Today, Lexington had it's first real snowfall. This is nothing like what I am used to in northern Michigan. It'll be cloudy and snowy then the next day it'll be sunny and the snow will go away. In Traverse City, once the snow starts it won't stop for weeks straight. That's just life in the snowbelt/lake effect areas.
I'm learning not to worry as much about my guys. They continue to look good. Today, however, I went out like I usually do around the noontime hour to give Toby and Ollie some grain. They were soaking wet from the snow and rain, and with a couple of inches of snow they had to dig for the grass and the hay piles that were tossed out for the herd were tough for them to get to for any amount of time due to the herd hierarchy. Toby and Ollie are the lowest on the totem pole of the herd. Ollie is the absolute bottom dweller.
Matt and I decided to bring them in for their grain, throw them each a flake of hay in their stalls and give them time to dry out. When we left the barn, you could see the steam rising from their backs as they munched on their food. I plan on heading back out in a couple of hours to toss them back out with the herd. I just wanted them dry for the colder nighttime hours. I think I'm improving in my worrying!
On another topic... I had an early Christmas present!
I wear that hat EVERYWHERE hoping someone will ask me about it... :)
Since I'm rambling today, I may as well promote the latest EquiSport Photos endeavor.
