Bonus Cute Animal of the Week:
Every week we feature another adorable animal in addition to our cute foals. This week, Crunchy and Gemma show off their blankets before getting tucked in for a cold night in Kentucky.
Crunchy and Gemma are prepared for the cold temperatures tonight! All the horses are tucked in their blankets warm and cozy after getting their exercise in today too! #equinerehab #minidonkeys #sharethelex #ootd #ootadah pic.twitter.com/KATBWWZnoR
