The Worst is Over Now
I haven't seen John since I've been up. His winter gear is gone, so I assume he has walked down to the shop to get the tractor. I saw the county grader on the highway, so looks like we might get out today. The wind is still blowing, but there are not the extreme gusts that we experienced the last couple days. It's just cold.
I noticed from the kitchen window that the horses ventured out to the pasture this morning. I quickly put on my own winter gear - well, as quickly as one can put on layers of winter wear - and grabbed my camera and headed out. There were drifts I had to trudge through right out the gate, but once in the pasture, most of the snow has landed in the terraces and there are actually places you can see grass stubble.
Butter couldn't muster up any activity from the herd, so she ran with the dog a bit, while the others just meandered around the pasture as if not sure what to do with themselves. I had blanketed Windy and Butter, as they tend to get run out of the barn more often. I pulled their blankets this morning, as I think the worst is over now. All of the horses had a good roll or two.
