Today was ranch chore day. I made sure not to look at the temperature as I headed to the barn.
I fed and watered the guys and then realized I couldn’t put off the real work any more.
You see when you take this:
and add this:
and this:you get lots and lots of this:
But I was dressed for the occasion and couldn’t wait to get started. (this picture may or may not have been taken a while ago):
Anyway, many of the animals were willing to help.
I got 8 wheelbarrow loads out of there. I kept reminding myself that while I was shoveling, pushing, pulling, and dumping, I was working my arms, shoulders, and legs. I’m sure when I wake up tomorrow I’ll be able to tell you if there were any other muscles used. I also found out that the wind chill was 17º out there. Luckily, I was only out in the wind when I left the protection of the corrals.
But in the end it is all worth it when I get to go out and enjoy this:
Have a great day.
