Sleigh Rides

The snow and cold weather consistently brings us calls for sleigh rides. While the temperatures are reasonable during the week, the weekends seem cursed with lower temps and, most importantly, gusty winds that take the breath right out of your chest! The wind on Blue Hill blows like a demon over the 200 acre corn field, and it is enough to drive a sane person mad until the horses enter into the protection of the woods. Tonight there is a prediction of more snow, not much, perhaps 1-2 inches. Horses are snug in the barn, their round bales covered in tarps outside to keep them dry until morning.
