Who's Ready?

Who is ready for the snow to fly? NOT ME!!!!!!! Tromping through the snow with water in hand. Trying to get the hay back there. Shoveling the grass to get to the horses. The mess of the paddock. Making sure the girls are warm. Cracking the ice to let the girls drink. Oh I could go on and on. Not looking forward to that. Some day I will have all these things figured out and not have any problems with any weather situation. Anybody getting sick yet? People not horses. Hopefully not horses. Oh boy, what fun!

Me either , we just got Rocky and last week my friend and I went on our first trail ride where he did good, then yesterday trailered him to some trails and he did awesome. Now hunting season starts today then snow .
But, at least I board and don't have all the work. 2 years ago we lived in the UP of Michigan and had 300 inches of snow and I was pulling buckets of water out of a creek and hauling it on sleds to my the horse pasture.

Oh no, not me. It's pretty and all, but you can keep it!

Oh God, don't remind me.
This'll be our first winter at our little farmette. The only thing I'm looking forward to is riding in the snow. I've always wanted to try it, but never had the chance at the boarding stable because for whatever reason, there was always a solid sheet of ice under the snow and it was way too dangerous. Plus most of the barn doors were frozen shut. We get really nasty winters here, and I'm told that it gets even colder out here in the country. I want to try and work my horses throughout the winter so they're not all out of shape in the spring. I might change my mind once the first blizzard hits, though.

We've had frost on the ground for about a month now. The prospect of getting out of my nice, cozy bed to go out and feed horses is getting less and less attractive every day. :(

We had 6 inches on Saturday.

36 degrees now - so melting.

Thankfully it wasn't rain. It's a heavy, wet snow. Would of been way more rain than we want at this time of year.

I've noticed up north people hate snow so much, in the southern part we always love snow cause we rarely get any.

We had good snow last year. First time I remember our snow being so bad. The frost is sticking in the morning already, I'm getting ready to start looking like a ninja again.

LOL. Fortunately, I don't have to resort to hauling water in the winter time unless I forget to drain the hose. We have a freeze-proof faucet and so long as I drain all the water out of the hose after watering the horses, it's fine the next day. Though I do get a little sick of having to carry the axe around to chop up the ice. I am always afraid that I am going to chop a hole in the side of the tank. As for snow, we very seldom see any down here and when we do, it only lasts a couple of days before it's melted. I would have rathered we didn't get that 3 inches of rain the other night though, it made everything all soupy and slick.
