He spent two or three days last week in one of our stalls, and was brought in again last night when the temperature was supposed to fall into the twenties. It poured down rain most of the day yesterday, which turned to sleet and snow last night.
I'm grateful that we have this nice barn and happy that we can make this one horse's life a little more comfortable, but my heart aches for all of the animals that I know are out there neglected and abused and suffering through this weather.
It's kidding season, so the horse has goat company. None of the goats have kidded yet, so I guess I brought them in too early. But, I don't regret it because if I'd left them out, I'd be constantly worried that they were having their babies out in the freezing cold and that we'd have to go out to drag mommas and babies through the sleet to the barn.
