Or something like that.
Horrendous pun aside, it’s hard to deny that attempting to clean snow covered paddocks is not even remotely amusing. Well, not for the person cleaning anyhow; my horses all seem pretty pleased with themselves though and the bystanders at the barn apparently get a kick out of my ability to string together unique combinations of profanities, so there’s that anyway.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 33-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
