We're experiencing a deep cold snap here in SE Michigan and I've been worried about my 26-yr old horse, Natural, and to a lesser extent the donks. Well, worry no more. On my way back to the house from the post office today about noon I stopped to throw some extra hay for the donks. I put it in the shed assuming they'd want to huddle inside while eating. Ha!
Fran and Gabby went in, broke off a mouthful and went to stand outside in the snow to eat it. Luigi didn't seem at all interested in this mid-day snack. He was busy following me to the gate to see if I'd let him out to nibble on bushes.
These Mediterranean beasts don't know they're supposed to be miserable in this weather.
