From Tricia Hardy with Whips and Wheels Driving Club...

"PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Coronavirus, COVID-19, all the shut downs, a confirmed case of the virus in Davie County & the fact that Tommy & Karen are just recovering from the flu, I am cancelling the St Patty's day event at TLC Farm this weekend March 28th. If we reschedule I will post on our website & Facebook. Hope everyone stays safe and healthy."

COVID19 Update:

Effective Thursday, March 19th TLC Farm will be implementing new policies in an effort to do the best for our family and borders during this pandemic.

We are encouraging social distancing as recommended by the CDC. We have several high risk individuals at TLC and are doing this for their safety, and your safety. Borders are allowed to come by at their own discretion.

TLC will not be doing any training sessions for drivers, only horse training. This is subject to change come summer, but is the current plan in motion.

No outside instructors or drivers are allowed at TLC at this time. TLC will notify everyone when this policy has been lifted.

As of right now, the Whips and Wheels Driving Club event, scheduled for 3/28, is still being held here at TLC. You will be notified if this is cancelled.

We appreciate your understanding as we protect our family, and continue to care for your horses!

Snowy winter in the forecast! โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ

Are you ready for winter and snow?

For those of you interested, I have finalized my Snowfall Outlook for 2019-20.
Posted Nov. 25, 2019
FEEL FREE TO SHARE

Forecasting winter weather months in advance is far from an exact science. Still, many want to know what we (meteorologists) think. I do try to put some science behind my seasonal guesses.

The most popular sources for helping us predict long range weather patterns is to study the El Nino-Southern Oscillation. The water temperatures in the eastern pacific near the equator plays a big role in weather patters.

Many people know about the El Nino (warmer water) and La Nina (cooler water) in this part of the Pacific. This impacts our precipitation and temperatures. When neither are present it is a LA NADA year. Neutral.

This year we are in a La Nada pattern. Given that, I looked at our snowfall in La Nada years. Since 1950, there have been 21 years that were La Nada. Average snowfall for the Piedmont-Triad is 8.9" in a La Nada year. Our most recent 30 year normal for snowfall done by decade (1981-2010) is 7.5" Our 105 year average is 8.5". So La Nada is above both of these.

In addition, I see December being colder than normal, January normal and February again being colder and then there is always March with big swings.

Given all of the above, La Nada, colder than normal winter temperatures, I have bumped snowfall projections up by 10-20% above normal.

Here in the Triad, our winter total would be close to 10" with closer to 15" on the northern side. and 6-8 over our southernmost counties. Mountains see a big range due to elevation change, but a general 20-40 inches with areas above 4000 feet seeing more than 40 inches.

I will have the complete winter outlook next week.

Overnight, the severe weather threat ramped up to a 'moderate' risk โ€” a 4 out of 5 on our threat index.

From about 2 p.m. to about 8 p.m., the majority of the Triad is looking at a strong threat of potential tornadoes, damaging winds,...

Colic: what to do while you wait for the vet - Horse & Hound

Itโ€™s often difficult to tell if a horse with colic is merely gassy or is suffering from something more serious, like a twisted intestine. Regardless of the cause, knowing how to identify common signs of colic and what to expect when the vet arrives will prepare you to help your horse.

With nearly 60 years experience of veterinary practice, Dr Richard Chapman has published a book entitled 'Do I call the vet?' Here he looks at what you can do to help a horse with colic while you wait for the vet
