I must apologize... after yesterday's blog's break from the snow, I am afraid we are back at it again. Although, Spring is only a month away - so the snow is fleeting.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish a heart-felt thank-you to our snow removal crew.
For his excellent direction and management... Griz, our snow removal supervisor.
And to Hubbs who kept our lanes plowed with his fun, little snowplow.... so that we could reach all of the animals and take care of everyone's needs in this endless winter of snowstorms! There is no way we could survive winter without a plow to clear the lanes.
I am sure that if they could speak English (because, we already know that chickens do talk!) they would definitely thank Hubbs for all of the paths that he routinely shoveled from one chicken house to the other so that the girls could meet somewhere in the middle for snack time and gossip!
Thank-you to our neighbor, Jim, who helps move snow with his tractor when needed; and our neighbor Anna and her girls who also dig in and help to shovel out the animals when needed.
As for the pigs - "Thank you for plowing your own little paths clear all by yourselves." With snacks as a motivator, they routinely plowed their path to the treat box. God forbid they should miss out on a single snack!
And the sheep - who make my heart happy in the winter time, as I have no winter sheep worries at all.
They are built for this weather and if the truth were known, would prefer a 365-day-long winter!
The donkey gals, however, have been doing a bit of grumbling these past few weeks. If you walk close enough you can overhear a few expletives exchanged between them.
