Here are a few photos of our farm after GOD blanketed everything with the bright beautiful snow. Beautiful from the warmth of my snuggly living room with the fire going and a warm cup of hot coco in hand.
I have learned to be very cautious in the cold and damp as my body is very sensitive to the cold and damp creating pain and suffering.
I find my self frustrated as before the metal was installed in my pelvis I loved the snow, loved to play in it, snow ski, snow shoe and just slide down the hill with the kids not any more my body acts like I am 100 years old in the cold and damp. I simply can not stay out in it very long no matter how many layers of clothes I put on as the nerves are all connected in the body. For those of you reading my blog living in weather below zero I hope you don’t have hardware in your body.
We blanketed Lily and Rocket Man this winter during our snow storm so happy it is over. Blankets must be checked for dampness I know they say waterproof but I have yet to find anything that can withstand the rain we get in Washington. Our living room had blankets drying all week by the stove and the smell of air fresheners ahh winter. Blanketing is a controversal subject in the equine world as some people think never and some think always. I happen to think it takes common sense each equine is unique and if the rain/cold is making them shiver you must blanket and change the blanket daily in the wet and cold. Most importantly make sure the equine has clean hay and fresh water.
We are very grateful to GOD for the favor we received as we moved through the snow and ice storm. We are praying for an early spring and a nice warm summer.
Today is a beautiful day in the mid 50’s the farm is glistening with the sun touching the trees with thick moss, Washington State is truly a beautiful place to live.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
