In the effort to keep optimistic and pleasant about the present and impending doom that is winter in the midwest, I have crafted these 5 things I love about winter.
1. Pretty horse blankets. Because my QH cross apparently forgot how to grow hair this year, and while I have a mixed feelings about this (she’s so sleek and un-yak like at the moment) I’m glad she’s got two toasty warm blankets to cuddle up in.
2. Confirmation that I should indeed own 8 different varying weight jackets. Bonus points because if I get one jacket dirty, I can remove and voila! New clean jacket underneath for horse to slobber on.
I get Ponies get fat and fuzzy. And my new favorite pony (in the whole world) gets dapples on his booty. The cuteness is overwhelming.
4. My horse actually wants to be caught. In the summer she’s choosing between me (me=work) and grass. Now she’s choosing between me and 3 degree temperatures. I win.
5. Planning out the next year. I basically plan things for a living. So naturally playing with all the ideas for next year is great fun. What should we do next year? Where are the shows happening? What trails can I get to from here?
