After a week of cold, rainy, sleety, foggy, wet the sun has finally come out to finish the job and finally, FINALLY usher in Spring. The measuring dog is signing off.
About the time that first photo was taken, the knife sharp crust on top of the snow finally gave in and the equines were able to plow through the snow and get out into the field for the first time in four months. They come in everyday to say hello, have a bit of hay, a drink and then head back out into freedom. I'm sure they'll be back soon to take up their blogging duties once again, but just this moment, they are too busy wallowing in the joy of Spring.
I'll have to go back and see if anyone got the date right or came close. I know there were a couple of guesses for mid April. At the time, I was thinking, "jeez, that's mean, I sure hope it doesn't take that long!".
