Weekend on the Farm

This weekend brought cold temperatures and sunshine for us on the farm. The winter has proven a formidable nemesis for chores, and we find it hard to motivate ourselves to bundle up and head out into the weather. Alas, we must, so we do… but we make sure to keep the wood stove stoked and the tea kettle on the ready.

We had to jump ol’ whitey to get him to start, but he finally did and we took a bale of hay down to the horses

We groomed some ski trails around the farm with this nifty groomer Clay built. Maynard sure does love to mess up all those pretty tracks we lay down… but he has so much fun we can’t help but let him

Kindling was on my to do list and I got to use my gorgeous Alaska axe

There you have it folks, a little peek into our weekend. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as we enjoyed ours.
