It was more of a rain storm, but it froze into the sliperest, nastiest ice possible. It was so slippery that I couldn't get to the barn by walking upright. I got half way across the yard and fell down. I was then throwen a rope and pulled to the barn. How embarressing was that/ To get back to the house I took a scoop of free choice salt and mineral thats' used for the horses and SALTED my way to the house. Don't laugh it worked!! The ice postponed the photographer for a day. It never fails, bring 6 extra horses in to the barn for the night and something will change your plans. and you got alot of extra poop to clean up!
