A few weeks ago Karen was given 7 bales of straw that were leftover from Halloween decorations and we spread them over the front paddock so when it gets wet and freezes there is some good texture for the horses to walk on. It was really a great move and has worked well.
Around 30 this morning, but no wind.
I had to go to Rochester for a mammogram and drove past Moon's new barn. There she was in her own pasture with no blanket (she's had one on all winter) and her grazing muzzle. I don't know why I am so protective of her when she is not here....time to let go.
Fortunately, all went well at the clinic and I was on my way home by 2:15. By then, the sun was in full bloom!
Chores at 5. It sure is staying light longer.
Dinner was simple. A Saint Tim Salad and
homemade chicken and rice soup, which I made this morning.
Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we could be back in the single digits. Ugh!
Time to go out by the fire.
