I got a very quick ride in on Saturday morning up in the field. As it was, some rain had made the arenas too sloppy for jumping, and I had already gotten soaked riding in heavy mist and light rain on Thursday night.
Literally two minutes after I got back to being under the shelter of the barn, rain started coming down heavily.
Today, of course, the weather could not have been more pleasant. So I walked my animals around and got a little vitamin D.
I clipped Eli’s pasterns in an effort to prevent any mud fever/scratches. I’ve done this with all of my horses, and it makes it so much easier, especially in the winter, to keep pasterns clean and dry, and hopefully free of scratches!
Because today is sunny, warm, and breezy, my hope is at least one of the rings will be rideable Tuesday night. All week looks to be sunny and free of freezing temperatures, and I have time off because of Thanksgiving, so I’ll get in lots of good barn time!
