Duking It Out
My favorite Facebook post recently, referring to our weather, said (and I'm paraphrasing) that Spring and Winter were duking it out and Winter was kicking butt! We dropped about 50 degrees in one night and had about every weather event except a tornado! I slipped blankets back on the mares to combat their shivering. They've been getting fed in the barn in the evenings. The corral is once again a muddy mess.
On the flip side, we need moisture in any way we can get it! We did some over seeding in the pasture where it was damaged by last season's drought. It was risky since its been so dry and we don't have any way to irrigate it but if we didn't do it, weeds would find there way to those places. So hopefully this moisture will help stimulate the new seed.
Crazier yet, we are planning on camping next weekend. Hello! Sure didn't think we would be planning it around snow!
This is the first time I have posted from the iPad. If it looks funny, I'll fix it later.
