This was also Atticus's first snow EVER so he was pretty thrilled (once he got over the initial shock).
Lacey and Hazel were not very impressed (Hazel thought it was too cold, Lacey thought it was too slippery) but they did eventually come out of the shed.
I was a little worried about how Lacey's eyes would handle it but put a flymask on her and I gave her a good dose of yucca+devils claw in the morning, along with her usual anti-inflammatories, and she seems to have done fine. So yay that!
So prepare to laugh, those of you from more snowy climes. For me, this was so much snow! hahaha
The singular bummer is that it never really got very cold so it's all pretty much melted already.
Hopefully though this is a sign that we might get more snow this season (I love snow) because usually we don't see sticking snow until late January. This time, we didn't see freezing temperatures until last Saturday (usually happens in October/November) and then BAM, we got snow!
Fingers crossed! haha
At least now all the no-see-ums and mosquitoes should be dead! They were getting troublesome.
"Um, snow? I refuse to acknowledge it. NASTY stuff."
"What isssss this stuff??????!"
"OHMIGOSH PANIC. It's cold AND wet AND it TOUCHED me!!!"
"Errrr, yeah. Just give us more hay and we'll hang out here, with our buddy Muck Bucket, until the snow melts. You don't mind cleaning this stall around us, right?"
[Hazel and Lacey have really been developing a friendship over the last few weeks - it's adorable, they're both such sassy ladies]
"Well, I'm standing in it but I'm still not too sure how I feel...."
And then he decided that it was his brand new playmate. Silly kid!
Snow Explorer Atticus!
"HAZEL! Let's PLAY!!!"
His instigation was met with a headbutt that planted him squarely in the snow. Soooo he came back to me because apparently I'm his adventure buddy? Hahahaha
Lacey still wasn't too sure about how she felt. It was covering HER GRASS!
Hazel, still wanting no part in this snow thing.
"I'm only here because I'm being forced."
Thanks for looking! :)
I hope you all are having a lovely day!
