It's Pirate and Sam doing some training in the pasture :heart: So in love with Autumn n-n

... and the glowing pixel squares? Eh well basically I was teaching myself how to use GIMP and I clicked on the pixel brush and I clicked on my drawing... and then I was like o: that could look really cool if I did.... and then this happened XD

GIMP made my style a bit more messy though o-o" maybe I'm just lazy ahahah XD and don't ask why Sam's neck is a stick. Because I don't know why. 



Not sure whether to keep the pixels in the front or not though o.O



I love this pair though I am a dummy!  Path Walker by Chotta18

omg, I love the effect with the squares! Love 
Sadly, the position the horse is in is abuse. Not very beautiful in my eyes.

Thank you!

How come? He's carrying himself, his ears are relaxed and he's trotting through grass?

Also, Chotta, I don't want you to agree if you don't want to, just see it from the horses perspective. Think Like A Horse! Spirit5

Because the position his head is in is unnatural. Horses don't walk like that with the neck curved :c And don't say it is wrong, because is has been proven to be unnatural and bad for the horse. Even if the horse does it on it's own, somebody probably learned to do so. Wild horses don't do that. Wild horses don't get problems, because humans aren't ruining them, and if they get problems, they die, and they won't make more bad horses. Wild horses don't need shoes either, or blankets, or a stall to be in at night time. I seriously can't see why it is necessary to ruin the horse, just to make it look pretty. I would never sit on another animal, because they aren't made for that, and especially not put metal in there mouth and feet. 
I'm talking from a horse whispers perspective, 99% of all riders live a lie, when it comes to horses, and you can't even blame them, because they don't know better, even if it seems logical. 

You can check this channel out, this horse whisper knows more about horses than 20 champion horse trainers do together. 
www.youtube.com/channel/UCwdVL…

But don't see this as a personal attack. I like the drawing, and maybe you didn't even know what is natural and unnatural, but if you want me to respect the horse part of you, agree with me. At least the horse is walking in grass, that is a good thing.

When a horse puts his neck down he pushes his spinal chord up and that allows him to support his back through other muscles, especially in the hind end. People encourage this because they don't want their horses to get back problems. It is true that some people exaggerate this or force it without the horse properly supporting his back which is bad for the horse. Many wild horses don't support their back because they don't know how. They also don't need to carry extra weight on their back. But it would be better for all horses if they learned to support their back. If they don't, it is because they are unbalanced and don't use their hind end. 

Wild horses don't walk on cement and therefore don't need shoes, not all horses wear shoes and especially show horses mainly because they don't need them. Wild horses get many foot problems because they don't get proper foot care, correct? 

Wild horses have thick coats so they don't need blankets. Wild horses are evolved to the harsh conditions, thoroughbreds on the other hand are more sensitive to the weather. 

I've seen horses who love their work. Such as quarter horses when working with cows. They get very passionate and will even try to force the cows to do what they want. 

Have you seen this horse whisperer? www.youtube.com/user/nature2pr… A stallion allowed the guy to ride on his back without a bit or anything. The horse was completely at peace and chose to be with Klaus. If the horse is happy, I don't see a problem. 

Horses may not have originally been made to be sat on, but over the years they have evolved to be much stronger and as long as they aren't being ridden for excessive amounts of time and without much of a break or proper stretching, then I think they will be fine. 

And this person: www.facebook.com/NorahKohle/vi… she washes her horses without tieing them up or anything, she rides with just a neck rope.

And this person: www.facebook.com/matildebrandt… her horse lives in the forest. She still rides him and he is very happy. 

I'm not just thinking in the perspective of the rider or just the perspective of the horse. I am thinking of the perspective of the bond between the horse and rider, the happiness of the rider and the happiness of the horse. All of these horses seem very happy and if they thought their riders were abusing them, they wouldn't run up to them when the rider comes out. 

I don't see this as a personal attack, but an attack towards equestrians and the horse-and-rider bond. The feeling of truly connecting with a horse is amazing whether you are riding them or walking with them and I don't see why this should be discouraged.

I probably misunderstood the position, because it looks like this:
library.academialiberti.de/blo…
Because it looks like, the position is similar, so why wouldn't the effect be? That was just how I was thinking, but centimeters can for some reason make a difference. 

