Plus today was sooo nice out, I just had to get a few long-overdue farm chores out of the way while the sun was shining warmly. I really dislike being cooped up in the house when the birds are singing outside, it just seems so wrong somehow - specially after being stuck inside the past five months, you know?
So besides raking horse poop off the barn ramp, mucking Jack's stall, dismantling the old chicken tractor and lugging all the lumber into the garage, walking the dogs and doing some carpentry work in the summer coops, I cleaned out the winter coops for the last freaking time this year! wOOOt!
OK fine, I have to do it all again in a month once the flocks have been moved out of the barn for the summer, but still. It's progress :-D
The gang's always happy for fresh bedding
and time spent with momma,
who's quite sore after hauling 12 heavy wheelbarrows
out of the barn - all that shoveling and lugging
of heavy things requires advil and a hot bath tonight!
Worth every minute of work to see these happy faces-
did I tell you how much I love my chooks?
The horses were laaaaazy sleepy old guys today,
enjoying sun baths, mud baths
and foraging for those tiny new blades of grass -
the proof is in the yawn!
Horse fact: he/she will immediately go roll in mud
less than five minutes after being groomed.
Well that was today, I'm off for that hot bubble bath now... The weather's supposed to hold for tomorrow and then go back to crap (ie, snow, freezing rain, grey skies, wind) as of Friday for the whole weekend.
Let's hope the weather monkeys are, once again, wrong on that front!
