Winter slumber

Welcome to the frozen, arctic wasteland that the barnyard has become. We have seen -33 degrees f. this week. Then we were blessed with 5 inches of snow. Will this winter ever end? Sometimes it doesn’t seem like it. C’mon spring!

So, obviously with the cold and the snow we are feeding. Good hay. And a lot of it. When we drive into the pasture with the hay truck we are welcomed. Here is Bandit, Clovis (behind) and Dime a Dozen coming up with his blanket butt in the rear.

Everyone came right up and got in the chow line. I am driving. Because I am a wimp like that. The Western Original is out in the cold. Doing the manual labor. I like it like that.

She has me worried. Is she sick? They are always hungry!

There she stands. She can’t just be sleeping. The horse survival instincts are way too honed to sneak up on a slumbering equine. Right?

Suddenly - pop! Up comes the head. (I think she only has one eye open.)
