Last Sunday morning I woke up and it was 19 degrees outside. We went on a ride by the river, and even though it was sunny, we still wore light jackets. When I brushed my riding horse (Wrigley), I had enough horse-hair stuck in my brush to make a Shetland pony.
Each ride this week I’ve been able to wear lighter and lighter clothing. Today the temperature is predicted to reach 70. Wrigley is almost done shedding. I hope so anyway, she’s been shedding so much I can’t even wear lip-balm because my lips end up all fuzzy, I look like I’ve kissed a porcupine.
The horses are feeling good, the jackrabbits are out. On every ride you can hear the Meadowlark sing and Killdeer make a racket protecting their nests.
Spring is definitely here.
