January got off to a bit of a rocky start...we had a family issue that took up some extra time. Between that and work being very busy, I haven't had a chance for much else. The past three weeks has had me running to work and then running home to the barn to throw hay and check water, but not much else.
Things are starting to look up a bit now as the days will be juuuussssst long enough for a bit of daylight after work. I'm looking forward to taking a bit more time out at the barn and just hanging out with the horses while they eat their hay. I'm also hoping to start working Fred a bit, just easy in-hand stuff when the weather allows.

Now we are on to straight snow, which is much, much better, imho. We had a few inches last weekend and another few inches this weekend. Fred has been busy wrecking his current blanket, which is always fun. Somehow he ripped apart the neck cover on his blanket and I don't think I'll be able to salvage it.
|Pre-blanket destruction: these two always look like they are up to something.|
One of the many reasons I love having the horses at home is being able to fix issues right away. Exhibit A: Hubby looks out the window and tells me that Fred is "walking funny" and I'd better go check him. (his description).
So, I went out to find the back end of the blanket all twisted and flipped up. One of the stretchy leg straps was down below his hock, causing him to "walk funny". lol *sigh*
|Nice job, Fred!|
Not much else is going on here for the moment, so I'm off to shop online for another blanket for Fred!
