A thaw would be welcome

Morning light reveals frost from nightly freezing temps
Lately, the sun's weak rays haven't been able to thaw the ground on our east-facing hillside, so my riding has been limited and careful. When it's cold like this, Dozer appreciates a warm coat when he's out for any length of time, even if it is too big (it was Rosie's).

The sheep probably appreciate their coats (the fleecy ones, not the sheep suits which just keep their wool cleaner), too!
Who SAYS polled rams aren't majestic?

We are seeing a gradual change in our weather, though, as evidenced by the high clouds that added drama to this morning's sunrise:

Fortunately – finally! – I'm also experiencing a gradual improvement in my frozen shoulder. The stretches prescribed by the physical therapist weren't helping; in fact, the pain from trying to stretch or use my arm in certain ways would nearly drop me to my knees. So when a friend personally recommended this product, I trotted right over to a local feed store to get it. That same day, my personal veterinarian brought home this, so we gave my shoulder a one-two punch the first two days, followed by the Cetyl-M cream alone ever since. I'm sold – and thankful for better living through modern (veterinary) pharmacology! ;-)

That's it for today from . . .

Hmmm, I just might try both of those. Thanks.

Right now I have to say I'm not minding the chill too much. Hoping it lasts through this weekend, as I have 4 days off and hope to finish winter preparations... I put a coat on my Bella and now she won't come to me. She hated it, so I'm in hot water with her.

Hmmm, I wonder if this would help some with my fibro? I might have to give them a try! Thanks and thanks to your personal vet as well!
Hugs,

P.S. personal email on it's way
