Freeze-Dried Poop Soup!

I talk about the weather here and what's happening, because the weather where YOU are is most likely different. From what I've heard from others, is that I really don't have it that bad, but being whiney and bitchy by nature, know.

On New Year's Day, Mike and I spent HOURS cleaning the sloppy poop soup out of Thai's and Squirrel's stalls and back filling with clean dirt out of the arena. Through out the slop in the runs, there are channels where I hoped the slop would drain and maybe not be so mucky. OK, I did most of the work, but Mike did help push the wheel barrow.

I worked on Friday, and by the time I got home, the temperature was dropping and the ice has just started to form on top of the slop. It's frozen solid now, and because it's so dry here, the muck is getting freeze dried. That's fine by me!

We're supposed to have a chance of rain or snow all week, but the temperatures are supposed to be in the 40s. I'd like a week of 40 and DRY, please.

I promised Cathy some new pictures of Thai... I managed to get one blurry picture before my camera pooped out. (I think it's a battery problem)

P.S. Cathy - She gives her feed pan back too...LOL! Such a good girl!

Around where my colt lives, there are two choices: mud with freezing water, or mud topped with slick-as-glass ice. These two conditions alternate depending on temperature (19 degrees F last night!) So I haven't done anything with the colt, and he is getting very wilful. Next step is back to basics on leading and soon as there's a dry spot to walk in.
