It's Soooooo Cold Outside!
Winter is finally here for us in southwest Michigan. The sub-zero temps and wind chills don’t bother me much, actually I’ve looked forward to having a couple of these days -when I’m not tempted to ride or work horses. Still, chores take more time . . . shuffling horses so everyone gets some time outside, keeping the run-in doors dug out, and monitoring water pails. Fortunately, we have hot water in the barn, which we add to our horses’ pails every couple of hours. It keeps our pails from freezing and keeps our horse drinking – something that’s very important in the winter so horses don’t colic.
