Sure, the weather can get a tad tiresome with the misty rain and fog, but it's never very cold. However, I must say that my first winter here was a very cold one.

    Hello, Tehachapi! My name is Lilliput Nobleman (don't ask how I got tagged with that) but everyone calls me Louie. I'm new in town, having flown into Los Angeles airport from a farm in Ireland on Christmas Eve 2022. I spent a few months at the Symphony Dressage training facility in Bear Valley Springs for some sort of evaluation.
