It's been really, really cold this week.
I'm not talking twenty degrees or ten degrees or even zero degrees. Yesterday the high was negative one. Negative one! For someone who grew up in Los Angeles County, negative one is nearly incomprehensible. It should never ever be that cold. I snuggled up to my space heater and spent the entire day inside.
Today was supposed to be a little warmer, but the mercury had barely reached negative one when I decided that I had to go check on Mystyc.She seemed happy to see me, and despite a little snow on her ears...
and ice on her shoulders, she seemed completely comfortable.
I also checked her waterer to make sure it was working. It was--yay!
After I was done visiting Mystyc, I spent some time catching up with friends.
See, Mom, I'm not the only crazy one!
I also walked around the entire stable area just to make sure all the horses looked okay.
Mary Jo's Scarlett was sunning herself with three little bird friends.
Casper had a bird, too.
Despite the extreme cold,
everyone seemed comfortable...
and in good spirits.
I didn't stay long, because it really was too cold.
Still, I'm glad I made the effort. I feel better knowing that Mystyc pony is just fine. Hopefully the weather will warm up soon, and I can get back to riding!
