Remember the beginning of last week was that huge ice storm here in Arkansas? That was just two days ago that I wrote about that! A good portion of the people that lost power last week are still without it this week. When I saw this little bugger today, I froze like I usually do when I see a hornet, and then it struck me: It's only February 6! I even have flies in the house already, and I don't even want to talk about the %*&^(&# ants!
When I came home from work, there's my horse standing beside his round bale, but not eating hay. He was grazing! I went up to him to see what he was picking at, and I'll be darned, there's green grass poking up from the ground. Odin asked me to scratch the top of his rump, and I'll be darned (again) if I didn't get a bunch of loose hairs. He's starting to shed!
I think it's time to get back outside! Hibernation is over!
