Thanks to Global Warming, it's bitterly cold and windy. So cold and windy that I had to get blankets for the horses. We were expecting snow last night, so we hopped in the van and headed for Tractor Supply to see what size blankets they had in stock.
They had one size 81, which was a Weatherbeeta Landa, modeled by Libby. They also had one size 78, which was a Weatherbeeta Orican, a little warmer blanket for delicate Mr. B.
That was exactly what I wanted to get for them.
If the weather doesn't improve, I can get a neck warmer for B to keep him safe from a severe chill, even in the wettest, windiest cold.
The new pony should never need a blanket, since she's shaggy and tough.
The girls bought her a peppermint flavored salt and mineral lick while we were out. If that doesn't make her love us, what will?

Here's Scott acting like a Border Collie, waiting for me to finish the horse portraits.
