Totally Dude, this stinks.
I woke up to a lovely 4+ inches of snow and knew in my heart that I should call Don and cancel his clinic. I am so sorry to tell everyone this, but I just dont think the situation is going to get any better. The news is saying that the “storm” is yet to come and will arrive this afternoon. By then we should have at least 6 inches and with the temperatures dropping into the 20s, no arena will thaw enough for anyone to ride on it. Don is going to call me tonight and we will try to find an alternate date, and of course, I will give money back to folks!
It is definitely the worst kind of snow out there for horses, it is wet and heavy. Besides the balling in the feet, we are dealing with nervous horses in the barns because the snow slides off the roof and scares the bejeezus out of them. If anybody has any extra snow cleates sitting around unused in their garages, I could use a bunch!
But the good news, it is fantastic snowball snow. Mark is currently in the doghouse for switching off his internal editor and smacking me in the head with a snowball! He thought it was a good idea at the time… revenge is lovely.
