The Ice Princess Cometh
Tuesday March 8 2011
Lock your doors. Get those winter coats and boots and hats back out. Turn on your heaters. Fire up the hot tub.
Winter's not over yet. Snow follows the Ice Princess to Arizona, to Montana, to Arizona, and back to Idaho.
An Owyhee morning comes and a blanket of white covers the ground.
Snow gloms on horse tails and forelocks and backs and manes.
Cold wet bodies shiver. Horses huddle around the feeder, butts to the wind, eating hay for warmth.
Horses plow forward into the wind, noses down, heads cocked sideways against the stinging spitting snow...
...as The Ice Princess dances in the snow.
