LOL, I noticed in the running clip how dirty the camera lens was. Earlier, I dropped the camera in the snow and it got all wet. Then it iced up. I tried to clean it and it only smeared up. I also lost my camera lens cover somewhere out in the barn area. Drat!
It was coming on evening so I decided to feed them an early, and big hay dinner! Since Annie is so thin skinned and the temperature was 12 at 4:00 this afternoon, and dropping, I decided to blanket her up for the night. However, she was covered with crusty icy and snow. Fortunately, I was able to curry the ice right off of her back. I was really glad to see this because it means she is staying warm enough. I bought a fleece blanket at WalMart for $2 and I put this under her blanket so that it would be warmer and would absorb any wetness on her back without making her cold. (After currying her, she had a small wet area around her withers.) Hopefully, this blanket and liner will work to keep her warmer tonight. Scout and Yalla are thick furballs and Nadia, although old, seems to be holding her own, as well. As long as they seem to be warm enough au natural, I'd rather not blanket them at all.
