It might be the fastest way to get around these days, and perhaps the only way I'm going to be able to pursue any activity with my horse!
I have never been on a sleigh ride before. I would love to someday. Is it all it's cracked up to be?
My horse and I are having a long distance relationship. It's like we're just pen pals. Paint Girl sends new pictures of him from time to time, and I email and ask her how he is doing.
Notice the lead rope hanging from his halter? Paint Girl was very proud of herself, and rightfully so. I had asked her if she could check My Boy's hooves for snow and ice. She tried to catch him a few days ago while he was eating hay, but he walked away from her and refused to be caught.
I advised her to try it while he was eating grain, and that did the trick. It was probably good for him to be caught for a brief hoof picking, then released.
They have been inundated with snow at their The Painted Creek farm. Soon, to be affectionately rechristened as The Icicle Creek. Or perhaps, The Snow Creek.
I think the end is almost in sight. We have a trend of warmer weather heading our way at the end of the week. Then begins the big unthaw. And as lovely as the snow has been, it's time for life to get back to some sense of normalcy.
Hopefully, after the holidays, I will be able to make it out to see my horse.
Baring any incoming earthquakes, tornadoes, or tsunamis.
