Now That Its Warm - Snow

Again, cold and warm are relative based on recent experience.

Midday - 26 degrees.

The goats are all out, but its getting thick with snow, and they are all hunkered in the sheds. The babies were out, but they're in for a while. We'll see what the afternoon brings.
Dave put the blade on to drag the lane. I hand shoveled the past weeks when it snowed, but its laying on what was left from a couple days ago after it drifted back to where I had cleared it.
Luckily, the tire that has been to the garage twice this year to de-thorn it and patch the inner tube, was still inflated today. The guys did the last one "on the house" since we hadn't gone out of the barn with it, and they were not really busy. I waited and they kidded that the tube would soon just be a big patch. Someday maybe the mowing and goats will eliminate the thorns in the fields and we won't be giving them as much business. Meanwhile they expect me back and I'm sure they're right.

I just found your blog and have already added it to my favorites. It's great. By the way, I found it through your comment left at "Life at Painted Hand Farm."

I have learned so much from Painted Hand Farm. I went to my first PASA Field Day there. The begining of the meat goat decision, and a practical,sensible woman to talk to.

Thanks for touching base. I am honored to be on your favorites list. You made my day. I'll be looking you up next!!
