So far the winter of 2016 has been fairly tolerable with temperatures remaining consistently in the comfort range between zero and thirty degrees. I can actually forgive this winter the few mornings that I had to trudge out to the barn in twenty below zero, but only if February behaves itself by continuing the moderate trend. February arrives tomorrow and spring break is a mere eight weeks away, (who is counting?).
Today the temperature soared up to forty-six degrees giving cause for the horses to rejoice. Once blankets were removed there was no stopping the celebration. Their exuberance was captured in this video post.

As predicted, after the long stretch of balmy holiday weather, winter has taken a harsh grip in the last week. The drop in temperature and the blowing lake effect snow sends me on a fantasy hunt for the perfect horse farm that exists in a sunny climate. With a record 1.5 billion dollar Powerball jackpot at large, there are no budgetary restraints, (buy all the water you want to restore the green vegetation), to prevent us from enjoying the possibility of living in one of these incredible places. This year I am scouting out properties in California for a change just....because. Enjoy!
