Happy New Year!

Farah & Connie
The first day of a Brand New Year!  Yippee!  I'm so excited about our riders in the Derby getting out there & riding today!  Already the first miles have been logged!

Our ground is still frozen solid, but today we warmed to 40!  The warmest it's been in days & days!  Farah didn't lose any weight this year with our second place finish in the DD2014!  I'm pretty sure she will again be the highest mileage horse - & that was our goal :-)  After riding with this group for two-years, I'm sad to see the end of that Derby - but happy that it's morphed into more Virtual races in several different states, including ours!
