Saddle up and let's ride down the trail of tales or tails.

On cold days we stay in if possible. The ‘boys’ are in direct line with the heater. Notice – Taz doesn’t want his picture taken. Behind him, Drifter has staked out ‘his’ chair.

These were outside in the box on the ATV. The one on the left was frozen and the one on the right wasn’t. 

I had to psych myself up to go out to do chores. By the time I did the sun had come out and it looks like Midnight found a warm spot for a nap.

And, since digesting food keeps them warm the rest of the ponies were chowing down ….

Yup – there was ice again. Butch was glad to see me.

I love this shovel. Instead of water running down my arms it drains out. The ice was fairly thin when I tackled it however; I think tomorrow morning will be a different story since it was freezing over an hour after I lifted it out of the tanks. Tiffany made sure all the tanks were topped off yesterday and that makes a difference in the first freeze.
  Some of the horses will make their own sippy holes during the day. Teefa is not one of them. Notice, she started to drink even before I took the ice out.
Are you bringing more food? You don’t want us to freeze or starve do you?
In case you need to know mittens are really warm. If you have spare time it is possible to tie hay string into a knot. It is possible to open and close gate snaps but be prepared to pull mitten out of snap. Warmth or speed?
