So , I have said a few times , we needed more snow. and last night ...
we got it , along with blowing snow , and a serious drop in temp
I had commented too, that a little cooler would be better, the warmish season seems to make colds and flus more prevalent and Quinn's wound is much harder to keep clean with the chronic melting . Guess I needed to be clearer about how much colder! We have gone from soup to nuts !
above zero last week to -21C dropping to as low as -37C over the next week . Too lazy to do the conversion right now , but suffice to say -40 C is the same as -40 Fahrenheit!
the horses are fine, lots of feed , some straw (if it didn't blow away ) and fresh water
Snow is staying on their backs , is a good sign
took fresh bedding to Quinn and Comet (Or rather Quinn , who has claimed this bale as his!)
"Hey hey ! What about meee?"
The ladies in waiting too are holding their own in this cold snap.
Guess it is just me and Skeeter who are unhappy.
By the way , note to all , bored Border collie Blue heeler crosses are maniacal! Add a big old golden retriever to a housebound Skeeter , and they will rearrange your furniture!
Stay warm and safe!
