Baby It's Cold Outside

Our new BFF Scot Haney from Channel 3 weather said yesterday morning that it was 12 degrees in Norwich. The day before, we blanketed Dolly, Danny & Dakota against the wind and frigid air (the greys have been blanketed for weeks already). Over the years, we have discovered that our horses prefer to be outdoors in the winter when the weather is clear - the cold doesn't seem to bother them at all. With round bales to feed on 24 hours a day, they eat constantly, which also keeps them warm.

This morning, less than 48 hours since the new blankets were put on the three musketeers, Danny's blanket is torn to shreds. This is Dakota's doing. He mouths everything like a puppy - always has. I imagine that blanket will come off this afternoon and I will attempt to do some sewing. Alas, with my sewing skills, I doubt it will do any good.
