Today was supposed to be in the 40s with a possible snow storm blowing in tonight. Nina was supposed to get shoes today. So I get to the barn and the wind is blowing, it is trying to snow and it is 21 degrees. I have my warm boots with me but I am not really dressed to stand and hold a horse in a 21 degree wind. Sucky. Plus Nina has only a sheet on and she is cold and spooky. I am trying to decide whether to throw her heavy blanket on her and make my farrier work around it or get Nina out and lunge her just enough to get her warm. My farrier pulls in about then and he really does not want to shoe my mare. He has been dodging flying hooves all day from the "I'm cold, leave me alone" mentality of some horses today. He says if I want it done he will do it, but since I am freezing just standing and talking to him for a few minutes and Nina is not getting ridden much so I am all for a few days delay. So we rescheduled for later in the week and after blanketing and feeding Nina I got to go home. MUCH better idea.
