|Ruffy peering at the water|
Rolex just decided to copy Ruffy and decided she didn't really want to go any further either. John dismounted, and tried to lead Ruffy across, but she was having none of it, balking with feet firmly planted on one side while John waded in the muddy water. Rather than turning it into a contest of wills, we called it a day and turned for home. Of course, this meant passing the scary snowman again. Rolex went out front, snorting, with Ruffy scooching by fast when she realized she might be left alone!
|Rolex wimping out on me|
You know it must be super scary for Rolex to stop and snort at things in the trail, but she was brave enough to not try racing for home!
My body seems to have healed up enough that I have no more chest pains from the fractured sternum and my carpal tunnel hand is getting stronger each day. Of course, then I went and jammed my pinky on my other hand--what luck! But I can once again lug grain bags, hay bales, and water buckets without pain!
Just when we thought we'd seen the last of the snow, we got another inch Friday night. It was enough to send people off the road, but not enough for the road crews to get out there until after 7:30. It was a slippery drive to the barn Saturday morning!
The sun is shining today--time to get going and in the saddle. We've got more snow heading our way Monday night through Tuesday. I guess winter isn't releasing her grip on us just yet.
This tree looks like it was struck by lightning, but we haven't had any--just high winds that seemed to have split it right in half!
