A Winter Ride

The short ride was bitter-sweet,
Needed the time, but I froze my feet.

Bundled from ear to ear,
In my very best & warmest gear.

My fingers tingle, for we're startin' out slow,
But we need to hurry before we see snow.

His long winter hair is soft & warm,
Even as colts, I don't know how they last through the storm.

When my butt hits the cold, hard saddle,
I've already won half of the battle.

The harsh wind makes my eyes cry,
But I love my life, not gonna lie.

The summer heat will soon be here,
But I wouldn't trade this winter ride for a lighthouse & chandelier.

I'll soon be warm inside,
It's just how bad you want to ride.

I think I speak for everyone.

This weather sucks.

My mom took a picture yesterday of some icicles, that were hanging off of a shed in the yard, that were pointing south...

I'm just gonna let that sink in for a minute.
Hope you are staying warm, wherever in the world you are!
