Texas winters are a bit hard on old horses. The weather is a real up and down roller coaster. We can go from below freezing to above 70 in less than twelve hours. This puts us all in a severe danger of colic. So far, the Keeper seems to be on top of it all. She puts electrolytes in our food, plus a dab of olive oil everyday. That helps keep our guts running and us feeling quite fine. Of course an occasional apple does not hurt at all.
I hope every else has had a chance to enjoy the sunshine. According to the weather we are supposed to be below freezing again in the next two days. We have not dried out from our mini monsoon yet. That makes ice everywhere. Ever seen a horse slide on ice? It is not pretty.
Okay, I have to go finish my gallop with Durango. He is waiting on me not so patiently. If I don't get back out there, he is liable to tear a gate down!
