I have no pictures from my next expo event… but I’m on the look-out for some. I won’t keep you in suspense long… I’ll post the finale of the Mane Challenge soon; pictureless if need be.
Meanwhile, back at the mud ranch, it reached.... (drumroll please).... a big honkin’ 51 degrees today! And best of all, the sun graced us with its presence about 3:00 this afternoon. I could have sworn I heard angels singing! Heck, I was singing! We were literally doing flip flops in the air! And better yet, tomorrow is going to be in the 60’s! Yes, 6-0! Eighty degrees warmer than it was at the coldest part of the winter! It is sooo time to ride!
I’ve challenged the Horsetalers and I’ll challenge you, my blog readers, to take a virtual ride with me. On Thursday, saddle up your favorite horse and ride! Go down the trail, down your gravel road, or in your pasture, arena – wherever! Celebrate the warmest day in eastern Nebraska in 2010! And know there are others miles away doing the same thing. Then report back here how it went.
Where did you go?
What horse did you ride?
How long was your ride?
Was there excitement on your ride?
I’m off work at 4:30. Hope to be home shortly after 5:00. Clothes changed, saddled & ready to ride by 5:30! With daylight saving time (thank you Franklin Roosevelt and Richard Nixon), it is light until almost 7:30 now.
Why all this excitement over 60 degrees? Because mother nature is just toying with us. Seeing what we are made of. Because snow is expected here again on Friday. It’s the only break we are going to catch for awhile. So just do it! Do it now!
