Happy Spring 2021

Posted in Weather at 9:31 pm by Thomas

I know its the last day of February so most may think I am a little early but we have received more than 5 inches of rain today, the temperature is 60 and there is a Thunderstorm occurring as I write this with vivid lighting. Tomorrow is March 1st which is considered the start of Meteorological Spring. The grass has already started to respond to this warmer weather and the nitrogen that was put down by last week’s snowstorm.

Certainly we could do without so much rain this time of year, but certainly enjoying the warmer weather already. The forecast for next week looks very nice with lots of sunny weather and nice temperatures.

Everyone be safe as Spring Weather can be as dangerous as Winter Weather and we will just keep moving forward to better riding weather.

Hot Summer Updates 2012

We hope everyone is staying cool and safe, seems we maybe paying for our mild Winter with a hot-dry Summer.  Thankfully hay production was well advanced in Kentucky by our Spring weather so hay supplies should hold up.  The hope now for our pastures will rest in a tropical system coming up through Texas to provide a significant rain event through the Central U.S.

On another hot topic, the Hungarian Federation has withdrawn the Budapest bid for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games stating their support for neighboring Vienna Austria’s bid.  This leaves four(4) competing sites, Rabat (MAR); Bromont (CAN); Vienna (AUT) and Wellington (USA).  We will start our countdown for the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games after the Olympics.
