Do you want to go riding, Joy??
It’s all ice on top of the snow. I don’t even fall through when I jump on it.
I really wanted to ride today, but I don’t think it’s safe (footing wise).
Yeah, I cut Joy’s forelock. Yeah it looks silly.
She’s got half her forelock growing out, so I trimmed it to be all one length. It’ll look better by spring.
The great debate: do I pull Joy’s mane so she looks like a dressage pony, or let it grow long? I’m leaning toward short. However, running braids are the easiest and fastest braid ever. I could throw a really nice one in within 3 minutes. Button braids… I haven’t don’t those in 20 years. And what I remember is a lot of swearing, numb arms, and sore fingers.
