These are the 2 4-H steers that my girls will be showing in June. They are looking good but seem to dislike thier calf shelter. I think they sleep outside because the can see the other weanlings we are feeding in the other pen. They really love the people attention as well.
This was a 4 wire fence before the snow.
This is the shortest snow pile in the yard beside the hay pen. I am getting tired of shoveling my steps, the feed troughs and the paths to the feed sheds. On the plus side, shoveling is good for your abs and arms if you want to build some muscle.
This is just a group of my ladies headed from the waterer over to where the tractor has just placed some new round bales, they are sick of the snow to.
This is Charlotte, she is the leader of the pack and you can tell how unimpressed she is with the snow.
Even the horses don't look terribly impressed.
This is Frank & Kenworth, our very overweight goats. They are the sweetest, they are on thier wayup to the house for a sunday treat of bread and baking. What we do for our animals.
This is my horses bragging that they are out of thier pen while we feed, they were prancing around and were pretty proud of themselves until our Jack Russell herded them back into the pen.
I just love how the snow piles up of the fence posts. It just looks pretty. This by the way is a 5 plank fence made out of 2x10's with 6" spacing between the planks so do the math. We have lots of snow.
On the plus side, the snow is sure pretty to look at, this is my driveway which I actually can get out of right now, to much snow.
That little pile of snow is my picnic table sitting on our cookout deck. There are also 2 benches that you can not even see. I can't wait for summer when we can get back to some serious bbq and marshmallow roasting.
I also cancelled a trip today that I was really looking forward to taking. I was supposed to go to Edmonton (4 hours away) for a conference for the school board. I got up this morning and drove the 28 km to town and decided that I was not going to risk life and limb for a four hour drive. They roads were terrible and I am really glad I did not go. I listened to our local radio station this evening and there have been some terrible accidents (no fatalities, thank God) and the police have even closed some highways because of bad driving conditions. Obviously my choice was the right one. The only downside to this is that I was booked to stay at the Fantasyland Hotel in West Edmonton Mall. http://www.fantasylandhotel.com/home/wemindex.asp If you ever to get to Edmonton, Alberta you really should check out this hotel and the mall. It has the best roller coaster.
