What an amazingly beautiful day we had here yesterday.
I began morning chores at 6:30 with temps in the teens....brrrrr!
by the end of the afternoon we saw 35 degrees.
(amazingly, that felt warm!)
|(Is there anything sweeter than sleeping minis?)|
There is a subtle change in the air...
the sun once again has warmth to it.
The gentle breezes whisper that Spring is on her way!
And so, I spent the entire day out of doors.
I cleaned the pasture, went to the feed store and filled all the feed bins to the top,
as well as the usual farm chores.
The pavilion is coming along.
It is being built by the same contractor who built our house.
When it is finished, it will have a walnut stain finish and a green roof.
I spent a little extra time yesterday playing with the animals.
After being away for the weekend, I felt the need to "catch up" on my lovin'.
Chloe is still limping a little, but does not seem to have any significantly sore areas on her hoof,
so we have decided to watch her for just a little longer.
For the first time ever I actually witnessed the girls playing with the Jolly Balls.
Daphne tried for the longest time to bite the round part of the ball,
and eventually found that she could lift the ball by the handle.
Chloe: "Hey, I want that ball."
Daphne: "It's my ball...you can have the purple one."
Chloe: "It's not nice to be stingy. I'd rather have pink!"
Daphne: "Don't care...my ball!"
And so Chloe opted for biting Daphne in the butt instead.
That seems to be the usual way that differences are settled between these two.
