April showers from &#%!

After raining all day Thursday and snowing all day yesterday, Mother Nature decided to give us another day of freezing April showers. The rain finally stopped this evening long enough for me to snap a few pictures.

Panama looks a bit bedraggled, but he's warm and dry under his blanket.

Over the last couple of days, his poor cold neck regrew some of its winter coat. He'd already lost a lot of it, so it's short, but feels soft and thick like velvet. Too bad he'll be shedding it like crazy in two days, when the temperatures get into the 60s and 70s!

Look at his filthy legs and bedraggled tail. In a few days it'll be warm enough to actually bathe him... Too bad it'll probably still be too muddy in the pasture to make it practical!
