Another cold, snowy day in the country. The temperature got up to 6 degrees. Some of the horses were standing in a row with butts to the north wind. I think horses in winter are so gorgeous because they grow a thick, velvety coat of hair that insulates them against the cold.
Here's Pete the Paint, the horse I ride most often. Isn't he handsome?
Laying down some straw bedding for the bull calves.
These bulls are waiting for their fresh bedding to be put out.
Notice the feathered feet. I love finding their tracks in the snow. The Sharptail Grouse always reminds me of the "Partridge in a Pear Tree" from the carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas. When they perch in the trees they are so large, and funny-looking, like a chicken roosting up high in the treetops.
