Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch...


"Can't you see I'm eating here?"

It was 37F this morning when I left for work. It was 72F when I got home this afternoon. I'm not real fond of 35 degree temperature swings, and the accompanying 'blanket on', 'blanket off' routine.

Yeah, this is some weather, huh? I mean, I'm lovin' the comfortable afternoons, but I can see it being a pain for you and your horses. Take care out there.

We are expericing a few weather changes here now that we are in spring and summer getting closer, one day can be really nice and to hot for heavier rugs and then by that afternoon its blowing a gale and cold so not much fun for horse lovers and covers!!!..But my husband does say they were born without them it just makes us feel better having them on...
I guess he's right... maybe...

Yes, those days are really strange days.

We've got 40F this morning and 60s today - same deal. Ours are fuzzy enough no blankets required - unless it's cold and raining and then we've got that same issue about temperature swings. I hate the days most when it's warm and sunny in the a.m. and cold and rainy in the p.m.

Me neither. But the only "blanket on, blanket off" routine I go through is on my very own Tired Ol' Ass. But I AM ready for cooler weather, tho.

BR, we are having 40+ degree swings...forties to eighties...with high pressure, low humidity.

Supposed to have a 45 tomorrow, with a high of 90. Smokey's a lucky boy to have a Daddy that cares.

I hear you! I just bought my one guy a new stable rug today. I love your horses, check out my blog if you have a minute,I have a dunn too. He's a Quarter Horse/Connemerra cross that had quite the history. Look forward to reading your blog :)

Yeah, we're about to get there, too. Sigh.

I don't mind the cool weather and rain, but the temperature swings are a pain. Almost better to leave the blanket off, but Bar is kind of a sissy about being wet and cold.

Here we go, headed into another winter. Indoor arena, here we come.
