But More Is On the Way
I woke up yesterday to snow. Just a coating. Pretty, actually, especially since it didn't need to be shoveled and it was going to be warm enough to melt nearly all of it by day's end. We are supposed to get more snow tonight--perhaps several inches--but again when it warms up next week, that too will melt.
Here's what we had last year:
This year? Almost the same day? Here's Toby:
I'll be honest. After last year, we've earned a break. But winter is not yet over and some of the worst storms I remember were in March, so I am not counting on anything at this point. Instead, I'll just enjoy the beauty of nature when she is not being too cruel to us.
I longlined both Tucker and Chance the day before the snow. Tucker did some very silly aerial maneuvers, but gave me a lot of nice work in between. Chance was going absolutely beautifully until he got his tongue over the bit. This was his proper bit too. I don't know if I had it adjusted too low after fixing the bridle, or if he was having a problem with tongue pressure. I raised it up a hole or two for now, but I may try out the Myler bit I bought for Tucker some time ago and never tried.
First, though, I have to look the bit up on the Myler site to see what it says about tongue pressure. If it's the right one to relieve that, it's worth a shot. If not I still supposed it's worth the experiment.
I hope to ride a little today as it's nice out and the snow is not scheduled to arrive until evening. But time's a wasting and I still have to eat lunch--just heard my casserole timer ding.
And here's the "Can You Spot The Ball?" quiz from the other day.
Here is the "reveal."
Wonder exactly how it got there?
It wasn't very windy that night.
