Everyone is smiling!
Warm weather has settled upon us for a few days.
Yesterday, with temperatures in the 40's, made me think that perhaps Spring
was just around the corner.
And then I remembered... Winter just began a couple weeks ago.
It was so cold for the past two weeks that it felt like we lived through an entire winter.
There is more cold to come, so I am going to just enjoy this warm patch
as if it were a gift.
Grass was finally visible in the front pasture, so I took advantage of the warmth
and walked the acreage with my muck bucket cart and a fork.
In a half hour's time I had entirely filled a bucket...
and I had just cleaned the front pasture the day before!
Manure is a farm product that we produce in abundance.
After I finished the front pasture, I returned to the dry lot to clean up what
was dropped in the half hour while I was out front.
Four more piles... which I dutifully picked up.
And just as I was about to exit the dry lot,
someone dropped another pile.
Don't laugh, Moonbeam... you are the guilty party!
It's a never-ending job...
and the completion of which you only get to enjoy for a brief moment!
Horses love to keep us humble.
I spent a couple hours yesterday morning off the farm.
As the sun rose, Hubbs tended to farm chores while I drove east along our beautiful river...
(don't worry... traffic was stopped while I took this photo!)
to babysit this little guy (happiest baby ever!)
and his big sister.
You gotta love two year olds!
And what a stage presence this one has!!
