Beddin' Down The Cows
This morning was early...and cold. Big D took some of the kids in to town early so they could catch the bus to their FFA meeting, and while it was still dark, I got Grace and Levi ready for the bus and on it. Since the babies were still snuggled in their beds asleep, I went out to do my chores so I didn't have to bring them out in the cold.
I watched the sunrise from the sheep barn. It was pretty cool.
After Big D came back from doing his brother's chores then finishing his, he needed me to come down and open gates so he could bed cattle. It was below zero out but as you could see, the sun was out and the air was crisp and I love those mornings. Of course I'd do it.
As Fluff and I contemplated the day while opening gates, I thought "this is the life". I know it isn't every body's idea of a good time, but it sure is mine.
Stay warm everybody and until next time,
