We've been dealing with the snow & cold since last week when the storm rolled in. We got about 8-10 inches of snow and it was really cold . . . and windy for a couple days. The snow has started to melt the last day and it's been a bit warmer. Last night wasn't as hard of a freeze, so maybe we'll have a few days here without having to do water crocks. But, I've gotta go water the buns in a few, since today was pretty cold.

Another snow storm rolled in tonight and it's supposed to snow up to 3 inches tonight. This storm doesn't have the wind with it though, thankfully. Very calm & peaceful snow fall :).

Yesterday was a very nice sunny & slightly warm day, so I went ahead and dumped the trays. The hoses were all frozen under snow & ice still, so we had a hose hooked up to our bathtub to rinse the trays off. That hose was about 25 feet short of reaching my barn, so I couldn't rinse off the big tray system. Instead, we filled buckets and dumped it on the tray to wash it off and also raked it off. Worked pretty good :).

Since it was so pretty outside yesterday, I went across the street with some of my family to see what my cousin & siblings were up to with training the horses. And while I was at it, I went ahead and took Brandy on the walk with us :). I have a small dog harness and it fits her very well. She needs some practice on walking, since she doesn't always walk . . . she just sat there with the harness & leash on half the time, LOL! But, she did do some walking and I think the snow & ice melt was what hindered her from walking too much. She didn't care for the slightly damp feet ;). Maybe I can train one of the buns to walk well on a leash, that'd be fun.

Here's a few pictures of Brandy & her snow adventure:
