Horse racing content on Medium

Starting this year, horse racing content will be posted (or re-posted) on Medium. You can see my profile on Medium here--links to my posts can be found on that page.

I will continue to post on this blog, but the content will mainly be Limerick-related.

Winter at the barn

A friend at the barn took the three photos below. One horse's blanket is hanging off him by a strap and the herd--riled up by the flapping, dragging thing--is running around with this horse. And is Limerick among them?

No, she thinks they're all fools!

The Super Bowl Blizzard of 2015 dumped over 19 inches of snow in the area January 31 through February 2 (thereby becoming the fifth heaviest snowfall in Chicago history). The worst of the blizzard was the night of the 31st but of course, that didn't stop me from going to the barn. My husband went with me and my VW Rabbit got us there safely.

Heavy snow drifts at the barn the evening of January 31. This area had just been plowed four hours prior!
