-- The horses had their hooves trimmed and Dakota's teeth were floated. He's eating so much better now, not dropping feed on the ground. What I thought was a sore tooth was actually his pointy teeth hurting his cheek. No wonder he was rather grumpy.
-- Hubby's horse choked on alfalfa pellets. This is the second horse we've had do this; our youngest daughter's also did so several years ago. I'd been feeding them the alfalfa pellets mixed with their grain to help stretch the hay, and because this year's hay is rather poor quality, but I've stopped feeding the pellets to them completely now, even soaked.
-- The frogs are singing in the pond, green grass is growing in some places, and I've seen green leaves on underbrush along the side of the road. We've watched V's of geese fly overhead. I'm not complaining about the nice warm weather, but it's so early for spring to be on the way. This week last year we were in the midst of a blizzard, the second largest snowfall in Oklahoma weather history.
-- Last month was the 8th warmest January in Oklahoma's recorded weather history. A news anchor said "isn't it great to live in Oklahoma, where every day is a surprise."
-- As reported, we finished fencing in the hayfield so the horses can graze out there. They are thrilled!
