Well, we made it to 25 today... but... by tomorrow we should be
back in the 40's or 50's! This is a crazy winter.
Here is a picture I've shared before of a terrible winter in the past.
Every time I think how much I miss living in the country full time... I think of winters like this.
Yes, that IS Beau, our pony, on the porch, and his friend Lilly, the mini-horse, at the bottom of the steps.
They had a shelter. Beau preferred the porch. I would look sometimes and he
would be standing at the door, looking in at me.
When we were porch-settin'... before the deck was built... he would come up to the very edge,
close his eyes, and listen to us talk.
He was wonderful.
Despite the fact that it snowed most of the day yesterday,
we didn't get much snow.
It's still very cold though, 25 degrees. I thought long and
hard about taking Jester out.
One of the red tails was
hunting over the pasture.
Here's another look at the blue rooster. He's a beauty.
Yesterday, I let Jes step inside the coop for the first time.
He sniffed around, eating poop, etc. like dogs do.
Today, I told him he could come back in while I was in there.
Jes jumped back and the rooster went UP... and both ran off.
I had to laugh.
I poured a little bit of seed in the flat feeder, and it drew this female cardinal.
This is what happens when I tell the dogs it's time get in the car and go... Jester does zoomies around me as we go to the car. He is such a wonderful little guy!
I confess I have not done my seed order yet, so I am going to buckle down tonight
and try to get it finished.
Have you all ordered seeds?
