First of all, a Happy and Prosperous New Year to All.
This is not the original topic I'd planned to write about this month. However, some other projects have taken precedence, which I need to get done before eyelid surgery in February. That, and the bitterly cold weather which has descended led me to this topic. As a caveat, let me say that while I'm no fan of the cold, I'm tired of how so many people today react as if it's the end of the world. News flash- it's winter, it gets cold, and it snows... especially in New England, the Midwest, the Plains, and the Rockies. Get over it, deal with it, or move to Acapulco.
Which brings me to cold and, what else, horses?
