Well, it's done. I wimped out and put the horse away today.
Washed it thoroughly, cleaned the chain with kerosene and
lubed it, changed the oil and filter. Put Stabil in the gas tank
and filled it up. Took one last ride and put the blanket on.
I'll be at the monastery for the next few weeks, cut off
from the world, to repent of the sin of not riding all winter...
Maybe I'll get the sleeping bag out and sleep next to it.....
