I live in Texas now but I grew up in North Dakota. I was wondering about the horses. Are they just turned loose to forage for themselves in the winter or is feed put out for them? I have heard that in the “early days” when settlers first came to N.D that that is what was done–that in the winter everybody just turned their horses loose. I enjoy your blog very much.
Great question Lois. This winter we let the horses out into a field where they munched on alfalfa hay bales left there all winter and could venture down to the barn for water if they needed to. The horses around here can fend for themselves pretty well. As long as the snow isn’t too deep they can paw and get to the grass under the snow. This winter they needed a little extra feed because of the uncommon snow fall. Our horses cleaned up the bales and look pretty fat and happy to me…fat and happy and ready for spring (just like me).
Jessie – I can’t wait to hear your music and I’m hoping I can get a sample online? Please let me know how?
I went to my undergrad in Vermillion, SD, and traveled to the Badlands to go camping and relax – a truly natural heaven on earth. I’m now a follower and will be reading, so please keep writing, taking pics, and singing. Thanks again.
I would like to know how i can hear the song Boomtown? let me know please thank you.
Hi Angela, Thanks so much for your interest. The song is so new I haven’t recorded it yet, but have plans to put it up on YouTube as soon as I can. I will post it here when it’s done and keep everyone up to speed on the recording process. Thanks again!
