I’m talking multi layered kind of cold.
Layer from head to toe kind of cold…you know…ski mask, hood, 3 shirts and a sweat shirt, winter chore coat, long johns under the jeans, insulated coveralls, 2-3 extra pairs of socks, and 2-3 pairs of gloves kind of cold! It’s not going to win me any beauty contests but it’ll help keep the cold out for a little while at least. The worst thing about all theses layers, is when you get it all on and realize you have to go to the bathroom. Just like a 5-year-old. lol
I do this 3 times a day, because with these temps the chickens and ducks need to be checked at least that many times a day. They need fresh (un-frozen) water and the eggs need to be gathered so they don’t freeze.
Last week while it was still somewhat warm we got pictures of 2 of the horses that we will be taking to the Pitzer Ranch Horse Sale in Nebraska. These pictures along with the horses pedigree and other information will go to the folks at Pitzer to be put in the sale catalogue. The sale is in April again this year. Last year we only took one horse. You can read about that here and here. This year we are taking CK Kings Chex (we call him Leo) and our big “grade gelding” Chief. (A grade gelding is just one that isn’t registered or has papers).
I got one of Moe too. He loves to go with us when we go riding, so anytime we get the horses out he thinks it’s time to go for a ride. He’s whining at me in this picture, “Please Mom?” Not this time buddy!
As always, thanks for reading.
