This image truly made me smile!
I listened to the weather forecast yesterday instead of my little voice and only blanketed a few of the horses last night. I figured we could do so this am with the help of volunteers but I awoke to light rain, winds, freezing cold temperatures and wet horses! The temperature continued to drop throughout the day and the drizzle wouldn’t stop. Horses came in four at a time to dry so they could get blanketed. We can deal with the cold but not with the added rain and wind. The weather won’t be better for several days and a few people have even mentioned that there is light snow in the forecast! ☃️
Many thanks to our volunteers, Karen, Kim, and Jill, who blanketed nearly all of the horses!
Penny does not seem to mind the frigid temperatures as she happily grazes in her fine new blanket!
This little Arabian gelding is our senior resident.
Emma’s cute little nose is still a bit lazy on one side due to nerve damage sustained from her gunshot injuries.
Although many months have gone by, there is still a $7K reward being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) that shot her multiple times. We must continue to seek Justice for Emma.
Emma is hoping that 2018 will be the year that her dream of a loving, forever home as a pasture mate, will finally come true!
Silly Ruby doesn’t seem to mind the cold at all…but then again, she is tucked away in the cozy barn!
