The weather here is the same freezing cold then rain then freezing cold again. Goes something like:-40C,8C,-30C, all in the same week! Such fun! Really plays out bad for the footing for the horses. I'm already tired of winter. Can feel the hot February sun now on those cold, clear days at least. Here's hoping the groundhog is right after all!

Rosie - did you acquire a third horse? I must have missed that in your previous posts.

Paintlover - I had nooo idea what son's teacher was referring to in her blog when she mentioned the furry weather forecasters! Then I woke up to CBC getting very excited about Groundhogs hee hee hee

Chevaux - the two boys have Arthur the donkey to be their pasture companion. He's a big fluffy ball of love.

Sitting waiting for the vet to arrive to geld Arthur. Good to see that vets are as prompt here as they were in the UK...... Arthur has finally got the hang of the slow-feed haynet and Ukon and Riley are enjoying the unexpected opportunity to stuff themselves from theirs.

I think it's minus 11 but the air is very still and I'm as warm as toast in my snow suit.

That is universal Rosie, the first class all vets take is on how to keep their clients waiting! :) I'm sure for equine vets, its just to allow people time to catch the horse as we all know they can smell a vet 10 miles away and wont want to be caught :)

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

What animal would want to be caught when it's about to have it's Crown Jewels removed...?

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Poor Arthur, no longer the Stud of Alberta..

Before the vet arrived


After the vet had left, still feeling VERY hungover from the anaesthetic:
