Oh this weather! Whineywhinewhine



Yes it is April 26th and snowy at a fresh 32 degrees this morning. There goes my horsey weekend.

this is "too funny" because when we tell people we are from Maine... they seem to think it's the land of ice and snow!!!!! Today we had temps in the 70's and you're the folks with snow!!! well, it should melt quick... but, you can keep it!!! :0) best wishes.....

We caught the edge of that weather. One day I was sweating in a t-shirt. The next it was back to coveralls. Everyone got a little extra hay that day-just to keep them munching and warm.
