When we had this winter's first big "snow event" (as the local forecasters like to call them), I decided to take my 4 year old OTTB for his first bareback trail ride. I figured the 10" of fluffy white stuff would make a nice cushion for me if he didn't like me sitting on him bareback! He was totally unconcerned, and we had a nice ride.
If we get enough snow I'm going to remember to take a camera when I go out riding - the snowy trees are so beautiful!

Well, for the first day or two we'll be too busy plowing and shoveling , but once that's done we'll probably go for a ride around the neighborhood. It's about the only time we know that people won't be driving fifty miles an hour on our gravel roads!

I've seen more snow this winter in VA then I did the year I lived in CT... Yeah Global Warming.
I'm going to be too pooped to enjoy the snow for all the extra work it brings.

I love it! I may have to try this with DH's big belgian draft!!
Of course this is after all the work, as I have a pretty good feeling my stall mucker won't make it out, so 18 stalls later, putting out hay b/c DH will be out plowing and YES - I still love the snow!!
It's God's way of saying - be kids again - now go out and play!!
