Winter Wonderland Continues

We are now well into 2010 and winter continues.   Snow, cold, and wind are this winter's main themes.   We are also enjoying a lot of winter sunshine.

The horses don't seem to mind the weather at all.   Those who need it get blanketed before turnout.   Heated water troughs are in each pasture.   And hay is delivered to the fields throughout the day.   So, with their basic needs taken care of, the horses are all content.

Admittedly, less training and riding is going on in the cold weather.   But on the milder less windy days, since the snow in the woods is not very deep, trailriding is still enjoyed.   And when work with any of the horses needs to be done, we simply retreat to the indoor arena.

Spring, when it finally arrives, will be greatly appreciated.   Until then, Winter Wonderland continues.
