Cold to the bone.



Our winter blast of cold temps continues, now down in the teens. Finding myself not at all motivated to "endure". ~E.G.

  2. Michelle,

    I'm not sure yet. Thought about going to Versailles, but not firm on it yet. As I said the especially cold temps aren't inspiring to me at the moment. 30's, 40's, yeah I'm okay with that. Weather like today and footing? Not so much. If I firm up a plan I'll put you into the loop.

  3. You can come out here to ride if you want. I'm planning on doing a long slow ride sometime tomorrow. May even sneak out at noon and ride a little today too. But I'm not sure if I can get out to Versailles tomorrow. Let me know if that is where you are going and what time and I MAY be able to.

  4. The cold just makes things so unbearable! Feeding last night made my hands purple, with gloves on, and my toes were nearly black. Oh how i hate this negative 10 degree weather :(

  6. Here is Doc's lashes painted by a hoarfrost we had when I was in Maine. Ya know it's cold when your horse's whiskers, lashes, and tips of his hair are frosted white. :-) The landscape was beautiful and Doc seemed warm and comfortable in spite of his frosty look.

    I never minded the cold in Maine it was not unusual for the temp to be -20F in the early morning when I went out to feed. I learned if you bundle up properly, you hardly know its cold out.
