I am cold! I just came in from giving the horses some hay and breaking the water in the trough. I am also hoping that the waterline to the outside hydrant did not freeze. If it did  and it busted, I will know soon enough.  That will mean hauling water in 5 gallon buckets until it is fixed. I am heating up the horses alfalfa right now. LOL What I am doing is making hard chunks soft by pouring boiling water on them and soaking them. They will not eat it hard like it is. These are cubes from a bag. I bought some earlier in the year when I knew that hay would be sparse.  Amazing enough my horses are fat enough that we are making it through the winter without losing much weight so far. Comes in handy having fat horses sometimes.
Ok got to go. I am hungry!


  1. Bless your heart Cleleste....Go get yourself some hot soup or coffee...Stay warm...It is cold as hades here today too!
    love ya,

  2. Your weather has made the local news here in the Northeast!  Layer up!  Poor horses ... they must be wondering 'what the heck?' :)

  3. I hope all that frozen alfalfa didn't make you hungry! I hope your water lines are OK.


  4. Hope you thaw

  5. My brother talked about the weird Georgia weather, too, over at:
    It's crazy, and I too have seen it on the news.
