The southern part of the country became an Arctic tundra over the weekend, with many cities getting significant snowfall. And as most folks who live in the south know, as soon as ice and snow come into the equation, no one knows how to act.
While most people chose to spend days like today snuggled up by the fire, keeping warm and using the snow day to cook or be lazy, some of your favorite country music stars were out on their land tending to their animals, including Miranda Lambert.
The “Actin’ Up” singer put on her bravest face as she ventured out into the blanket of snow that covered the Tennessee hills to take care of her herd of Gypsy Vanner horses. Lambert is a huge advocate of the equine breed, and when she isn’t in the studio, she spends her days off showing the royal-looking horses.
Lambert recorded herself pulling hay off the back of her utility golf cart, giving herself a hype-up speech as she ventured into the barn to feed her babies.
“Cowgirls don’t cry, not today. But I want to.”
Once inside the barn (which is more admirable than most homes), she tells her herd that instead of going outside to frolic in the frigid conditions, the horses will have a “hang inside stall day” complete with an all-you-can-eat buffet of hay.
As a fellow horse owner, this sounds like my horse’s dream.
Given that her horses were not blanketed, I will go out on a limb and say that her barn is likely heated and those animals live lives of luxury. Nevertheless, having to bundle up and face the cold to do chores is never exciting when you wake up and see the “feels like” temperature below zero.
Ride on cowgirl Miranda Lambert for bucking up and getting out there to do chores herself. For anyone else facing the Artic conditions while having to do chores, throw on some insulated bibs and stay safe.