However, one thing is the neck, another one is the bit. It isn't exactly abuse or mean to the horse, but it will hurt and irritate the horse, even if you don't yank on it. Bad balance can cause pain, not paying attention can cause pain, and even if you don't touch the reins, the horse will get irritated in the nerve system, that goes right up to it's brain, and that hurts like tooth pain. Bits are made to cause pain, so you easier can get respond from the horse, and the worst is that bits haven't changed for thousands of years, not in a good way. Bits are actually getting worse, and people think bits are necessary, but they are not. 
Here the horse whisper (Rick Gore) points out some things, but ignore the "I hate pink" thing, it is more like an intern joke.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1ejjf…

Bits make communication weak, and the rider rarely understands the horse, which is why they think bits are necessary. Metal in a horses mouth is not the right answer, if you love that horse. It will take some time to ride without, but the horse will be way more happy without the bit, and your bond will get stronger to the horse. That rider-horse-bond you were talking about. 

But about the neck, it isn't nice to use pressure to make the horses neck like that. If you use constant pressure, the horse isn't going to learn as effective as with pressure and release, because pressure is command, and release is the reward, that tells the horse when it did something it was supposed to. And the reason why you are putting so much pressure on, is because of the bit, and tight reins, as if you were afraid to loose control. People with tight reins don't know how to relax on a horse. 
You can read about bits/reins here and what they do:
www.sustainabledressage.net/ta…

Horses are not supposed to walk on cement, and shoes or not, it will hurt there feet, because they aren't build for hard ground, the horse weights a lot, and with a rider, even more weight. Have you ever seen when professional horse people move horses? They don't want the horses to touch cement or asphalt, whatever hard ground there is, horse feet are made for grass and dirt. 
Wild horses don't have feet problems, because the nature foot cares them. Horses in the wild move all the time, they run, play, escape from predators, whatever happens, they often move, and that wears the hoofs down. Maybe they aren't very pretty to look at, and of course wild horses can have feet problem, and humans can probably give them better hoof care, but if wild horses got hoof problems, they probably just move too little, are something happened, maybe an injury, or it was born with wrong feet. 

As you just mentioned, horses are different, and have different skin, so saying wild horses have better skin, just because they are wild, I don't believe that is true. I might be true that some horses needs blankets, because of age or sensitive skin, but if you take a look at a riding school, you will see at least one horse with a blanket on, and I don't really mind blankets, but they are bad for the horse in the rain, because the horses hair can't cash the rain naturally. Wild horses don't get sick, because nature gave them fur, that catches rain, so it doesn't touch the horse. That is why you shouldn't brush a wet horse, because it might make the water touch the horse. 

If a horse is chasing cows, that horse is weird. Horses don't chase other prey animals, they will actually search comfort and safety, because more eyes means better chance of seeing predators. Horses have instincts, and I have never heard of horses chasing other prey animals without a good reason. If it is doing it by itself, the horse might try to dominate and be leader in the group, but I'm not sure why it would such a thing to cows...  Confused 

I didn't know this horseman, but I saw one of his videos, and I liked it. The music got kind of irritating, but I guess the guy is playing on all of this horse soul stuff, so why not put epic music on. The reason why he was able to handle the horse without problems, is because he is communicating with it, and sacking out the horse. First, I got the horses respect, and after some time, he won the horses trust, and faced him, maybe with an active tail, but not too bad. :) That is possible with any horse, a stallion might be a tiny bit more difficult, but horses are predictable, and so is stallions. I also liked how he didn't lock the horse in corners or a stall, that means he really knows what pressure and release is about. 

It is nice to see people who care for there horse, though horses prefer open space, because they are claustrophobic, a forest is better than a stall. 
And if a person can ride with only a neck rope, she probably trust her horse a lot, good :) 

Let me tell you something. Horses are forgiving. Even if you abuse them all day, at some point, they will just deal with it, and forgive you. That is why horses are easy to bully, you cannot do the same thing to a donkey, because donkeys don't forgive that easily. At some point, the horse will just deal with the bit being there, or the shoes, or all this other stuff the horse goes through.
But when you sit on the horse, it thinks "work". It may be happy, but that will not change the fact that horses don't like to work, it is like saying humans like to run, because they are happy. I'm happy, but I don't run, unless something is chasing me or I want to run. 
And if the horse runs over to the rider, it isn't always a good thing. Have you ever tried seeing a horse that seemed happy to see it's owner, but when it got out of the fold, it started ignoring the owner. That is called being smart. It can also be because the horse think you have food or knows you are going to give it food. There are horses who come, because they want to, maybe because they are curious and wants to say hallo, but that isn't something they do 100% of the time. :o

Ohhh no! I would never draw that unless he were tripping or something hahaha That position seems painful for the horse's mouth and bad for their spine and neck. The difference is that Pirate (my horse), is holding up his head which allows him to arch his back therefore keeping him balanced. The horse in that photo has his head being pulling into his neck and the horse would just be focusing on the bit instead of saying balanced. It's more about how the horse's neck is shaped and how the head is tilted. 

