Excuse Me...

... but THIS has been happening lately. Hooves have been trimmed. Tails have been brushed out & rebraided. Blankets have been hung over a wall while we enjoy a spate of mild weather.
There has been much rolling in snow & very much happy snorting.
The horses have been doing the same.

  1. Ha! Are you making snow angels? My guys were happy to get a roll in after their blankets came off too.

    1. Snow Angels, mostly because the snow is too dry to make snowmen.

  2. We had about an inch of snow here in South Carolina last week. It was pretty. The temperatures were in the low 30's (fahrenheit) so it actually lasted a couple days. Stay warm!

    1. Snow is beautiful, & I imagine you enjoyed the novelty! This morning it is -15* again (5*F) but still sunny, so I'm hopeful that the worst of the winter is over. Crossing my fingers!

  3. Beautiful photo! I love snow, but ours has largely melted and turned to ice a long time ago. I really don’t like ice. Enjoy your lull!

    1. Ice sucks the big one, totally agree. Last week there was a wet snow that made all the highways skating rinks; I was glad not to have to go anywhere.

    1. Hmmm, I'll see what I can do. Rain is what I knew winter to be when I lived on the west coast, but it rarely froze there - will it all turn to ice on the east side?

    1. I know from living on the coast that, just because there isn't snow, doesn't mean it isn't miserable sometimes. Wishing you sunshine.

    1. Argh... yes, it's a little nippy this morning & going to check the forecast for whether blankets need to be going back on. Stalls are all ready, just need to hang water pails. Cows seem pretty much content; on cold days they lay together in their shelters (probably talking smack about the horses) & on sunny days they lay around out beside their bale (still smack talking, no doubt).

  7. The freeing of the layers, when it feels just like Spring and gives you a little spring!! Soak it up, roll in it whatever ~ enjoy!!

    1. I'm down to wearing only one pair of gloves!
      As Vickie pointed out, it will probably get colder again, but I'm hoping the worst is over, because I'm pretty done with those -35* days.
