With the weather changing so drastically, the horses were a bit chilly during this late February/March cold snap. We had a few days where the nights went into the negative temperatures, and the days didn’t warm up much past 20. We fed our horses a bit more hay, grain, and were careful to make sure they drank enough water before it froze over. The ground is not muddy, rather it has a hard top and the horses are looking a little more clean – now that they cannot roll in the mud :). We are loading up the porches with wood and making sure we have enough to burn to keep inside the farm house and the cape house warm. Alicia will be cutting, loading, and unloading fire wood all day – one of her favorite jobs. Alvin, Simon, and Daisy will be lounging by the fires. We should take a lesson from the wise animals here – snoozing in the sunlight or by the wood stoves are what Mondays are for. Happy March!