Don't worry, I know the issues about bits. Yeah, sorry I don't really like to watch videos about barrel racing, it's really bad on the horses. That video is really painful to watch and I couldn't finish it :'D I agreed with what you say about bits, even though they go in a place where there are no teeth, it does irritate the teeth and the mouth. I have used a rubber bit though. But the horse really hated it hahaha I think it's because it tasted funny XD

Really, all you need to ride a horse is just your legs and posture. You don't need reins. However, this is only if your horse trusts you and you trust your horse. Because sometimes when a horse gets scared, they can forget that you are on them and will be very scared. Sometimes it helps the horse to know that you are right there with them such as through a halter or something. 

When training a horse to arch his neck, you should let the horse learn it on his own and then praise them when they do. Then he learns to carry himself and not pull on the bit or the reins, or drop his head. If you ask me, there isn't really a need to use pressure and release. Just ride and make sure the horse is comfortable, focused and balanced. Then slowly loosen your reins and the horse will lean into the reins because the horse seeks the guidance through them. Then when you know that the horse is seeking this guidance, you can just focus on making sure the horse is balanced. Then the horse will put his head in the right position and carry himself. They'll do this naturally. Although what I've learned works well is also to squeeze the rein on the same side that the horse needs to pick up his leg, then when he moves onto the other leg release the previous rein and squeeze the other. This get's the horse to focus on the rhythm and will naturally just put his head in the right place. It's pretty amazing actually. Because of the squeezing and the horse focusing on his own rhythm, he won't be pulling on the bit or forcing you to hold his head. You also don't need a bit to do this, you can use a hackamore and it will work just as well. 

What you say about the horses walking on cement is really true. Some people even give the horses padded soles to protect the horse's feet. Almost like walking on a cushion or like a person wearing shoes. Cement also jars a horse's legs and if a horse were forced to walk on cement such as going on a trail but having to cross a bridge, it should only be done at a walk. Sorry for mentioning that horses walk on cement. Then again, wild horses such as mustangs have very tough hooves just because of natural selection. Some horses have very soft hooves and they need shoes otherwise their hooves could wear down too easily. 

I'm pretty sure wild horses get sick, and when they do, they die. I'm not saying just because wild horses are "wild" they have better skin. I said the same thing as you did ^^ Their fur is thick and full of dirt so the rain doesn't make them cold. Although they can have rain rot. If a horse is in the rain and has a blanket and then is left that way, then that is a bad riding school because they should know better. 

Hahaha well I suppose those horse instincts about the cows were developed like a skill then XD It's their job to get the cow to stay where it needs and they know it's their job, and they know they are good at it. Although at first they were taught that it is their job, but it is amazing to see how passionate a horse can get about their job XD 

Yeah the music and the video editing sucks! XDD Yeah, he builds trust and then goes from there, only doing what the horse is comfortable with.

I think if you abused a horse all day they may get trauma and then never trust humans? Especially if it happens a lot? If you whip your horse every day, the horse would start to attack you.

I suppose with shoes, horses don't really mind. Since it protects their feet anyway.

Well that would be saying that humans don't like work. But there are many people who thoroughly enjoy their job and enjoy getting work done. Some people genuinely enjoy running and enjoy exercise, just like horses. I rode a horse who loved jumping so much, when you brought him into an arena with jumps he'd get so excited and he would even try to jump them when you don't want him to. 

