Rocky and Magic- January 2023 Edition

Posted

Two horses, Rocky and Magic, left and right, belonging to Linda Hurth, braced against the howling winds during a strong winter storm as they ate hay from their trough as the snow continued to fall on March 13, 2019, in Nederland, Colorado. Experts called this March blizzard a bomb cyclone that brought conditions equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane. High winds, feet of snow in the foothills, and cold temperatures created hazardous conditions on the eastern plains of Colorado and upwards of 2 feet of snow in the foothills. Hurth said her horses actually liked the colder temperatures and seem to do well as long as they have access to food, which she provided plenty of throughout the day.
