Sunday Links from Fairfax & Favor

Found this gem in our media archives apparently leftover from that time we deemed Michael Jung the Flava Flav of Eventing.

SIGH. Daylight Saving Time has now ended so yay for an “extra” hour of sleep and all that, but booooo for the evenings getting dark so early starting tonight! I grew up assuming everybody, like myself, always hated turning the clock back in the fall, but it turns out that the American public is somewhat evenly split and there are good cases both for keeping the ritual and getting rid of it. For me, as an amateur rider who works a 9-5 desk job, I hate that the darkness encompasses my after work barn time. But for equine professionals who are up and outside early on a daily basis, maybe the return of Standard Time every November is a welcome change. Which side are you on?