What do you mean "get's out of the fold"? Of course if the horse thinks you will give it food then it will come, then once it realises you don't it will probably walk away. I've had horses walk up to me, and even though I don't have food, they'd follow me around. It was soo cute! If a horse doesn't have the bond with you then they are probably just coming because they are curious! XD or think you have food hahah

I surfed a little on the internet to learn more about the horses neck, it is true that a curved neck gives better balance, but you shouldn't use your reins to make the horse do it. This video shows true natural bending in horses which aren't scared or in pain. They are just playing, learning, spending time with a human, while they hold their balance without anything else than themselves. 

www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpHJfl…

If you use a bit and tight reins like in the drawing, it is going to hurt more than help the horse, you cannot teach a horse when it's in pain. A horse will normally move it's head a lot to keep balance, and a curved neck can give just as much imbalance as balance. I have read a couple of sites, telling about neck bending, but because they don't show enough evidence, I watched videos instead. Videos always show more through than a site ever will. :)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=oo8q3a…

That video shows something very different, the horse seems to be in balance, but in your drawing, the neck is curved back, and it looks painful. Maybe it is because you draw a very thick neck, but that is why I didn't want to look at the drawing, and more at horses in reality with same position. I do not see any horses with a neck like that, where it looks comfortable or natural. But because it is a drawing, I can't blame you for any weird anatomy or whatever there might be, but tight reins is something you choose to make, it is easy to make, and therefore I guess they are supposed to be tight. They are not in balance either, since the riders arm and the reins should make a straight line and the neck should make a natural line from the back spine to the neck spine. 


In Ricks video, I want you to see what he points out as bad horsemanship, lack of communication and trust. This is not something I agree with, but when Rick sees a rider with a helmet on or a bit, it means weakness and lack of trust and communication with the horse. If you choose to have it on, even if you are comfortable or maybe have ridden horses for a very long time, I can agree, it is weak. A helmet can not save you, if the horse kicks you, even in the head, there is a 80% chance of hitting you where there are no helmet, because often the helmet is on top of your head, and only protects you if you fall off. I know helmets are for when you fall off, but the problem is that some people think they are safe, just because they have a helmet on. But the helmet is one thing, and I really don't mind helmets, but bits... They are way worse, because you are putting unnecessary pressure and pain on the horse, so you better can steer it. Horses don't throw there head, open the mouth, have a tense neck or feel discomfort in the mouth, if there is no bit.

But if you understand bits, and what they do to horses, why do you than use them??? I really don't care about what you draw, bit or not, do what you like, but it is different in reality. I don't know if you normally ride with a bit, but if you don't, why would you then draw them, even if you know what they do. I just find it very strange. 


A horse doesn't forget you are on it no, it simply is impossible, unless the horse can't see or feel you. Horses get spooked, if you do something they don't see, that is correct, but the horse will never forget there is a creature on it's back, forcing it to work and ruins its mouth, I don't understand how you can think that. 
I agree that using a halter is the best way to steer a horse, unless you use your body, that is even better, but you don't need a halter, before the horse knows you exist. The horse can get spooked because of something or someone, you can spook it if you do something, but it will never get spooked because of something that didn't happen. 

When you say praise, what do you mean? Because doing it with food can be dangerous, if you do it too often, and it is hard to learn without using pressure and release, which you can do, but not if you want the horse to do it himself. Riding without using pressure and release is almost impossible, since you use it in every move. You can learn the horse what some movements mean, but it will create an uneasy horse, if the movements are too big, and that is why you should use pressure and release. By using the horses sense of feeling, you can make it do things, just by squeezing your legs or pulling the reins. If you use release in the right way, the horse will be comfortable, but never when you ride it, a horse is never comfortable with a human on its back, telling it to do unnatural things like jumping and weird gaits. It is comfortable in natural environments (pasture) with other horses, and people who understand them. Giving release in a pasture can make a horse feel comfortable around you, and see you as the leader, you don't have to beat the horse, to make it face you. Here is another one of Ricks videos:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2gg6O…


I believe that because of different breeds, there are different hooves, where most of them are created by humans, focusing more on good gens than bad gens. Walking is the best way to deal with hard surface, but I think it will get hard for the horse no matter the gait. 
But even then, I don't think any horse needs shoes, even if it can prevent damage to the hooves. The reason why I don't like shoes, is because they are hard, uncomfortable, makes it easier for infection to happen, and it stops the natural growth of the hooves. The last thing is where I think hooves actually can make it worse for soft hooves, because if they can't grow, they will get even more soft. That is just how I think, but I don't know. 

