i have just taken this huge piece of ice out of one of the horses buckets - this has frozen overnight so you can tell how blooming cold it was! had to take a hammer to most of their buckets!
Horses are fine - snuggled in their rugs and stuffing their hay!
As i was taking these pics Iona just had to come and see what i was up to
mind you she's in the dog house big time, as she managed to demolish her electric fencing last night - she knows she won't feel the zap (i can assure you its only a little zap!) through her rug!
Chickens are not at all impressed with this weather, although they are still laying! They find the front of the stables is a nice little sun trap and a good place for a wash and brush up!
Time to go now and thaw out! Winnie has the best idea!
