After doing my morning chores I just had made a nice herb tea to enjoy a relaxing moment, when I heard my 2 outdoor dogs barking and horses running. I looked out of the window and saw 2 of my 3 ponies running wild in the yard. Ok. Minus 28 C so have to rush to get my thirty layers on before going outside. One pony is eating out of the birdfeeder, the other is heading towards the horse cookie bin. My third horse was in the round pen so I locked that with a rope. In winter it's opened up adjacent to the pasture and I water them there. The youngest pony finally followed me into the pasture and I locked it with the rope gate. One left. Her head was deep in the as good as empty bin but some crumbs still taste good. She wouldn't come so I took the whole bin and she followed me into the round pen through the metal gate that comes out into the yard. In between I had to discipline my dogs because they gone wild. Once they sat down and got calm I could get those ponies back. Then started the truck, got fencing tools from the cabin and drove alongside the fence to check where they got out. The truck is SO cold , but no time to warm it up properly. The tires feel like squares. Found the broken rope and fixed it. No fun with minus 28 C with bare fingers , screwing two ends together. One temporary post broke so I got a couple and put those in. A deer went through it. This is the second time this winter that this happened. First time it was minus 43 C windchill. Pets have their own agenda and number two is escape your pasture when it's really cold. Number one? Get sick in the weekend so you can't find a vet. Lol. Anyway, thought to share a regular off grid day with naughty ponies. Lol.
