Ten degrees this morning. Negative five wind chill. Last night we put out seven bales of Bermuda grass hay (for 8 horses) to make sure it would last through the night. Grass hay is the fuel for their heat generating engine. No blankets. (See our recent blog post. Blankets subvert their own amazing thermoregulatory system.) They had the barn breezeway for a wind break. And the submersible pump in the pond to keep it from freezing. This morning they were all in high spirits. Even Skeeter who will be 27 in March. Several were actually frolicking in the snow.
Skeeter boy always knows where the camera is :).
