Freezing Drizzle

We started the day at 25 degrees with freezing drizzle and wind.  The boys were locked in their stalls with the top doors open this morning - a room with a view.  The barn overhang kept them warm and dry.  Boomer and Reggie would have done nicely with their doors open, but Paj and Ben would stand at the end of their runs, gazing longingly at the pasture while getting soaked.  It's one for all and all for one around here, so in they stayed.  We've warmed up to a balmy 27, the drizzle has stopped, and they are back outside, harassing each other.  After every lock-up, they must harass each other.

And again

I know that Spring is coming.  We've had a couple of beautiful days this week, I found a ladybug, and I saw a bluebird!  Sure signs of Spring.

Beautiful photos!! We have cold (mid 30s) and high wind. Nasty nasty weather.

Dang, I was hoping for pictures of the harassment party!

I know the weather can make you miserable, but that photo of the spruce is amazing. Thanks for braving the nastiness for us. :)

Pretty! Everything has such a nice coating of ice! We didn't get that much freezing stuff....yet! However, the path to the barn was treacherous this morning - even the dirt driveway was slippery!

Outstanding shots! This weather can be so different. It was 68 here and a few degrees cooler where our daughter lives near Las Vegas. What is that all about?

What a stunning photos, Terry!
The winter and the snow looks very beautiful to me, principally as I live in a tropical country.
Wishing you a pleasant day.
