There is a quote by John Ruskin that goes
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather”.
I think Mr. Ruskin was probably more sanguine about the virtues of Winter than I am, but I do like his positive perspective. Makes me wonder if he thought up those lines while he was with a horse.
I know for me, being around a horse instantly brightens my mood. Having horses in my life makes almost everything more bearable, more vibrant, more hopeful. Even a cold, snowy Winter. It is a beautiful thing, sharing one’s life with a horse.
