Koolio, thanks for the response. Yes, we have pretty wet winters here. A lot of humidity in the air.....bone chillin' kind of temps. It may only be in the thirties, but is a chilled 30. Does that make sense? My uncle who now resides in MT absolutely hates coming back here bc of the humidity levels. He says it gets into his bones and allergies! I actually prefers when it snows, it's not as 'cold'.
It's been raining here for two days now and my pasture is about shot. Bad drainage leads to soupy, mucky areas.
. Not good for a horse with feet issues.
Talked to mom to see of she noticed where they were in the morning when she went out to feed...meaning stalls or pasture. Trying to figure out if they would loose a lot of 'outside' time. I like them moving around, but I also need healthy feet. She says often they are in their stalls waiting or even laying down. So we will see. If I notice them stocking up, then I'll change what I am doing.
I think I've only blanketed for cold once, and it was when I saw my TB literally shivering. So I think I will play it out like that again. Both of mine have grown nice and wholly.....a sign of coldness to come!
Koolio, the only time I can ride at night is if I leave work @3:15. It's getting dark here around 5:00 :(. I guess it's better than nothing....
when does it dark in your neck of the woods?
TGIF all! Thanksgiving break is almost here!!!!
. I will survive. Actually I'm pumped. We are reading the story Stone Soup. With thanksgiving soon, we are going to all bring in an ingredient and make stone soup!!
. Kids are excited, and I needed something fun too! Too much stress about the dang test!
Have a good day!
