I am so bummed that I have not been able to get out to the barn and see Jack. Even more so I wish I could have been around to help out at the barn with all the winter horse chores. The power was out, propane heaters were used to keep the pipes from freezing and horses were hand walked up and down the barn aisles as the arena was frozen. The wonderful people of Continental Farms deserve a vacation, somewhere warm for all their hard work. I can't imagine going through winters like this every year. The Portland area rarely sees snow and nothing like this has happened in nearly 30 years. As you can imagine no one was prepared. I am sending out warm Holiday wishes to all and extra warmth to those who have put in time and labor to care for our horse buddies in this "Arctic Blast".
