Mara and I were able to ride the back trail this afternoon.
The pasture horses at the neighboring stable where all blanketed and munching on their round bales.
We circled back around and rode home through the bare fields.
It was refreshing to be “out” for both of us, and we would have ridden longer but my chilly toes sent us back to the barn. It was 24 degrees.
Chaps over ski pants were toasty but I think I need to pull out my winter boots too.
