Whether you like it or not, Old Man Winter is knocking at our doors. This morning was our first time here in central Maryland that the water troughs have had a nice layer of ice on top of the water after a night in the mid 20s. I have had to send out the email to the farm reminding everyone of the typical cold weather protocol. Things like draining water from the hoses and making sure the heat is on in the tack rooms to keep pipes from freezing. We are on the cusp of the time of year when everything is about to get 10 times harder while wearing 10 times more clothing. Are you ready?
