Sincere apologies to those of you who enjoy the equestrian content here, which has been pretty sparse lately. Old Man Winter has pretty much shut things down for a while. We’re going through one of those spells where the temperature never climbs above freezing for a week or longer, and the end isn’t in sight yet. That’s subnormal for this part of the country, but it happens occasionally. I haven’t been on a horse since last year (12/29). Actually, there was one day (1/8) when the weather was coöperative, and I thought I was going to hunt, until I caught Arthur and noticed he was missing a front shoe. It’s always something.
