I didn't do a pre-ride today before we started, so she was a little "goosey" going down the road. We jumped a big old flapping turkey, which startled her, but not too much drama associated with that. Her new thing is where the bank along the road is showing through the snow with red clay soil. Geeeeeeeeeez-O-Pete.
We do seem to be thawing out. In the forties today, and also supposed to be above freezing tomorrow. I'm thinking about booting her tomorrow and riding up and down our road and trying to just get the kinks worked out of that. She has been spooking at the same silly things since we started a year ago, you'd think she'd be over it!
