Bully Cakes

Bully Cakesjan 13 009We’re back into the deep freeze today. Boy, those few mild days were a real treat. And I do keep reminding myself that this winter has been nothing like last year. We can easily manage these short freeze ups. A few days ago I was writing about ‘hoof cakes’, the ice-wood chips combo that can create stiletto heels on donkey feet.
Bully Cakesjan 13 012Today’s version was a ‘Bully Cake’ (Bully being our side-by-side). When we tipped the box right up – nothing moved! Not to fear. Same as with the donkey hooves we just had to do a bit of ‘picking’. 😉

The plowed pathways (raceway) were put to good use again as they romped around this afternoon. I love that with the new paddock design we can even plow a route over the knoll. That encourages them to use the wood path that Ede painstakingly shoveled for them.
