The mares don't care...Because all of the girls were more than just a touch over-weight(Think tubs of lard), we have been pulling old hay out of the stack yard and unrolling the bales until we get to nice hay. The good stuff then goes in the bale feeder. The diet is working too. Nearly everyone has lost the great gobs of blubber that have plagued them. This might be the first time some of these girls have had anything resembling a girlish figure for many years.
By the time the guys got the waterer installed and we made sure the horses could drink from it okay, the snow was coming down in huge, wet flakes. It looked like the sky was dropping goose down on us. I love these kinds of snows. They are rare in this part of the country. Usually snow is accompanied by frigid temperatures and/or miserable wind.
Chores done, it was time to head back to town...It is definitely time to get my Christmas decorations up...I'm late this year. The weather has been just a bit too nice to really put me in the mood to do it. I'm in the mood now though.;-)
