We’re going through a period of unseasonably warm weather with the high today hitting 14 degrees.  Won’t last long.

Took a drive over to the Claireville Conservation Area but the sky was such a monotonous grey that all the color was washed out of the fields.

One picture I did get was of this tired fellow waiting for a customer at the Claireville Ranch.  Standing hoof-deep in mud he was looking very forlorn but he did perk up a bit when I approached.  I just wish I had a carrot or apple for him.
