Well, today I actually pulled my horse's blanket off for the first time in 2 weeks! Literally ALL I have done is pick his feet. Haven't even pulled him out at all. From Sunday through yesterday, the temps were down in the teens, with highs in the low 30's/high 20's. This is CRAZY for GA. It's still FALL, for goodness sakes! Last night, it took us 2 hours to make a 45 minute drive because of freezing rain. The roads were a MESS. I was glad to make it home in one piece! Then today, it got up to 60 ... so I took Tiki's blanket off.
I had PLANNED to ride the rest of December ... thinking maybe I'll take the rest of the month, then the first 2 weeks of January, and start riding again mid-January. It can't POSSIBLY be any colder then than it has been the last 2 weeks.
