I’m not thinking they’re having as much fun as we are on New Year’s Day. Yikes! Look at the snow on their back and how well they insulate themselves. As long as these horses have access to water, forage, minerals and cover (which they have all of the above), then they are better off being outside grazing as opposed to inside a barn. They are choosing to hang out and graze, instead of running down in the coulee away from the weather. Amazing, isn’t it?
I thank you, Debi, for informing folks like me from the East who are novices regarding raising animals in Montana or under conditions harsher than we are accustomed to, like myself who grew up in New England. It puts me at ease now knowing that your beautiful horses are still “fat and sassy” as we used to say where I come from! A wonderful New Year’s Day message!
