My wonderful friend Melissa has been coming over in the week to chase my kid so I can ride. It has been a fabulous thing, I am a much better person when I get more saddle time.
Joy has been feeling great, no crankiness or excessive spookiness. She is looky but that is just in her nature. Generally during season changes she gets footy (slight hoof sore on gravel) crabby and touchy but this year she has been great. I don't want to be all OMG BALANCED MINERALS FIX ALL THE THINGS But I (not so) secretly am.

Anyone have any suggestions on cold weather breeches, something that will stand up to trail riding and Michigan winters?
