don't ya love the weather service?

If I look on my computer, it says that it is 36 degrees, cloudy with a 7mph wind.  If I look out the WINDOW, the skies are clear, the sun is shining and the wind is blowing so hard that it will knock you flat on your butt.    I have three lessons to teach and a horse to ride.  I was looking forward to a horsey day today.... I wish the wind would tone it down a bit.

update:  I got 50% done and I'm satisfied.  One lesson postponed.  I did two indoors and both went well.  The second was a green appendix mare, her first lesson and she jumps soooo cute.  I just love her.  Her owner wants to do regular lessons so I will try to get a picture to post.   She is also for sale if you are looking for a green, pretty, opinionated, athletic appendix mare.  :-)
I didn't get to ride Nina, I just hate the wind.  I put her in the turnout and she ran and bucked and screamed for about an hour.  It's a different reaction to icy wind than mine.

  1. I hate wind! It's blowing like crazy here today too. I live in a really tiny town, so I believe our weather reports actually come from a city that is way to the north from us and in a different valley. Why they think our weather would ever be like theirs I have no idea.

  2. Haha, I made the mistake of checking the weather before I left the house (or my bedroom) this morning. The temperature was 5 degrees, without the windchill. You know what the best part is? Its supposed to be colder tomorrow. We didn't have much in the way of wind, though. The wind chill really sucks. My sympathy (and a warm cup of tea) extends to you and Nina.

  3. As I'm reading this at 11pm it is 20 below and windy in Fargo. :( Maybe bucking and screaming is a good idea. :)

  4. I just spent the day reading your entire blog! I love seeing how Nina's progressed! I hope she sees her first event soon! Here's one more avid reader for your fantastic blog! I'm pretty sure my filly, Gracie, would be exactlly like Nina(when you first got her) if some one had treated her the way Nina must have been treated. Luckily I'm the only one she's been trained by. Not the infamous carrot stick swinging NH gurus. ^^

  5. Sounds like you had a pretty productive day despite the weather service.

  6. Sophie, thank you and welcome. And Rita, you win the 'My Crappy Weather Beats Your Crappy Weather' award this week. 20 below before midnight! Good grief! It doesn't make me feel any warmer, but it reminds me that I could be colder!!!!
