Our February routine is a fairly predictable one.
Get up, let the dog out, stoke the wood burning stoves, do office chores, if we have guests- make breakfast and feed the guests, feed the horses and haul a 6 gallon water can of hot water to their water tank. Back to the inside and work on chores around the place, until it gets dark and we feed the horses again. Watch a movie while eating dinner. Read, stoke the fires, go to bed.
No horseback riding in that list. Limited outdoor activity, period. With the temperatures running from 0 to the low 30's, and the wind blowing a lot of the time, neither us nor the horses are too thrilled with the prospect of saddling up and going for a trudge.
Get up, let the dog out, stoke the wood burning stoves...
Who was the genius that decided we should add the extra day in leap year to FEBRUARY?
