Frozen Wasteland?

Well, we’re definitely frozen, but not a wasteland. πŸ˜‰
As much as we humans may not like these cold temperatures…*ahem* -32*c this morning, with a -42*c windchill…this is the time of year where the little deaths happen, so the re-birth and renewal can happen come Springtime.
This cold?
Very necessary for the climate we live in…
And so, when we have these cold temps, instead of complaining, I celebrate the fact that we have no wind.
This cold is so much easier to dress for, compared to -20 and 60km/hr winds…this cold is so much easier to keep the animals warm in, compared to -20 and 60km/hr winds…
This cold, I can handle. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday, I braved that cold with my camera…YAY!!
13 days without it in hand was not pleasant.
But fatigue will do that to you…and that fatigue I blame the wind for. Like I said, cold and calm is easy to deal with…cold, windy and snowy? Ah hell no! That’ll suck the life out of ya so darn fast.

Any ways, a few pictures, with more to come, including Daphne with her log…that dog is nuts! lol

Look! She has a teeny heart-bum! ❀
That’s what I call their rumps when they’re carrying the right amount of weight to get through winter comfortably. It’s that little dip in between rump cheeks at the spine that makes the heart.
Even our Bella has a bit of a heart-bum now…that makes me happy, because she’s my hardest keeper.
Astrid, however, her bum has never looked like a heart…Astrid’s is like a peach.

See? Peach bum. ;)

See? Peach bum. πŸ˜‰

While I was taking pictures of the horses in the sunset light, I had help…I always have help!
This time, it was Trouble.
He really does live up to his name.

Astrid does seem to love the cats...

Astrid does seem to love the cats…

She's licking him...and Trouble is just fine with it.

She’s licking him…and Trouble is just fine with it.

And then, there’s this…

"Bella, you sniffing Trouble's bum?" "Well of course I am, Mama!"

“Bella, you sniffing Trouble’s bum?”
“Well of course I am, Mama!”

I did tell her to be careful. Trouble is bad for letting the TomCat spray out to mark the horses as his. That would be awful to get up the nose!

Stay warm, friends! πŸ™‚
