BURRRRRR! Winter has arrived!

The high temp today was -3*, add in a biting wind we are talking about -20*ish.. Damn cold!

You'd think this kind of weather would keep my kid indoors right? Nope. Soon as we got home from visiting Krissy at the library (twice in one week I've seen that gal!) she had to drag out a few horses. Today's big idea was to pony Jenny with Scotch. You can just barely see the blue of her coat through the willow and maple branches.

Scotchie was an angle and Jenny apparently decided to try kicking Shasta and somehow ended up tugging Chyann off Scotch. And what was I doing? Watering the cows - freezing my arse off!


Can't have a day without horses you know, regardless of the weather. Wish I had a horse at her age.

Anyhow, I had a nasty surprise yesterday. I put the dogs out on my break, did a little laundry and sweeping, then called the dogs back in. Wasn't really paying much attention to them.. Came back down for lunch and see something odd on my couch. Turn on the light and discover one of those rotten dogs had brought in a frozen chunk of horse shit to gnaw on while I wasn't looking! OH WHAT A MESS! Good thing it was on my old couch and I can easily strip off the covers and wash.

I'll be watching those gal's a little closer from now on....

I waved hello as I drove by your house this afternoon! It certainly was cold today.

I'm sorry, but that is soooo funny. I read it out loud to my hubby and he burst out laughing too.

Bad Dog! My stupid dog eats her own frozen poop - we have to watch her like a hawk when she's outside and yell at her when she stops to pick something up. Why are dogs so gross....and then so cute a few minutes later!
