My friend, Don on Traveler, & me on Magi, years ago in Chesterfield, County, Va. This was the blizzard of 2000. In Virginia, 10″ of snow brings things to a screeching halt unless, of course, you have a buddy with a 4-wheel drive vehicle and a good horse. I’ll never forget this particular day. It was soooooooo cold outside, but we had a ball. I’d pulled Magi’s shoes, leaving him barefoot for the winter so his feet wouldn’t pack with snow or ice and off we went. Magi was always particularly spunky during cold whether and he loved to frolic in the snow. That made two of us.
I had so many clothes on that day, I had to stand on top of the hitching post to climb aboard. The upside to winter is that if you fall off your horse, you have plenty of padding when you hit the ground. LOL. Thankfully, there were no falls that day, just lots of fun for us all.
