Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! This post is short and late because I spent the day cooking and hosting a big turkey supper at my place.

Even though Canadian Thanksgiving is more than 6 weeks earlier than American Thanksgiving, it doesn't stop the snow. Today was our first major snowfall of the year. I fought icy highways to go check on Kachina in the morning. There's no hay in the pasture and the snow was enough to make grazing difficult so I brought Kachina and her pasture buddy to their winter pen. I was hoping she would get to stay out a while longer, but it was only a matter of time until this day came. Kachina looked thoroughly unimpressed with the weather when I showed up, and once I moved her she dug into her hay with gusto, so I don't think she'll miss the pasture too much.

The mare is displeased

Anyways, she should be comfortable now. For that, and so many other things, I am thankful :-)


  1. Brrrr! I'm pretty sure she has the same thoughts as me about the snow. :)

    1. I guess it's good that you live where you live then :-)

      The part I'm saddest about is that the days of fuzzy winter hair and super long cool-outs/drying off time is upon us.
