With the weather getting up to a balmy 40 degrees yesterday, I am hopeful that a reprieve from the cold temperatures is approaching. For most of you, I’m sure that means plenty of barn time is in store. How do your horses handle a break in the cold temperatures? They usually seem as relieved as I do when the sun pokes out and the thermometer climbs into the positive reading again. Perhaps it’s just because they are thankful to shed at least one of the blanket layers that we impose during this time of year. The good news is that the 2014 season is officially showing signs of life as the Ocala Horse Properties Winter Horse Trials kick off today. I am not sure that I have ever been more thankful to see live scores as I am now.
