MORE snow...

I knew we were expecting another snowstorm to arrive sometime this afternoon, but since we didn't know exactly when (and the forecasts were way off on the last one anyway), I decided to just keep an eye on the skies, so to speak.  It started off with light flurries, so I decided to wait a bit longer, but when it finally turned it turned fast.  We left the bookstore and went out to the barn...

...To find both Panama and Spaghetti hanging out in the snow.  Sigh...

I think most likely they weren't concerned because it actually wasn't that cold yet.  It's fairly warm for snow, so I think it'll be one of those heavy, wet snows that we often get in Colorado in the spring.  Anyway, Panama was hanging out with his pasturemate, Savvy, who was already blanketed and therefore didn't care about getting snowed on.  Spaghetti was waiting at the gate at the end of his run, looking around as if he were wondering when someone was going to come blanket him.  Silly horses!

So I towel dried both of them, threw the blankets on (their backs were slightly damp, but between the blankets being breathable and the climate here being so arid, they'll dry fast underneath), and fed them both some treats (Panama stood at the fence, waiting, and nickered for his "goodbye treat" as I call it).  It's supposed to snow off and on throughout tomorrow and tomorrow night, so the blankets won't come off again until Monday morning.  I'm so sick of all this snow!

We had snow last night, just enough to turn things white and then it mostly melted off today.

Silly horses! That's adorable - waiting at the gate like "where's my blanket!?"

The picture you are referring to is from the other post, right? He was actually waiting because he was confused as to why I'd put him back. LOL If I put him back but don't leave right away, especially if we didn't ride, he tends to stand there and wait for me to come get him again!
