We had RAIN (almost an inch) here Wednesday and Thursday and I saw there was a break between that storm and another one heading in late Friday afternoon, so I took off up the mountain to go buy pellets for the horses. I had emailed the ranch owner and she said they were almost completely out of their midday pellets, so I knew I had to get up there before the Christmas holiday. They get 2 feedings of pellets (am and pm), but they all also get a noon snack. I provide the noon snack pellets and I try to always make sure they have some Timothy pellets and some Integrity senior (for calories). Otherwise they either get alfalfa hay or pellets for their two meals.
It was a BEAUTIFUL morning here in the desert, with fog all over. We only get that effect after a tropical storm and Wednesday's storm WAS tropical. LOTS of moisture, but not cold. Friday's storm, however, WAS COLD. Our mountains are now COVERED with snow!!!
I took the time driving up the mountain to stop and take photos along the way. Here are a few of them:
P.S. Quad wasn't feeling well (again)...lots of stretching, peeing, he even laid down at one point. We kept an eye on him, but then he was well enough to go eat more pellets. The ranch owner said she would keep an eye on him for the next couple of days...sigh...
