|Horse Snow Sculpture|
If you remember my last post I said I was glad to be home from my time in Florida. Well, as of today I’ve changed my mind! It is snowing and blowing here. The forecast was for about 28 inches of snow with high winds. A real blizzard that could break the record set in 1941. Great, just what I’d hoped for, setting a new record for snow. We’ve since been downgraded to about 16 inches so I guess if I was an optimist that would be a plus…
This morning the plan was to let the horses relax in the barn for a little longer than they’re used to. They usually are out and about by 7 a.m. So there was time to shovel around the barn doors and fill the hay nets before they were turned out. You would think they would appreciate not being turned out in this nasty weather, but they WERE NOT. When the barn doors were finally opened their opinionated selves greeted their servant with pawing, squawking and general protests about not being outside yet. Or fed. Apparently, service this morning wasn't up to their high standards. They had taken everything off their doors they could get their mouths on and flung halters, lead ropes and whatnot into the aisle. I’m sure they will want to come in early after getting a dose of this winter storm, which is fine. We live to serve.
