I was able to work from home Thursday, which is rare, so I was very happy I didn't have to drive in that weather. I had also been meaning to take a Friday off to use up some leave, so I did that this past week, as the roads were nasty and I thought I'd save myself the hassle. I love it when I'm home during the day and I can glance out and check on the horses. They were playing and running around at one point and I only managed to get two shots before my camera battery died. D'oh!
I'm fairly lucky here with the horses in a big storm. I have lots of hay at hand and the power rarely goes out, so I don't have to worry about water too much either.
He does NOT like being in a stall for long, so I usually have to lure him in with grain. Yes, I could get his halter/lead line, but that seems like a lot of work! lol
I left them in to dry off for a few hours before chucking them back out in the elements. When I first had horses at home again, I was hesitant to put them out in bad weather. After seeing Spencer stand in freezing rain and snow over the years, I realize they tolerate a lot more than we think.
They have shelter and lots of hay, so most of the time they are fine! Although Fred is going through blankets like crazy - he has now wrecked three! OMG horse. Luckily they were all cheaper or ones that I bought used, so I'll have a big pile to see if I can get them repaired or maybe I'll just chuck them. I'll be saving up for a nicer set for him for next year - so far I'm looking at Schneiders, Dover or SmartPak with their warranties.
