Re: Winter reather & Christmas

A week ago we had record highs, and this week they say we're going to have
record lows!  Just in time for Christmas (and to kill off the fly
population).  My furry horses are a lot more comfortable in this cold than
in that heat!  And after spending the weekend in Boise, it feels positively
balmy here.  Thanks to Karen Steenhof for putting on a great party; it was
wonderful to get together with such a great gang of endurance (and
dressage, Karen <g>) riders.

Happy holidays to everyone from sunny (and cold) SoCal!
