It has been SO cold outside!! Highs in the teens and lows in the negatives. Needless to say, I haven't played with the horses for a couple of days, but we have been doing some small things. I groomed Eddie and took his blanket off for a little bit. He was happy to let his skin breathe a little bit, but even happier that I put it back on him! I picked out his feet, and then we all went for a couple of laps in the track. We ran around, trotted a lot and did 2 whole laps in the track. So they were all nice and refreshed to go back in their paddocks. We're just keeping lots of hay in front of them, and making sure that they are warm, out of the wind and as happy as can be! :-)
Tomorrow, I'm probably going to go and trim Jigs, if it's not too cold, then probably trim Diesel's back feet this week and Eddie could use a touch up too. :-) It's always good to keep their feet maintained while the ground is so hard and frozen.

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
