*shiver, shiver* It is colder than a witch's titty down here in Miami! Well, ok, it's not too horrible -- the low tonight is supposed to be 42. Egads! That usually doesn't happen until January or February. Then again, we had 90s in October and a couple nights of low 50s/high 40s in November, then three straight days of rain this week (during the dry season). Stupid f-ing climate change!

So, of course I had to snap a few pics of Salem in his winter gear. Last night, he made do with just a turn-out sheet (the low was 53), but tonight he is wearing a fuzzy, snuggle-y fleece blanket liner underneath and the turn-out sheet on top. Sorry about the quality of the pics -- it was dark, I had no horsey-holder, and Salem was very busy socializing and "Hoover"-ing hay up off the barn floor. What the heck, I am going to just throw the whole lot on here.

Comfy Cozy Blanket Liner:

You can see his pretty "dressage-cut" tail here --
I know it's a bit short, but I like it to be banged at a point
that's full and thick. It's very sporthorse-y, no?

Snazzy Turn-out Sheet:

And here's one of Salem giving his buddy Pirate a
good-night smooch:

So the Ponykins should be just as snug as a bug in a rug out there tonight. I threw him a bunch of extra hay and put hot water in his Senior to make a warm mash -- I'm sure he's got a nice full belly and is all warm and cozy and drifting off to sleep, ready to dream about giant candy canes and fields of fresh carrots.
