Well, Here Comes The Real Winter Blast!


Well, it started with round 1 last night and I woke to 5 inches of snow to shovel down the stairs. A Border Collie chasing the snow I was attempting to shovel and turning the corner to see these normal "feed me" antics!


After they ate their pelleted grain and I threw the hay in front of their barn so that they may have a little protection, it was total chaos as the horse eating wind noises caused the dopes to flee several times in between bites.................


They made several attempts and this is what the dipsticks did. One grab at hay and a spooky bolt in different directions.

Both of them.........dorks!

An eventual run around the arena and paddock..............I finally decided that perhaps this was not going to work, so I moved the hay out in the middle, wind and all to save them from themselves................ugh!

Horses can be real numpties, cant they?

We're about to get hit with "the big storm" here in Rochester tonight.

Cute pictures. We've got the same thing going on here with ice storms just to mix it up a little in between the snow. It's just ducky.

Love your pictures. So funny to see how the horses react to things, isn't it?? We got a lot of snow, too here in Northwest Indiana -- I think about a foot! Makes taking care of animals challenging....
