... a Thoroughbred mare
They're talking possible snow here by Wednesday, so I totally believe you--hehe! What do you do during the winter for riding? Do you have a place to ride indoors? :)
I have managed to always board where there is an indoor arena, but actually in Colorado you can ride outside most of the winter (Now I probably jinxed it.) Getting ready to ride is brutal, once you get on and get moving you warm up. The barn I am at now keeps the outdoor arena in good shape as much as possible all winter.
