    Default Warm on the East coast -- fun horsey plans for New Years Day?

    Today, rode my sweet girl around outside for a while, tomorrow will do the same, AND will get to introduce my best friend's 6 year old daughter to Rooster the 20 yr. old QH who LOVES little girls. Can't wait, I think they will both have a great time.

    What does everyone else have planned in the way of horsey New Year's Fun?

    Hoping that the snow will have melted enough to actually get out on the trail for a while! Tried yesterday and it was still too deep to get through...

    Hope everyone enjoys your New Year!

    I will be spending the day at the New Year's Day auction in Thurmont.

    Not looking for a horse, but some tack would be nice.

    if it's raining we'll be brushing and fussing. if not we'll do some pony rides around the barnyard. either way, i can't wait!
    at home i'll be bonding with the new pony, brushing her and working on a bit of handwalking like a mannerly little girl.

    Riding my youngster, moving my other youngster toward riding and riding my big girl bareback -- I decided that I could use the seat and balance work, and she's so big, fat, warm and fuzzy that she is a natural for going bareback.

    I rode my Tb bareback in the snow yesterday. She was very, very good and the snow was dry enough that it didn't snowball in her hind feet. She has the loftiest trot when ridden in fresh snow, and she was great at canter too. I do have to sit on a thick saddle pad otherwise her spine kills me, but since I don't use a girth, it still qualifies as bareback in my book. We had fun and it put a smile on my face for the rest of the day!

    I live in Cincinnati and today it's back in the 40's but yesterday the thermometer hit 65 and it felt great! The down side is now we have lots of mud since all of the snow has melted.
    I took the opportunity to give my grey gelding a nice bath, clipped him and pulled his mane.
    It felt wonderful to ride in just a long sleeve t-shirt and breeches without having on 5 layers of clothes.
