Riding conditions today were marginal, at best. But, since I hadn’t been on a horse since mid-January, and marginal may be as good as it gets for a while, I decided Valentine’s Day was a good opportunity to spend some quality time with Arthur. I decided earlier in the week that I had to hunt this weekend, but had been waffling about which day. I thought hunting in the afternoon on Sunday instead of Saturday morning might compensate for the predicted 10-degree drop in temperature, and allow me a little more sleep. But when I saw that Sunday’s temperature drop would be accompanied by 15-20 mph winds, I decided Saturday was the day. Small field, sloppy ground, not much action, not much to blog about. But it was a good way to spend the day.
