Snow Bed Snow Bath + kids

Below zero temps with brilliant sunshine for my Mara B visit this afternoon. I found Mara relaxing in a snow bed where she was pleasantly napping and I had to encourage her to stand up. She did enjoy a vigorous snow bath before returning to her feet.

Our inside the barn activities of grooming and nibbling on hay where enhanced with a close up of the new kids. Megan and Maddi both stopped in to check on them, so I was able to take this photo. Their growth has been amazing to watch, they are only three or four days old and are noticeably bigger and stronger every single day. Nanny goat is obviously doing a wonderful job as are the fabulous chore crew in assisting her.

Mara B and I also ventured out to inspect the snow drifts and there are plenty around to delight in!

Real winter temps, piles of snow, bright sunshine and sweet special animals to take pleasure in.

Snowy & Cute Twins

It was a very snowy visit with Mara B this morning. I didn’t even take her out of the paddock, we simply chatted and I gave her a treat.

I also visited the cute twins in the barn and even snapped a photo to share. Nanny Goat and kids were much more active today than yesterday.

The cute twins reminded me that I’m a twin! So I’m reposting an old photo of my twin David and me on the ponies we had one summer long ago.

All was beautifully white and serene at the stable when I departed.

It feels like all has been slowed down for the horses and humans alike these past few days.
