Today we are in the middle of the first decent snow storm of the winter. We have had close to a foot of snow already and there is more in the forecast tonight. We spent much of day out in the snow, plowing, shoveling, and playing. The Horses enjoyed the snow for a while, but they were happy to head back to the barn. The followed me in like puppies and walked straight into their stalls! Ariana sledded down a small hill at the barn all by herself – the first time she has actually been brave enough to go it alone. Tomorrow afternoon we will try sledding at a much bigger hill in the South Chagrin Reservation Metropark. Hopefully she is brave enough to try that one too. Austin is taking advantage of the snow by spending the day snowboarding with a couple of his friends.
