Weathering the cold.......

We are weathering the cold. They are predicting snow on Saturday. The indoor kids and I have been staying out of the cold as much as possible. Even the pups don't want to go outside much. The horses are braving the cold as well. It is 16 degrees this morning. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Cassie and I have a game to keep her occupied. She will chase the ball all day long if you just throw it. I have to admit they have been spoiled. Sonny sleeps on her loveseat, Ruggles sleeps behind the couch and Cassie never sleeps! I hope their mommy and daddy are enjoying all that warm weather because when they come home it will be completely different! All is well for now.

Hanging out.....

Its a lazy Sunday with my fur friends. As you can see, the three muskateers are hanging out with me and enjoying the fact that I didn't have to go anywhere today. They love all the attention. Its cold and windy today. The winds are pretty strong and I keep hoping we don't lose power. The pups and Barney and I are just enjoying the warmth of the house and not doing a whole lot. The horses have their blankets on and they are grazing where they can and run to greet me at feeding time.
Other than that...nothing new to report!

Cassie's First Snow

Well, I have been saying this snow was coming for a week now. It has been dry and freezing. Although we just began dipping into the thirties, we are scheduled for the low twenties, high thirties next week. But, when I went to feed the horses tonight, this is what I found. However, it began snowing really hard after these shots and we actually almost got a full ground cover. And its sticking! FFFFFRRRREEEEEZZZZIIIINGGGG.
Cassie had her first experience with snow. I know she will get much more than this but it didn't stop her from exploring and getting a little snow on her nose. Of course, Sonny is her partner in crime so she had to investigate too even though she has seen it all her life.
Everything is fine other than us freezing our butts off. Barney doesn't even want to go outside! I'm very jealous that their mommy and daddy are off in Costa Rica right now soaking up the sun!

Back on the farm.....

Back with Cassie, Barney, Sonny and Ruggles......(left to right)
The pup, Cassie has grown a little but remains small but mighty. She is wound tight like all pups but cute as a button. Sonny and Ruggles love her and take care of her. Well, Ruggles gets a little ticked with her once in a while, but loves her nonetheless. Barney is a great cat. She is much more social this time and loves it when you give her treats.
The horses are always glad to see me at feeding time. They got shoed yesterday and are doing great in the pasture.
Other than that, we are just hanging out. Everyone is happy, healthy and hungry as usual!