Wild horses do get sick, but in the wild, the strongest survives. This means that horses are different, different gens and physiology, but because we can cure horses, they don't die so easily, and we will end up with horses that get sick from rain, but in nature such horses die and the number of horses who can't take the rain will fall, and horses who can take the rain, there will be more of. So horses in the wild has a just as big chance of getting sick, but they won't carry that on, unless they survive. Horses don't needs blankets, if nature can give them food, water and fur. Maybe a couple of trees to hold the wind out. Some horses don't have the fur for it, but even with short fur, a blanket in heavy rain is bad, and we seem to agree on that part. I read about blankets on this site, and found it helpful.

www.equisearch.com/article/to-…

If the horse is trained to do it, it is probably doing to :) Just like when you learn a horse to jump, in the end the horse doesn't need you, because it already knows what to do. Keeping an eye on cows is just another way of teaching the horse a new skill that can develop to a job. Maybe they love it, but we can never really be sure, if they were trained to do so. ;p

If you abuse a horse on daily bases, it will get trauma for sure, and get afraid of humans, or whatever tool they use to hurt the animal. BUT, you can't say the horse never will trust humans again, it is possible to make in normal again, but it can take many years and the trauma will never leave the horse, which means the horse forever will be broken, but it can still trust a good owner, if the owners works with the horse, to make it normal again. 
Rick for example, he has a mustang, which was abused by owners before him, but Mr. T still trust Rick, however Mr. T was a wild horse to begin with, so he's always more uneasy than Ricks other horse Budy, who is domesticated. What I'm trying to say is that a horses background doesn't make the horse, it is what you do with it now. Both Budy and Mr. T didn't have good owners before Rick, but they are both wonderful horses, who trust Rick and finds comfort around him, because he understand horses. 

Shoes are going to irritate in the start, but I think they get used to the shoes after some time. However it only protect their feet on hard surfaces, in grass, sand, dirt, small stones, whatever it might be, they aren't going to protect, they will actually make the surface hard all the time and destroy the horses feet. 

Some humans hate their work, and some humans like them. But is about doing what you like, sadly many horses are forced to do something they don't like, and even if your horse likes jumping, it probably gets excited because it has been in a stall or boring pasture without other horses, that can lead to over-excited horses, and make it look like they enjoy working. Some horses do like working, but the fact that they get forced to do so much else, kind of ruins that point of view. 

Sorry, I meant fencing/enclosure, stupid google translate. In danish it is called a fold, but it also means folding something... However, the horse can have many reason for coming over, some horses like to sat hi, other come for food or attention, maybe it likes it's job, or is bored.
That is something I often see with stallions. They are treated like trash, and live most of their life ALONE. It horrible to know a herd animal is alone most of its life. I wish stallions were treated like the other horses, I don't really know what would happen if you sat geldings and a stallion together, but at least put the stallion next to other horses when on pasture.

Oooh yeah when the horse was doing the piaffe! He put his head in! Because he's carrying himself :D Even though the person wasn't forcing him to XD That's what Pirate is doing in this drawing, since you can see that the reins are loose and not holding him back ^^ 

Those videos are great! The horses are so cute and attentive. 

Yeah, in my drawing I made Pirate look like an andalusian. Andalusian horses can have extremely thick necks:

farm4.staticflickr.com/3285/28…

s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/2…

And I'm sorry about the human, I'm not very good at drawing them XD

I think you should always ride with a helmet. I mean, I ride a bike with a helmet even though I trust myself not to fall or crash. There is a chance that the horse could fall or you could fall or someone could crash into you and I think everyone is just safe with a helmet haha. 

I use bits because the horses I ride aren't mine and I don't ride long enough to develop a solid relationship with the horse. I don't know the people at the place I ride and most of them scare me. I ride at three different stables during different times of the year. One stable, the horses are barely trained and no one speaks english so I just have to work with what the horse is trained to do. In the other stables, the horses I ride aren't my own so I can't choose to train them my own way. Additionally, the owners don't know me or trust me enough to ride without a bit. But there is one horse that I do ride and I just use a hackamore (no bit) and I like riding that horse. 

I draw them just because it's easier than drawing a hackamore and it looks more professional?? 

I can forget that I'm carrying something if I get extremely scared and am forced to run for my life. I think horses can too. 

I've had a horse go into an absolute panic just because he heard echos from another horse walking. He wouldn't stop running until I made him run towards a corner so he was forced to stop. Then I had to get off and we let him run in the pasture. I think the owners of that horse need to spend a lot of time with him at making him more confident and less scared. 

I mean praise like say "good job!" or rub the horse's neck. Or just walk around and let your horse know he did a good job.  I'm not saying that pressure and release is a bad tactic, I think it is much better than just pulling. However, I think if you just divided it between the reins, so only squeeze on one side and then do it to the other, it would be more effective. 

