Today, our high should reach 30, with some clouds, and a threat of freezing drizzle this evening. The average high for today is 47. In Belize, the current temperature is 82, with a high of 88. We can dream right?!?!
Updates on the farm, we are still holding at 2 foals. Grasshopper is currently 1 day over and she looks to come any day. Zeus and Hades are growing and getting weaned. They are not to happy about that, but their love for grain and hay is growing. They have a new love, which is the barn heaters. If you haven’t smelled burning goat, you are lucky! I never knew a goat would stand next to a heater long enough to start smoking, but ours do. I probably shouldn’t brag on that fact either.
Other news, Diesel got a new hat. He has a love hate relationship with it. It keeps his ears toasty warm outside, but it also tickles them. He is only allowed to wear it at the house or in the truck, but not at the Farm. Buddy does a good enough job at removing his coat, that the hat would be removed in seconds.
Otherwise, we are just hunkering down and feeding a lot of hay until this weather breaks. I will say, I’m not looking forward to the mud, but right now I’d take it over the ice. BRING ON MUD SEASON!!
