Another day in paradise

Look at there poor cold horses, all caked with ICE.. you would think they have no shelter -but alas they do - a nice run in barn with soft bedding and protection from the elements. They even have a round bale in there!!! But -- my darlings prefer the brisk wind and Ice and snow. They click with iceclices when they walk --- but are always happy to see us still.

Igloo Mama

After our initial complications and having to bottlefeed this little foal - we were exhausted - having to get up every two hours.. worth it but tired -

Well after about a week of bottle feeding = spilled buckets and sleepless nights ... hubby found this on the internet-- it is called an igloo mama :-) you can get an igloo water cooler-- unscrew the spigot and replace it with a PCV extension-- really easy --- and a lambs nipple fits on the end... and well-- warm milk - anytime he likes....yipee!!! he is up to 2 gallons a day now - eating when he likes..heheh igloo mama is very popular at our house!!

We had him out exercising and he started bumping me-- I lead him back to the Igloo Mama and he trotted over to her in relief-- he also sleeps under her..:-)
