Soggy Week

Team Taco has been laying low this week because of the snowstorm (a big deal around these parts) and subsequent soggy ground.

But the slower pace is not altogether unwelcome.  It is lovely to spend non-riding time with Taco.  He's a pretty fun guy on the ground.  He mugs for cookies and carrots and gets fussed over with nice long curries and hugs and kisses.  It's not that he doesn't get those things when we ride, but I can dawdle over them on non-riding days.  I can't help but think it deepens our relationship.

Here are some snapshots of him in the snow on Monday.  A beautiful horse in a beautiful scene!


Let's hope that after this weekend's rainstorm (yes, another one) things dry out and let us get back to it!  We are entered at Full Gallop March 13-14...

At least you're in good company re: weather. Except for those folks wintering in FL, the weather has been most uncooperative everywhere. Lellie fortunately has a HUGE sand arena and all that super Aiken footing to keep her horses going (which happily includes Rasta), but even Lell says things are pretty soggy in Aiken. Its actually sunny at RFI Farm today!!! Hug Taco man for me.
