Say it's not... snow!

October 9th, and I drove home in a snowstorm. Bleh!

By the time i got home and changed and we headed do the evening critter check, it had just started to stick to the road edges.

After we counted noses, grained one batch of sheep and verfied that all the waterers were still operational, we went on over to see about Rufus.

Rufus and his bucket
His abscess is much better, and I think this was probably his last round in hot water and Epsom salts.

Belly rubbin's

This morning we happily hadn't gotten as much snow as they predicted, but it was still plenty cool at only 23'.

The ponies were happy to see us, and I was happy to see that the woolly winter coats they're sporting.

Oh brrrr! I don't know how you stand the cold! 23? brrrrr

Crazy how the ponies went from being sleek to puffy seemingly overnight. I know ours don't have a whole lot of hair yet and this cold snap sure required pouring the hay to them so they could keep warm.

Yikes, that's cold! I'm dreading the 40's forecast in our area this weekend...not sure I could tolerate the 20's! Your horses are looking good - and glad to hear Rufus' foot is healing. Stay warm!!
