We always take down our tree on New Year's Day, so we did that when I got back from the barn, and then I did some house cleaning - the air smells wonderfully of pine needles!

Turned Maisie and Dawn out at around lunchtime. The wind's starting to pick up, but the temperature's up to about 12F, so the wind chill is hovering around zero, but they seem glad to be out in the sunlight - and with a new round bale to chow down on. I had intended to hand-walk Noble, but he absolutely insisted on going out - much whinnying and even some stall-dancing! So out he went - I'll go back in a couple of hours to check on them and bring them in if necessary. It was nice enough that I was able to stand out and fill water troughs while watching the horses. A nice start to the year!
Enjoy your January day, and may it include horses!
