The Girls are getting fluffy and this morning I ventured out to the shelter with the camera to get some close up shots of fuzzy, fluffy coats. 🙂
See that moisture? ^^^ Right after I moved the camera, she wiped it on my sleeve. I’m just a walking Kleenex to these guys. 😛
Her winter fuzzies are coming in thick and plush. I love rubbing my hands over her winter coat…even knowing what it means.
Just like cats, horses fluff themselves up when cold. No one was shivering this morning (because it’s a dry cold, not a wet one) but they were grumpy about the changing weather. Wasn’t as cool this morning though…there was no frost on them, not like yesterday morning.
Here you can really see how thick her coat is getting. It’s good. Hopefully, this year Our Sable will get a really thick coat. Last winter we had a few days that were rough on her. We’re not sure she’d spent a winter outdoors before coming to us. We’re better prepared with blankets for her too-and all of them. Just in case.
