Is it summer yet?

Here's Beau in almost 3' of snow left by the blizzard we had yesterday.

He escaped while I was cleaning stalls and moseyed on outside, he did one lap in the barnyard and then went right back into his stall. He LOVES snow, but apparently this is too much for him

LOL We haven't had snow in a while, but have had a ton of rain, so the horses are in muck up to their fetlocks...I hate going out in it, when it's bad enough to pull off my Muck boots! LOLLOL
But suns coming out now...maybe we'll dry out!

It's the little things that drive me wild...

OMG! Suddenly our 18 inches doesn't seem so bad...it's drifted to 4 feet in spots, but that looks SOLID! LOL! My horses would go INSANE if I tried to keep them in stalls more than a couple hours...

The sun's out here, but it's still only 25* so the snow's not going anywhere :(

The official total at Baltimore Washington Int'l Airport (which is 8 mi. From here) is 32"... the old record was 28" back in 1922. And this is our second blizzard this winter. And we're supposed to get another foot on Tuesday night! Figures that we have the worse winter in decades the first year the horses are here

awh what a cutie! I love seeing horses in the snow, it seems like they're wild horses running across the tundra. (I know i'm such a nerd!) lol

Well we got two feet here, but my little girl thinks its a monster!
Lol she's such a girly girl
