A frozen crust on top of Sunday's snow made morning chores
a bit treacherous yesterday.
Although I love the look of our farm in the snow,
the ice makes animal chores a little more complicated.
Even the chickens skate across the top of the ice.
Accomplishing chores without falling is a slow and careful process!
All of the four legged critters decide to stay under cover...
with room service delivered to them.
and MaryAnn brave the snow and ice,
to visit with the dogs and me for a few minutes
before heading back in for fresh hay and a warm nap.
I love this time of morning, just after dawn,
when the land is wrapped in soft shades of blue.
Everything is peaceful, quiet...
that is until Tom and Chuck start gobbling their protest at the ice!
