Snow days can be great fun, unless you really need to get to work. Then they are a nightmare. Not all of us have four-wheel drive snow vehicles. So what do you do if your rear-wheel drive truck always gets stuck in the snow? For Gabby Lagdon of Burlington, North Carolina the answer was simple:
Take the horse, of course!
In a story on WFMY News 2, Lagdon said, “What better way to get to work than to ride my horse? Get him out, get him a little bit of exercise, and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the way. You can't predict the weather, so you might as well just go with it."
For her, that meant a seven mile ride to work on her horse, Rascal. She got lots of smiles and thumbs up on her way, as she brightened the day of those braving the aftermath of Winter Storm Jonas in their cars. Her only problem was that she had to leave work before dark, because her horse doesn’t have headlights, she told WFMY News 2.

Personally, I think this is awesome – I’d love to ride a horse to work every day (or, in my case, drive my mini!). What about you? Do you wish sometimes we could go back a bit and do more things via horseback? Share your thoughts in the comments!
