    I am in Manitoba. It's been -30c here with a windchill of -42c. I still trim, I do vetwrap all of the metal handles of my tools. Luckily none of my current clients have drafts as frozen draft feet are impossible for me to get nippers through and all of my shoeing clients have reasonable barns so the horses can come in and have not quite frozen solid feet. The horse holder usually has a worse time of it then me. I actually found the mud in the spring/fall worse, lots of outdoor only horses and clay soil - clogs up the tools and ruins my gloves. The blue shop "paper" towels are a godsend.

    That is waay too cold for me. It's one of the reasons I live in Maryland--not nearly so cold. I'd move to Florida if my husband could tolerate the heat. I'm fine in the cold while working, but then I shiver for hours when I finish. My body temp tends to drop. Takes coffee, soup, plus heating pad to get warm again.

    If I lived that far north, I would not be working outside. At least, I don't think I would...
