It doesn't take much for us to break out the party hats and costumes!
St. Patty's Day and the fact that the snow had melted from the front pasture
was cause for celebration yesterday.
The horses and donkeys spent the morning out roaming the pasture...
in search of hidden hay piles that I had strategically placed all over the acreage.
(There is barely anything growing there to eat at this point.)
The blue skies (temps in the 20's still) gave me the motivation
to do a pasture clean-up.
I can only drive the gator in the front pasture when the ground is hard...
so, yesterday was the perfect opportunity to clean up the manure that had
laid buried beneath snow and ice for the past two months.
Of course, I had plenty of company.
When the work was done, it was time to party!
Red, our red-haired Irish lad picked shamrock glasses for his costume.
Ollie, of course, got wild and danced all over the dry lot.
(It might have been a little too much green beer that got him going!)
Moonbeam: "You want me to wear what?"...
he's a party pooper!
The donkey girls never disappoint.
They are always in the mood for a dress-up party!
As for the pigs,
shamrock glasses were all MaryAnn needed to break out in song...
as she belted out "When Irish Eyes are Smiling"
and "Oh, Danny Boy...."
In answer to your question yesterday as to whether I am knitting or not....
I just finished these (my own pattern)...
and started on this (pattern picture)....
using this yarn...
(I love these colors....Mountain Goat yarn in Pinecone by Mountain Colors)
