Saturday Links from Tipperary

Seriously. Crockpots are essential winter survival gear for equestrians. Do you really want to have to try and COOK after getting home from the barn? Seriously. Crockpots are essential winter survival gear for equestrians. Do you really want to have to try and COOK after getting home from the barn?

It is cold and black out. It hasn’t rained a ton yet, so the ground hasn’t gone to mud just yet but soon it will. Evenings are spent wondering if those reflective eyes were a the barn cat or a raccoon. (Don’t kid yourself – it is always a raccoon, the barn cat stays in the office where it’s warm.) Jackets and flashlights are now a must, as are thicker socks. My other major winter must-have was put in to use for the first time yesterday – my crock pot. Fifteen minutes in the morning to load it up means a hot dinner once I’ve made it home from the barn – or at least it should. Tomorrow, I have to remember to plug it in too.
