There’s a cold wind and rain at the ranch today. Our long time horses were looking at me expectantly at dinner time, even more so because of the weather. On nights like this they get extra hay, extra senior, an extra carrot, and ....... a nice warm mash. No one came up out of their bucket for air. LOL

No. Insurance adjuster won’t be out until Saturday. Three were enjoying being loose in the “ pasture” but with the weather they are doubling up., Trooper and Shar are peacefully coexisting together which surprised me as Shar likes to keep to herself. Trooper gets along with everyone and they even eat together with no “grain bucket wars”. LOL. While he leaves her to her bucket she wouldn’t dare attempt to eat from his.

Tonight it’s not as cold but the wind is blowing and the rain is falling steadily. I’m warm inside the house not looking forward to heading outside to feed. “Why do I have horses?” I ask myself. The cats are inside where it’s warm and are pretty much self sufficient . Or hamsters, I could have hamsters. With a sigh, I layer up and head out into the elements. As I head toward the shelters I’m greeted by soft nickers, perked ears, and large soft trusting eyes, grateful for their dinner and warm mash. Back in the nice warm house, as I climb out of my wet clothes, I smile and say to myself, “I’m sure glad I have horses”.
