On a Sunny Day in January
I saddle up the Haflinger for a short ride, and remember I haven't ridden in a few months.
I remove weeks of manure from stalls and paddocks.
I remove my winter coat and marvel that it is January in Ohio and I am wearing only a sweatshirt and turtleneck.
I take a long hike with the dogs.
I work the dog on sheep.
I forget about the dreary, wet December when I thought the sun would never shine and the mud would never dry.
