So you know what's NOT up? My saddle on a horse's back that's what. This weather is the pits! Today we're having crazy winds (nothing like CA though thankfully) and the high is 29. So with wind chill, that's single digits my friends. Gross. Anyone wanna trade? (Not you Katepeacecarrots, I know this would be a heat wave up there!)
Anyway, due to stupid weather conditions, this will probably be a pretty short recap. As you remember I got home from FL last Monday, and riding was pretty spotty last week. I had hoped to ride Thursday but by the time I got home from work the ring was getting crunchy already. I had a full night of cookie backing ahead too, so I just gave the boys each a quick grooming and headed toward the kitchen.
And then Saturday. The weatherman all week were saying a storm was going to miss us. Then all of a sudden on Friday they were like NOPE! Heading our way! And started predicting one to three inches of snow. Ok, that's tolerable. But by Friday night they were predicting 8-12 inches. Ugh. No thank you! The snow was starting early so no riding again.
I had a 1 o'clock hair appointment to keep me occupied though, so at least there was that.
Thankfully we only wound up getting a couple of inches. Three tops. Jampy isn't exactly a model riding citizen after a few days off, so I didn't even consider riding him in the snow Sunday... Ok, well I thought about it for maybe 10 seconds then laughed and noped right out of that. Rio however is a perfect prince so I dressed him up in his winter woolies and we went for a stroll around the ring. Neither of them has winter shoes on yet, and this snow was really sticky, so best to err on the side of caution. We don't need any injuries at the old age home!
I set up the phone so I could get some sad little riding media for this week's post.

The puggers aren't really big fans of winter. Artie especially hates being cold. He spends very little time outside and immediately comes in and lays on the heating vent. Smart dog!

Well, that's about it from here. How are things where you are? Getting much riding done? Are you ready for the holidays?
