And by the way -- we still do trot up to that pink house ... I try not to have negative expectations that my mare will be rude... This past week- we ended up there, in a round about way as we found a new trail which headed in that direction.. Because of the ice everywhere, we have been riding some loops which include the highway -- and crossing over to the other side of the mountain. It seems warmer over there and less ice on the backroads.
The snowmobile club cut a new trail through the woods which for some reason we have not seen until this day. No snowmobile tracks-- but someone on a mountain bike has ridden through.
Warm sun (but super cold wind) .. the shadows are longer, spring is closer -- and it's almost time for sugaring.
trail choice.. a rope across does not stop us from investigating.
Views from the front lawn of the pink house - That's Okemo skiing area.
trot and canter home on the highway.
