Very chilly and stressful start to the day! Phone call from a neighbour saying, “your horses are out!”… Horses now caught and back home… Water solidly frozen. Wind howling. These poultry waterers Filled up at the house and ready to be transported back to where they belong… I’m thinking a vacations would be a lovely thing to do in the winter…

Hauling water when it’s that cold sucks. Stay warm and don’t hurt yourself 🙂
Thanks! I’m moving very slowly and carefully out there – it’s slippery!
Nobody ever gets loose on warm, calm days with nothing else going on in them, have you noticed?
I’m now hauling water too – no hills, thankfully, and further inland than you, so largely missing out on that minor gale coming in off the straits – it was howling right down Beacon this am when I was in at Tanners.
So true! I have to head out there again now – it’s howling away and the way things go this is exactly when someone will decide to colic or break a wing or lacerate a body part prone to heavy bleeding… Blood looks even more dramatic when spattered over snow…
you do paint the nicest word pictures 🙂
Sorry about that… Out here in the barnyard now and happy to report that though everyone looks a bit chilly and indignant, otherwise all is well!
