Snowy days and sunshine

Wow, did you guys get a snowstorm yesterday, too?! It was crazy! It was snowing when I woke up in the morning, and it didn’t stop until there was a good inch or two on the ground. It snowed even more than it had the night before!

Look at all that snow!

Mommy groomed me and put on my medium-weight pink blanket before putting me out into one of the small paddocks. It was still snowing, but only lightly by that time. I stood by the fence and waited until the rest of my friends were ready to come outside, too.

Jelly Bean and Jube Jube came into the paddock next to me, and we hung out waiting for Isis ad Leo to make their way out, as well.

Isis went into the paddock on the other side of me. She and I were both really excited about the snow, so we trotted around and then raced each other back and forth along the fence line. Of course, I let her win… I didn’t want her to feel bad if she lost.

Isis and I raced each other! But we didn't run very fast... we were just having fun.

It was so much fun to play in the snow! It reminded me of New York!

I couldn't help myself... I just love playing in the snow!

Even though it was still chilly outside, the snow was already beginning to melt by the time Leo got out to his paddock. Mommy said that the sun would be out soon, and that the snow wouldn’t last too long once it got sunny. I made sure to take advantage of my time in the snow while it lasted!

Sure enough, by mid-morning the sun was out, and by noon all of the snow had melted! By the early afternoon, you wouldn’t have even known it had snowed at all, because everything was pretty much dry. There were still patches of mud here and there, but even the arena had drained. It’s crazy how the weather here does that!

Daddy moved us all out of the little paddocks and into the big fields so we would have more grass to eat, and Mommy even took me out for a short ride. She rode me bareback again, and we had a lot of fun… we even hopped over a couple little jumps!

By the time we were finished with our ride, the sun was so warm that we didn’t even need our blankets anymore. It was a great day.

This morning, my Mommy and Daddy came early to hang out with me and groom on me and play with me in the field.

Chillin' with my humans. What a gorgeous day!

I get the day off today, and I’m actually pretty happy about that because it’s the perfect day to hang out and graze with my best friend, Leo!

Leo is keeping watch while I roll in the grass, then we're going to go graze.

I hope y’all have a fun, warm day to relax, too! I’m going to go eat some grass now, but I’ll catch you tomorrow!

Have a good day! Eat lots of grass! Soak up the sunshine!
