This is just the beginning this morning but right now it is snowing heavily. I am at 700 feet. The neighborhood kids are standing at the bus stop wearing shorts...but then again it seems as if they are always wearing shorts nowadays no matter what the weather.
Went to a schooling horse show yesterday. Just to watch a friend and hubby ride. It took forever to get through in-hand and showmanship. By the time we were finished with the English classes and had an half hour lunch break, the western classes didn't start until 4:00. Hubby ended up riding in 2 classes instead of 4. Getting to late and to cold. He did alright though. Came home with a 4th and a 5th. One class was really large and the other (the one where he got 4th) only had 5 riders. He hasn't been riding much, so this was a work the kinks out deal. A lot of people showed up at this show. Lots of quarterhorses and paints. I don't think they expected such a big turnout what with the economy the way it is.
This weekend is the Dressage for the Ages show at the Salem fairgrounds if anyone is interested. I am probably going to try to go down for a while on one of the days. Try to take a few pictures. Anyone riding in it?
