[RC] Blizzard-cold conditions - Don and Pam Bowen

And it's plum miserable here as well, in NorCal, close to the Oregon border
below Klamath Falls.  Snowed a foot yesterday, currently -7df...... and will
likely go down more overnight, the high today was 16df.  Even filly is doing
well, romped with her personal llama in the snow, she's the last of the Fire
MT babies, 7 months old now.

We've been in NorCal for exactly one year.

Yes, all horses currently eating a LOT, they are amazing, good hay goes a
long way.  Charlie Liskey, a good vet that came from here said the horses
would thrive, and they are, they are all fat with the local hay.  No grain
here, just good hay and good gut fill, it's all I can really do and they
seem to be fine.  It's me having an issue, a spoiled SoCal implant, that is
having a difficult time..................to go out in this weather and throw
that good hay :).  As someone told me, no such thing as too cold, only an
issue of proper clothing, I'm working on it, and coming from SoCal, where I
spent all my life running around nearly nekkid, this is an experience!  I
have good boots, lots of thermals, lots of gloves that don't really work.
All my good gloves work just fine, until I need to touch and grab things,
like the metal clips on the gates, or grabbing the water tanks to dump, or
grabbing the pokers as we call them to break ice, anytime I grab something,
the cold radiates thru my gloves.  Anyone out there know of good gloves that
could prevent frostbite at Mt Everest?  That's what I really need to make my
life ok :).

Our experiences with horses can guide us
thru the inner landscape of ourselves....
