My starving horses...

Had to move the round bale feeder today and the horses "helped."

Callie about got the feeder dropped on her head as she is to curious for her own good.

Got some pictures of the horses as I actually had my phone/camera outside with me, figured I would share them And yes, this is the most snow we have had this year. SOOO much better than the 10' + drifts we had in the pasture last winter...

As you can tell they are all starving to death.






















As you can they are super standoffish. I really should work on that!

Have to share a pic of Cassie too... My dumber than a box of rocks dog.

Yep, too skinny, I think they should be re-homed to TX. At least here, they won't have to worry about snow .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

and this is nothing compared to most years! I'm sure they wouldn't complain about living some place warmer though!

Maybe they are not fat, it's just the fluffy winter coats. Cassie looks very smart, much smarter than rocks, well most rocks. I pride myself on not having chubby horses, so during the winter, the fluffy winter coat excuse works very well.

Don't let Phoenix (the near appy) fool you. She literally is as fat as the pictures make her. She isn't all that flush, more plush than fluff lol

Lol She is! I've literally watch her run into things. Sweet, sweet dog, but not all there. She was also diagnosed with wobblers so has some pretty bad balance issues.

For all I make fun of her... She's my baby. She's always with me outside. Always watching. Goes on rides with me, and in all is just a great dog with the kids. She is goofy as all hell though. Love it though!
