The horse is more festive than the house as you can see. We've been bad this year, we don't even have a Christmas tree:-x But we spend the Holidays at the parents' houses so I don't really see a need for a tree. Last week it was in the high 60's and even hit 70 degrees:-o But today it went down into the 40's and is steadily going down into the teens. I hope it's not too much of a shock to the ponies. We turned their night feed into warm mashes and added some electrolytes. And of course blanketed them. After dinner I gave Lester a bucket of warm water which he quickly drank so he should be well hydrated. He's always loved warm water on cold nights. When Lester lived in my parent's backyard he always made me a little mad when I would carry 2 steaming buckets of hot water out to him to leave with him for the night and he would drink them so far down I had to go back to the house and get more and it was no easy task. I had to But of course I was happy to see him drink.
I hopped on him again yesterday and we walked around the dog pasture with Laura and Polo. My legs are sore again and it feels good.
I know you Canucks are laughing at my title saying I have no idea what "frightful" weather is:-) but I am jealous of your white Christmas!
