6 December 2007

Once again I am behind on everything. In typical Indiana fashion we have gone from heat to cold in record time again. We had 4-5 inches of snow yesterday and I put the horses out which they really enjoyed. I had managed with the help of my helper to get the stables all sorted out on Tuesday so everything was clean and dry. Here are some of the mares out in the field yesterday.

I put the 3 stud colts out too in their new enclosure, and here is a pic of Dream breathing steam and of him and Blaze playing in the snow also shot yesterday.

We woke up to 4F (for those of you in celcius, that is about -12C) this morning!!!! No wind thank heavens and beautiful blue skies and sunshine but just too cold to be out there. It is lunch time now and it is about 24F right now, expecting a high of 32 (right at freezing), but I havent been able to bring myself to do anything other than feed the horses and come back in because even with two layers of gloves my fingers are freezing by the time I get back in. I so want to get some pics in the snow with the lovely light but may wait until this afternoon sometime first. We are expecting another 3-4 inches or thereabouts tonight but it is not going to be as cold (when I say not so cold, I mean just below freezing but not like this morning).

I started with a sore throat yesterday and it is still feeling blaaah so I am not a happy camper today. Thought I would get this in early. I am hoping to have some pics of Taxes in the snow later, the last time it snowed was the day he was born and then it was wet slushy snow that turned into mud before he even got his first outing.

I am going to end for now. If I do get more I will post again later. (((Hugs)))

I always think it is amazing how animals, dogs, cats, horses, pigs, anything, likes to see, feel, taste, and play in something like snow. It gets old though and then they welcome the shelter of a barn or stall or somewhere it is warmer. These are very nice photographs.

You are a kind of wonder woman to get out there and do all of this. And with a herd, it never ends.

Have a nice day, week, and the rest of the month. You and your hubby are deserving of a mini vacation to somewhere. I wish I had the power to give it to you both and the horses too.

I love pictures of your horses in the snow. They always look so good.

Hope you get to feeling better.

Take care

They look like they are really enjoying that snow. It looks so pretty when it is fresh and clean. But I get cold just looking. Glad it's you and not me.
