Yesterday, The Golden Girls wouldn’t come out of the barn. They didn’t care for ice skating at all. So the kid and I went to work with a pick axe to remove the ice in front of the doors and gates. Then we spread some straw for added traction to allow them to get to the water and to make chore time a little safer for us. The sheep appreciated it and spent the afternoon outside. Last night when it was time for bed they greeted me at the gate. (No Rose isn’t pregnant she’s just, um, fluffy.)
“Did you bring cookies,” asked Daisy?
“Of course,” I replied. “Come on everybody let’s go inside.”
“Quick! She’s going down. Grab the cookies,” I heard them say.
“Save some for me,” squealed Bo.
At least the straw makes for a soft landing.
Today it is snowing. It is expected to snow all week. If you are reading this and you live somewhere where there is no ice or snow on the ground and it is above freezing right now, please leave a link to your local realtor in the comment section. Thank you.
