What the heck right...If I'm going to work one fat horse, I might as work another one...
I started Bugs on the 'fatty' conditioning program too.
I've also started riding Moon and got a ride in on Turk today too. I made the official decision to switch Moon from running to the right barrel first to running to the left barrel first. So I have to make sure to work on his pattern as much as possible. He's a little confused at the moment. Moon does not like to do things differently than he always has.
We still have snow on the ground, although the temps have been around 40 for the last few days. It's just not melting much.
I had been avoiding riding Spooks and Turk because they are shod and they slip a lot more than the barefoot horses do. But it dawned on me this evening...The road is dry. Duhhh!!! There is no traffic on our road during the day and it's a 1/2 mile to the intersection. If nothing else, I can walk Turk and Spooks up and down the road for a little exercise.
The sun is still setting between these two hills...
It gets a tad farther north every few days or so. When it finally starts setting on the north side of that hill to the right...Spring will be here.
