    I use the nibblenets, theoretically to slow my easy keepers down, but it doesn't slow them by much. I'll usually throw a small flake on the floor of their stalls to tide them over while I'm filling...

    I wear ski pants over long underwear. When it's really cold I'll wear sweatpants under the ski pants, and always mittens rather than gloves. Again, the ski variety.

    My husband died 14 years ago. I am so sorry you're going through this now.

    It will get better. Just take it a day at a time, and do whatever you need or want to do to take care of yourself.
