More of the Same, But a Little Better
It was about 6F this morning and the wind isn't quite as bad, so that's already a better start to the day than yesterday. Since the wind chills will be below zero until at least lunchtime, turnout today is at owner option. Only one electrical outlet wasn't working, so that stall's bucket in on an extension cord until we can get the outlet fixed. I put my three out briefly while their stalls were being cleaned, and they all enjoyed good rolls in the snow. Dawn spent most of her time hanging out at the gate since "her" horses were still inside the barn, Maisie ate at the round bale, and Noble ate hay in the lee of the shelter in the small paddock. When their stalls were done, I put them back in and they were satisfied. After lunch, they should be able to go out again for a while.
