Then Tuesday I got up and they said high of -1!!! Wow so I waited and waited and got everything I needed done and finally right after lunch I went out and got Jess and away we went. I had no big intentions just wanted to ride down the road and maybe if still early enough go into the field on the way home but there was a deep spot on the way to the gate so wasn't sure about that.
But about 1/4 mile out I was taking pictures and thinkin it sure was nice out and first time I ever got to ride at Christmas and Jessie kinda wandered into the ditch, snow was up to her knees and no never thought twice about it that's not too bad. Then she took another step in and all the sudden it was almost up to my saddle! Ooops little too deep. She tried to lunge and about as close to a buck as she could get just to get out. We were almost to the other side and she turned and come back. I had no real control, I ended up behind the saddle, lol. She kept trying to lunge forward and was not getting anywhere and I knew if she did get free she would left me behind and run home. So I kept a hold of the reins so she couldn't lunge forward and she stopped and I got off and stood on the road and then she got out.
