A different kind of a sunrise this morning. Last night the temperature actually went up for awhile, then we had freezing rain and it ended up snowing. I woke up a 5am and a semi was driving about 10 miles per hour down the road in front of the farm...had to be glare ice. By the time I got up for good, it looked like this.
With the wind, we were in the single digits and I was not sure if I was going to leave the girls out or put them back in. I filled up 4 jugs with hot water, the beet pulp was ready, grabbed some dry cat food, some carrots....and headed out to the barn.
It did not feel quite as bad as I expected, so the girls stayed out and we had a little sun off and on during the rest of the day.
I will never understand why they do not want to go in the indoor when the weather is like this.
They have free access every single day.
By 10:15 the roads were in much better shape and I went down to Agape.
On Monday I did 20 minutes on the bike/15 minutes on the elliptical/10 minutes on the treadmill.
Today I did 25 minutes on the bike/ 11 minutes on the elliptical/10 minutes on the treadmill. Just not motivated to get back up to 20 on the elliptical....I think it's mental!
When I got back to the farm I made a pot of sauce with meatballs.
A perfect day for it.
At 3:30 Ben (our farrier) arrived to trim the horses feet.
Turned the girls back out at 4:30 and ended up putting them in their stalls while Karen's horses were done.
Needless to say, it was a good day for a fire.
Dinner was delish.
