Still very cold, horses still confined to quarters. Better than yesterday, though - temperature was -5F with a wind chill in the -20s when I went to barn in the late morning - felt like a heat wave! And it got to zero by my afternoon visit. There is some hope that tomorrow will be a bit better - highs above zero and wind chills in the negative teens - and that the horses will get back out for at least part of the day.
Dawn continues to be resigned, Pie is fretful, and Red is agitated. But this morning, after we did our "new" routine of stall picking and hand walking in the barn aisle, everyone settled down pretty well. Red greeted all his herd mates and stopped to watch water buckets being washed in the wash stall. In the afternoon, he wasn't too agitated (for him) and seemed relatively content with our routine. I'm mighty tired of hand walking up and down and up and down our short barn aisle, and I expect the horses are too.
By the end of the week, we're supposed to be in the 30s, which will seem like summertime . . .
