Yes, my silkies and frizzle girl did well out there this past winter. I do use heat on them. I'm like you, when it drops below 20 is when I start using the heat.
On another note, had great news after another mammo, and ultra sound. Radiologist says, you are cancer free, after standing there staring at the ultra sound while the gal was doing it. I must have been more worried than I thought, because I broke down in the dressing room. :/ They were happy tears!
I go to a store after, and get a phone call. The dr. decided after looking at the images in the dark room, I should come back in 6 months. That's mean, just mean! I had asked him after he said come back in a yr...oh a yr?...not 6 months? I have to wonder if that changed his mind. That may have been ringing in his ears after we left. Anyway, the gal that was doing the ultra sound had been doing this for 22 yrs. She even said it didn't look concerning before the dr. came in. And she smiles. She has seen a lot. She was explaining afterwards what is not good to see..like a starburst, after I told her I had seen it on the mammo screen..it looked and about the size of a pea. There were two together. So anyway ol way, will see in 6 months. I'm really not too worried.
