Ven you got it, flaunt it.

You know, I'm getting rather tired of frozen buckets, creaky joints, and the general feeling that we will never warm up in.
I stop riding when it's below 30, and even when the weather peaked to 31, it was only briefly between snow and ice. Not that Sinari doesn't mind having the time off, I think she's more perturbed over not getting her turnout time. 

But the inconsistency of having a week on and week off is driving me nuts.I don't feel like I've accomplished much of anything this month because of it.

For every bit of wait to get back into the saddle, there's always a silver lining.

As most people know, I pimp SmartPak. I love the company and the service. Recently, we were featured in their magazine/catalog (with this photo, thankfully cropped to remove my less than stellar ass). While it's no the front cover, Page 46 is an excellent place to be.

Psh. You stop riding when it's below 30. I stop riding when it's below 0. Sometimes.

That is awesome about the magazine! It is sitting in our tack room and now I am going to look through it and find you. I like the picture, I really need to learn how to do that braid so Bodhi does not look like such a rag-a-muffin.

Golden- The braid is easy. Just keep on doing it to get it right. If I remember correctly about haflinger mains they look thin, but really are thick. You might need to thin it out though to get it tight enough;-)

Andrea- I've been southernfied. I just can't bring myself to trek over ice to the indoor. At least you have packed snow (and people who know how to handle it!), I don't want to risk a tendon.

I saw your picture in the magazine! Congrats!
