Happy Spring Forward – 2015

March 10, 2015

I saw a meme on Facebook this weekend stating something about how spring forward is like Christmas for equestrians.  This spring forward we were just coming out of a snow storm with low temperatures and BOOM, we were hit with sunny temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

I had the say off with no plans and spent it mending fences, milling around, playing with the ponies and the dogs and enjoying the weather.  I saw for a while and watched the snow in the barnyard practically turning to mud before my eyes.

Monday morning hit and I had a spring forward hang over.  My head was tight, my eyes were tired and getting out of bed was like trying to wake from a coma.  We still had snow on the ground, but that was sure to melt quickly looking at a week of warm weather and some rain. And to remind me of my Sunday, my arms were a little pink and I felt like I absorbed some vitamin D.

  1. I was so thrilled with the warmer weather. The day light longer into the evening is great, too, but I was watching Once Upon a Time anyway, !!!

    I did, however, take full advantage of the insta-warmth and sun, and not only went out for a photo shoot, but also worked all 3 horses to the toboggan! Yay!!

  2. I can’t believe snow is still on the ground in Virginia. I remember how wild the weather used to be there

      it’s almost gone with these past few days in the 50s and 60s. Its completely gone at work just about 30 miles south of home, where we still have some on the fields. And of course, we have mud!

      • I still haven’t managed to escape the mud here in Mozambique. Enjoy Virginia for me
