Happy Christmas, Merry New Year and all the rest of that stuff...

...from our family to yours, human and animals alike!

I have been very quiet here.  I do hope all is well with all of my blogger friends.  I have checked out for a bit on here.  It is just the way of the world when you have a family.  Horses are not your world 100% the time though they of course are high priority and get well fed, lots of loves and pampering on a daily basis.  Our life with the horses consists of those things plus cleaning stalls, farrier visits, keeping water buckets thawed, blanketing/unblanketing, a bit of ground work here and there and that is about is. Not much work typing up a post about.  The temperatures are getting artic like tonight for the next two days.  Windchills that are dangerous -25 to -40.  So everything is set in place to do all I can to keep the horses as warm and protected form it as possible.  Stalls clean bedded, plenty of hay, plenty of thawed water available and barn as insulated as possible.  They should be happy and content in their stalls oblivious of how bad it really is out there.  I am deeply concerned for horses that are not as lucky and will be left out and exposed to this weather coming.  Like seriously worried and wish there was something I could do :(.  But there isn't and I can just hope for the best.  Stay warm and safe all!  Maybe getting home bound for a few days I can come up with a few more posts.

  2. I totally get balancing life with horses and family, especially with three kids!

    I keep hoping it won't get as cold as they say it is going to but all our horses are bundled up in their stalls as well.

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