Yup! I agree about the hooves and walking on a hard surface. Well i don't know enough about horse hoof growth and shoes to say much. When I get my own horse, I'll see what my horse will need depending on the horse. 

I think coats are necessary if it is cold, such as if the horse were from a warm climate and then were put in a cold climate. I don't think a horse should be left out in the hard rain, unless it were too busy in the stable or something. 

Hahaha well some horses will just do the job, and some, you can see it in their eyes XD I love it when you can see how much they love it in their eyes. 

That is true, that's what made horse whisperers so famous right hahaha XD That's good to hear that he helped them and that they are happy with him. I think all horses are wonderful, people just have to treat them right and they will be wonderful. I hate it when people just sell their horse because he was too stubborn or "not advanced enough". I mean of course different horses have their limits, but how could someone just sell their horse! 

Well if it makes the horse's feet worse, then why do people use them?

I guess so, I suppose it just depends on the horse and how they are treated. 

Well I don't know much about stallions and other horses. I'm sure if they are treated properly and the other horses as well, then there shouldn't be a reason to separate them. Although I have seen stallions just bully other horses and get into fights and that is why they have to be kept separate. I think a stallion and a gelding would get along fine, if treated properly. Some stallions are given like a friend animal who is like a draft horse with an easy going temper, or a donkey or something. The role of that animal is just to keep the stallion's temper under control.

Excuse me? Who do you think you are? Your some kid behind a screen pretending to actually matter with your idealistic ideas of equestrianisim. You probally dont even ride a horse and you believe you are such an expert by looking up something on the internet. Your a wannabe equestrian whos parents never bought a horse so you act like an expert. Who will she believe, hundreds of years of equine experts and development, or you, some stranger typing some words thinking they will make an impact.

Unless you have a degree in Biology and Biological Mechanics, don't even START to tell us how back curved necks are! You don't know shit about equines or how they opperate so shut up, close your computer, and actually get some fucking education before critisizing ART for chirst sakes! God forbid if you crit RIDERS. NO. Go ahead and go onto DA and attack innocent artists that have done NOTHING wrong.

I would wright an essay on how your statistics are humourously incorrect, but I don't believe you have the mental capacity to process how you are quite misstaken.

You think your a world renounced horse whisper by seeing a few youtube videos, but you have NO solid foundation of equine knowlage!!


Good day~

Yes, I'm a kid behind a screen pretending to actually matter with me idealistic ideas of equestrianisim. I'm neither owner of a horse, and I believe I'm an expert, because I looked something up on the internet. I'm am for sure a wannabe equestrian, whos parents never bought a horse, so I just act like an expert. I also think I'm a world renounced horse whisper, because I saw a few videos on Youtube. Did I also mention mentally ill, smells like shit, has no home, hate gay people, live a lonely life without friends and family, my pets are dead, the whole world hates me, I don't go to school, I support violence, abuse animals, act like a bitch to everybody, have killed thousands of people, have 5 disorders, don't have any feelings, and this isn't the first time I have gotten a comment JUST LIKE THIS ONE. 

What do you think is true, and what do you think is false?

I like the effect that the pixelated squares give this. It doesn't detract from the fact that there is a background, but it draws your eye to focus on the image more closely. :heart:

I love the colors and the horse's movement. Also those squares make the picture look quite special ^^
Wouldn't have guessed that the background was made by blurring a photo at first sight :) colors and scenery are blended so well :la:

That background is unbelievable and the use of lighting makes a really nice, warm image (something I need right now, 'cause it's getting cold out. XD)

No problem! Well, we got snow for one day but it was pretty light and then it melted. It's actually been relatively warm this week, but I think it's about to get colder. What about you?

Oh wow that's so weird! We had like 2 days of "cold" weather (I live in hong kong so it never snows here haha) and then now it's hot again! :'D I was so happy that I was finally going to be able to wear my hoodies and I was so excited, then it's back to t-shirt weather! So weird that both our areas had warm weeks!

Lol, you're lucky. The frigidness of winter can be annoying. I do love the snow, though and it sucks that you only got a couple days. Also, update, we've got  lots of snow now. XD

That's true, it is super clean and the fact that there are no bugs is super nice. I love walking while it's snowing because it's always so silent. :3 Well, hopefully it cools down for you and stays that way! ;)
