It is Cold Out There!

The weather is reminding us that it is January here on the ranch, my least favorite month of the year. Highs are in the 20's lows 11, needless to say the water is frozen and my hands, face and ears get cold fast. It is days like this I remind myself as I do chores, A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast.

At least it has not snowed here yet this year. Breaking ice on tanks is not that big of deal, but if you want a challenge then try to chip ice away in rabbit waters to refill the bottle, that takes effort!

Your blog takes me back many+ years to when I was a youngster on the farm and these tasks were just a way of life as they are to you now. Seems as if the winters were harder then than they are now, but, yes, I can still feel that painful cold on my nose and the iceness of the water on my hands. You have my admiration and respect, girl!
