I haven't been able to do anything with my horses this past week. The weather has been awful.

Cold temps (low of 35) chilly wind, thunder, sideways torrential rainstorms.....

It was so bad that I had to put My Boy's blanket on a few days. I would have used his rain sheet but by the time I was able to get to him he was already soaked and shaking so I decided the warmth of the heavier one is better suited. He doesn't have shelter in the back pasture (trees nor run-in shed) so I feel bad leaving him in the weather. So yes, I guess I baby my horses!

I don't have a blanket to fit Miss Luna yet, and has a run-in shed so on the bad days she even got to eat inside and stay dry. This morning, the first truly sunny day all week, she was actually laying down in her shed in the sun! I almost felt bad disturbing her for feeding time.

Our dogs like to guard Luna while she eats, then help her "wash" her feed tub once she's wandered off. Luna always obliges them by leaving a few stray pellets for them to nibble on!

Hopefully I can get some pony time in tomorrow afternoon, I heard the temps might hit the high 70's~ almost normal temps!!
