The break out at least once through the winter, which they did back in Jan. so hopefully now they won't be visiting all the neighbors....

My horses are the joy in my life.....

Hi, GoulaisGirl! I'm not that far from you -- near Sudbury. For the horseforum and Northern Ontario that's pretty close. :) Our snow here is deteriorating quickly. You'll be not far behind! But you get the lake effect; lucky you.

BTW, they can't just walk out unless the snow is well packed on both sides of the fence. They'd get bound up in the deep snow. But, we had a good one here. My hubby decided when he plowed once, to just plow up to the fence, instead of opening the gate and going beyond as usual. We ended up with a four foot snowbank with the fence buried in the top of it! Yikes. I had to shovel that out and told MDH no more of that please :)

I am in South Westen Saskatchewan and it is bad here too, roads are ice and the tractor had to come into the cows pens because the snow was as high as the 10-12 ft or higher fence, and the heifers could walk right over it! It isn't bad in the horses pen... only about 5-6 feet at places... but thats Canada for you!

well were used to it but it still sucks. We know how to work around it

if we have another winter like a few years ago where it was cold til June I am going to be one unhappy camper. However today in Rapid City SD (a 5 hour drive from me) it's darn near 70 degrees Fahrenheit today. I am so jealous.
