Well, today I had planned on cleaning out the Lean-To for the girls. A fair amount of horse poop, but nothing I couldn't clear in about thirty minutes, however, because it warmed up last night and then froze again by morning, my wheel barrow has now frozen into the ground. Even at my best efforts with a decent spade shovel, I was unable to release it from the grips of winter. And I now have to be creative where I throw hay for the girls because the pen and paddock have turned into an ice rink. Poor girls are walking gingerly over the crappy frozen ground to keep from sliding. The picture above was the snow the day before it all changed to ice with a dusting now over it. The other picture is Fido, who managed to get himself locked in the goats' pen the other day after they had escaped once again. The small animals in this household are on my naughty list right now as Fido has eaten at the horse apple buffet yet once again and promptly came indoors to puke in my kitchen. Rotten retard cat, Cheryl, has dove into kitchen garbage can and poured it all over the floor. I am so sick of Winter.........Looking so forward to the days of open doors where cats and dogs willingly go outside to vomit and catch mice and I can keep horses' area clean and turn them out to pasture without worries.
