We’ve got about a foot here and its still snowing but the horses couldn’t seem to care less. Lexi is having a ball out there in the snow… every time I look out I see her running, bucking and rolling around, being her frisky little self. Ethereal just wanted to eat my camera, assuming there must be a treat in there somewhere!? I do have to say that I love seeing how tough our girls have gotten.. last year Ethereal never would have made it through this weather without a blanket and this year she has a nice thick coat keeping her warm. Last year, if a flake fell she would head for the run-in and this year, I can’t tell you the last time I saw her in it. Lexi on the other hand has always been a tough girl, never heading out of the weather. It makes me so happy to see them thrive in their natural state!
I’m so lucky to have been a part of his life for any amount of time, I just wish we had more. I know that loss is part of rescue, a part of farming… a part of life for that matter, but to be honest this is my first time experiencing a loss like this and I am struggling. I’m trying to take comfort in knowing that he left this world surrounded by those that loved and cared for him. He was “my boy,” the sweetest guy ever and a big puppy disguised as a horse.
We will miss him terribly but his memory will forever live on.. RIP my sweet boy
Lexi surely wins the “Tough Girl of the Year” award… I swear nothing stops this mare! She could be an icicle from head to toe and it never phases her ~ She is a tank! Always right outside in the worst of the weather and always seems to be having a good time doing it. I can just hear her now.. “I don’t need no stinkin’ run-in!”
