This morning Huachuca Mountains showing first snow for this winter season. Snow at the house melted very quickly yesterday then later anything wet froze solid. Today is bitter cold with flurries and wind. The cold front is sitting instead of moving like predicted.
A pat of alfalfa made all the hens and roos happy. There is ever vigilant Elvis.
Hens were curious when I pulled the ice from one of their water troughs. Peck, peck, peck at ice. Silly chickens.
Warm spring like weather the past few weeks tempted a creepy crawly to come out. No idea what crawled out the 2 inch hole but I'm guessing it's frozen now.
Gate watchers, only Chelsea is allowed to barn this morning. Too cold to keep track of others if they decide to run off. Tumbleweeds keep piling at this gate.
Horses staying in blankies all day. Wind chill is still around 27 degrees. The stalls have thick rubber mats but I sure wouldn't want to lay there without something to wrap up in.Yikes, this cold is no way to ring in the new year!
