|Ah - beautiful!|

The three of us talked and laughed and joked while asking our horses to carry us around the outdoor arena, churning up the unbroken snow with hoof-sized chunks coated in the sandy dirt footing of the arena. After a couple passes around, the snow-and-chunk mixture took on the exact appearance of cookies-n-cream ice cream!

The footing was wonderful, and we all enjoyed cantering our horses through it; I really noticed how soft Rhio's footfalls were in the snow. We played follow-the-leader a little bit, and just generally goofed off. It's nice to know that we are all still kids at heart - enjoying a good romp in the fresh snow. Though now our hot cocoa is dressed with flavored liquor instead of marshmallows - yum!
