Monday Farming

It sure has been busy here on our little farm today. The temps were spring like. It got to +10 degrees here which it totally crazy for this time of year. January is always cold, and tons of snow. So we took advantage of this and worked outdoors. I house cleaned the winter chicken coop. Took 6 wheel barrows out and replaced a dirty floor with clean dry shavings from the planner at our sawmill. The chicken coop has a lovely cedar smell now!

I took the goats for a walk then put them in my garden for the afternoon to munch on our Christmas tree. They did a wonderful job of decomposing it for me.....

Hb came home from work early so, we took the back hoe and cleaned out the sheep's pen and put in a new round bale.
We brushed the horses,and made sure all the water lines were in tip top shape.

I came in when the Weeones got home from school and made chicken fried steak with gravy and mashed potatoes for supper. The Weeones ate some oatmeal strawberry bars that I made earlier this morning while they waited for supper to cook. They never get full!

  2. Hi, Jessica! I love hearing about your days working with your animals. You got so much done! Our goats have been munching away at our Christmas tree too. Your meal sounds delicious. We had chicken fried deer tenderloin for supper tonight-so yummy!
