Slip Sliding!

We woke up to a beautiful sunny morning. The jennies were down in the front paddock welcoming the sun when I first looked out the window. Even the Guineas were soaking in sunshine in the coop. There was just one catch …

… the jennies need skates! It truly would not take much to turn what ice is already there into a rink. I’ve never seen it like this – thick – hard – very slippery ice – everywhere!  Again today I spread hay, wood chips and even manure in an expanding island so the jennies can move around between the hay barn and their sun shelters. I’ve done the same in the back paddock.

The jennies will not step over icy patches. As soon as I put down a new trail of wood chips they are on my heels to check it out. Bella was funny this afternoon as she kept moving from a pile of hay – around the ice – to her munching stick.

Meanwhile inside Oz was having a rest. He was completely worn out by noon! As was ever vigilant Teddy! Days are lively around here!

    Whoa … you nearly sneaked that little cutey past me 🙂 Welcome OZ. That icy road looks really scary. Look on the bright side you will have brilliant compost after the spring thaw. Be safe. Laura

    I was thinking about you ladies today. We have freezing rain here and I expected you were getting it there. The animals are all safe and cozy. Oz looks tired. Hope he hasn’t been too lively. We know he loves his new home. Thank you ladies for posting pictures. We couldn’t have asked for a better home.

    Teddy and Oz already cuddling up, now that really is wonderful! Here’s to harmony!

      We knew Teddy would be a great ‘mom’. We were amazed when each of our granddaughters came along … Teddy would suffer all kinds of indignities to be close to them. He is a big softie.
