No More Pretty Pictures

… for a while! We are well into our first l…o…n…g thaw. I knew this was coming. With each new ice storm or quick melt I was spreading wood chips and manure in order to give the donkeys some traction to move around. I wondered what that would look like come spring. It is quite amazing to watch (bothersome to clean up). Each hour or so a completely new layer of chips and manure would become exposed as another layer of ice disappeared. I just kept raking in circles … always coming back to new piles! Cue the Alfred Hitchcock music that goes with that ever lengthening hallway! Ha!

  1. Mud season comes to us all. It’s never pretty!

    Hi Wendy, I know to well what you mean. I’m not wanting any visitors due to the state of the paddock. I had to put out manure on the ice and I knew it would be bad, but it is worse than I imagined. I am hardly able to find a clean area to put out the hay and I’m constantly apologizing to the donkeys. Hope I will be able to remedy the situation soon.

    Don’t work too hard.

      Hi Elsie … look at us two! 😉 I was looking around as I worked and remembering my neighbour who always teased me saying that I must walk around with my rake behind the donkeys because there never seemed to be much manure around. Sure looks different today! Yikes!
