Once again the morning started off sunny (and frigid....single digits).
Made sure the girls had plenty of extra hay to keep them warm.
Between us, Gary and I shoveled the driveway (got about 3 inches of snow last night with a little drifting).
When I got in from chores I made another batch of corn chowder...guess the entire winter is going to be calling for soup.
You guessed it....Gary is still painting.
My buddies were snoozing all over the place.
This afternoon I made an effort to get some steamy shots from the side porch, but only had moderate success.
It was pretty grey when I went out to do chores, but not totally dark until after 5:40. That is an improvement.
I don't know about all my horse buddies out there, but I feed soaked beet pulp every meal. When I mix it with their grain and it's this cold I can't get the buckets cleaned out and bring them into the house for a good scrubbing. This sled is a big help to me as it is much easier to cart 4 gallons of hot water to the barn for their water buckets. During the day there is a heater in the water trough. The frigid temperatures demand some extra work.
Phoebe and Gucci lasted outside through chores, spending most of that time in the hay loft.
Very simple dinner.
A Saint Tim Salad with oranges, banana and craisins....crumbly blue too.
The corn chowder was delish.
