Freezing!!!

It is freezing here! LOL I believe it got up to -3 today....with windchills it was -19. Supposed to get another 2-4in of snow on top of the 2in we got last night, temps are supposed to drop quite drastically tonight, with windchill they're calling for -35. :(

Squishy continues to do really well despite the cold, he was even "helping" me take off Rodeo's blanket today as the sun came out. He was literally in my face the entire time I was undoing Rodeo's blanket, as I walked to the other side of Rodeo, Squishy was right there. Honestly, I thought Rodeo was one of the friendliest, "helpful" horses there were, well Squishy has completely outdone Rodeo! LOL

With that being said, he is my daughter's pony, but I am absolutely in love with the littler s**t! As devastating as it was leaving Ace behind in WV, Squishy has taken his place and then some. To be honest, Ace's personality was pretty "blah" so to speak, and if he became overwhelmed over something, might as well just give up and go home as when he got to that point there was nothing else to be done for the day.

Here are some pics of Squishy and Rodeo playing in the morning sunshine :) With the temps, not doing a whole lot with Squishy besides brushing the snow off his back with my frozen hands and picking ice out of his little hooves, he seems to enjoy the attention :)

Another freezing day! The high is I believe -2. Temps got to -16 last night and with wind chill was reported as -35. Rodeo's blanket wouldnt stop shifting, well I ended up pulling too hard to get it shifted back and it tore LOL. Guess thats what happens when you only pay $30 for a medium weight blanket.

We ended up getting some hay from the round bale and spreading it in the run in and brought some up to the garage soon to be barn as well. This morning they were both in the garage! Neither seem cold so thats a relief and they are drinking as they usually do so thats another relief! Not supposed to get above 0 until Thursday but Squishy and Rodeo are doing super! Squishy is up your butt from the second he sees you outside! LOL Hes like having another kid literally!

I broke down, well I got bored, he now has his own Instagram...squishytherescuepony LOL

Squishy is so adorable. I love how friendly he is.
The pictures of him & Rodeo omg how cute!!!!! Looks like they are giving each other kisses lol so cute!!
I don't blame you for falling for him, look at him, who wouldn't?!!!

I spent $30 on my mare's lightweight sheet, and it tore in the first week. She still wears it though because it's only shredded a little on the butt. But I did splurge on the heavy blanket. Is his salvageable I hope! LOL

OMG I need to follow his Instagram. I have to! I need daily cuteness!

I have an Instagram for my guinea pigs...you can totally judge me lol.

Ride more, worry less.

This latest picture just melts my heart.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Im def going to invest in a decent blanket for next winter! I think his is salvageable so thats a plus! That is awesome you have an IG for your guinea pigs! I had one a few years back, then got another and they didnt get along but OMG they were so much fun!! Whats their IG name?! Id love to follow them! LOL

@Walkamile ...thank you! They are best of friends already! Dont think theyll be much separating them but since my daughter will be riding with me once Squishy's old enough I dont think itll be too big of a deal.

-3 with a real feel of -20 as the high today. Despite Rodeo appearing cold a few nights ago, he hasnt seemed cold a second since. Squishy continues to do great! Little guy followed my husband to get firewood in the shed this morning, walked right up the ramp into the shed with him LOL Hes just so nosey!

I was pleasantly surprised to find them in the bottom of the pasture grazing when I went out to give them dinner, they came walking up the hill, once to the top, they played, trotting, gallopng, bucking, tossing their heads, throwing their legs out all sorts of directions.

Despite how good they are doing with these freezing temps, Im ready for it to warm up a bit so I can actually play with Squishy a bit more!

Pics from today!

I know I am always fawning over Squishy, and rightfully so, but your Rodeo is such a handsome guy! I really love his build. Thanks for the photos!

Thank you! He is amazing, I cant say enough good things about him, I just couldnt be happier with him to be honest! He's came and matured so much, was such an ugly little guy when I bought him 8yrs ago! LOL
