Floridians are Wimpy

Floridians are wimpy when it comes to cold weather.  I can say that because I've lived in FL for 22 years so I think I am now a Floridian.  Yesterday the high was mid 40s and the low was 26.

So this was how I dressed to do barn chores.  I am also a tad ashamed to admit I declared it too cold to ride.  I know you northern climate folks are laughing.  It's ok.  I admit it.  I'm a wimp. I am sure I will be regretting that decision next week.  I leave for the show Thursday and rain is on the forecast starting Monday.

This is how wimpy Florida folks dress their body clipped Florida horses.

Anyone remember the Hamburgler???

I hope everyone is unthawing and gets some riding time in this weekend!


  1. No judgement here. 26 degress is cold.

    For what it's worth, 40 degrees in October feels frigid. By March, 40 degrees feels tropical, so it's all relative.

  2. CA wimp here!! I would dress the same lol

  3. CA wimp here!! I would dress the same lol

  4. awww she's adorable in that mask! and i second Shauna - the temps are all relative. we were practically drowsy with the warmth of 45 on sunday... but last fall it would have been unthinkably cold haha
