Here's my beautiful girl waiting patiently on the hitchrail for me to get myself together and ready.
We decide on the route up my little mountain and over toward Zoe's house - then down the other side - to exit out the other side and trot home on the road. Now - last week I ended up sliding down this little roadway with my tractor because of the ice - we have so much running water still that is freezing it will be a difficult winter if it keeps up. We tried to keep the horses to the middle or the edge so they had some purchase in the crispier snow.
Up into the pine woods.
Couple of good views of the RAC jacket which by the way is, according to Zoe, very cozy and very durable ! :)
They are even hauling logs today ! The little stuff is being chipped for the large chip furnaces that are popular now in Vermont.
Supposedly very energy efficient and acceptably "green".
We crossed the road, zipped into another trail and wound around out to this field and barn, which makes a nice somber winter photo.
Here we are - Keri and me... trotting home. I am not sure what is up with my chicken elbows.. but it could be the many layers. I am even wearing my new insulated overpants. That's a lot of clothes !! I asked Susan if I looked like a red snowy weeble wobble.
And you can see Keri is a snowflake icicle queen too. You can't see it because it's partly cropped out- but the charm Michelle made is still on Keri's bridle. We won that for something with the RAC.
