Too Cold to Ride

I know that I'm going to provoke a hail of snowballs for this post, but it's too cold to ride. It's almost too cold to feed the horses, but I know that Buddy would come inside and get me so I put on everything I own and go feed him and Lucy.

We're having to keep the beet pulp and alfalfa cubes inside the house to soak because they freeze at the barn. The horses have on every blanket they own. Tonight may be a record cold temperature. I've got all the faucets dripping and the pets with paws inside. (Pets with hooves, so sorry, you're not housebroken.)
