Hoss, Duke and Knight

December 9, 2013

   Freezing rain fell last night. It was a light rain that landed on our iced over driveway. We didn’t get what some states got, but I have been all day working around what we did get 😮

   It is so slippery that I decided not to work the horses today. The fields are fine, but the drive around the barn and farm is too slippery to stand up on…for long. My horses are barefoot right now. It is much better, in my mind, to do other work, than to have an accident where a horse breaks its leg.

   The round bales in the pastures for cows and sheep had to be chopped open this morning. I am sure they were happy to see me with the axe. All is good now, except for the drive, even the sun is shining.

   Our winter weather this year has been a reminder that we are not in charge! I was going to do some butchering today, but decided that sliding around with a sharp knife in my hand would wait for a better day.

   Another litter of piglets was born this morning after a long night of checking on mom. The trip to the barn wasn’t bad until the rain fell..then the farmer almost did  😮

   A little snow or a little more sun and we will be fine. I say we are lucky compared to those without power and worse. I will just take it a little slower and wait for a day… it will surely change by then, but in the meantime…man it is slick !
