WHAT?!? This is Texas, land of the hot summers, and no winter! I want my 100 degrees thank you (I actually like it until just before 100).
I kinda feel like I'm in an episode of the twilight zone. Someone moved us to Ontario, and forgot to mention it. I mean....this is like REAL winter!
So far, we had the pipes freeze, like, well under the ground. That lead to one of the faucets breaking off. Which of course allowed us to see that the PVC used wasn't really PVC. It's electrical conduit. Yeah, that kinda explains so much of our freezing problem! So Jae now has to dig up ALL the pipe that runs from the main to the barn, and replace it. I decided this could wait until, you know... normal weather.
BB (Black Boy) and Beaudreax (I'm gonna have to steal that name for a future horse) have been saints. Grain, ok. Move so you can clean my water? Ok. Let you pick out my feet? Ok. Be nice and easy walking out on the ice.. ok. I mean, they are wonderful. Granted.... I'd much prefer to RIDE them. The last few days I have gotten the best shows of their gaits. WONDERFUL movers. Both are well settled in, and act like they have been here foreever.
And Cruz.... he decided to settle in with a bang. One night he's nice, but still just tense. The next morning, he is all "ok hug me, I love you, and is that grain for me?" He's much more relaxed, and started to ask for attention now! We've also gotten to work with blankets, and scary things (throwing ice out of the buckets... scary!). He's a doll. And again... I'm so frustrated because I can't ride. I'm living on what used to be an ice rink, and is now a mud wrestling pit!
So, needless to say, not a whole lot of fun or interesting things happening. Now, could someone please turn on the outside heater? Thanks!
