we are experienceing some real cold weather in 2014 what a way to start a new year.
single digets down to 1 degree, wind chills below zero. horses are doing fine, barn is
closed up . glad I was able to get them all out for a few hours the other day before this
cold spell started.
feeding extra hay as it will make heat for them as they digest it.
at night I turn all the minis loose in the barn, they have 3 long stalls to share, so the pony and 2 of the little geldings are in that section. my mini is a little lame so he has a blanket on, and is kept in his own stall, but at night I open his door and let the little mare in with him so they have 2 stalls to share, and their body warmth will keep them warmer.
well, time to go out and feed them now, wind has been blowing all night, 30 to 60 mph alll night.
take care everyone and stay warm as this is going on all over the country.
