Wylie stuck in a snow drift.  When his feet get cold, he sits and waits for me to come and pick him up.

Still Winter

Someone heard what the forecast for today was and didn't want to get up.

The chickens won't go outside until the snow stops. Hilda is in detention again, little broody girl!  I let her out daily for a little while. Put her out in the garden  for a dust bath when it was so nice Tuesday.

Wylie did finally get up. He likes doing chores in the Ranger.

The snowflakes are so big and beautiful, but it is awful windy. This is the view I like-inside looking out.

Dog Days of Winter?

Kansas sunrise with double sundogs.  I would much rather have the "dog days of summer" than winter!  I guess it's mother nature's way of showing us the beauty in the 12 inches of snow.

Wylie, the snow was deeper than he is and if there wasn't a path to follow he had to be carried.  His little feet get so cold that he will just stop, sit and raise his paw, that's a sign for me to come back and carry him.

Around the Farm January 5

I’m going to use my Farmers’ Almanac to start a fire. How could they be right in predicting this cold snowy weather?!? I don’t know how much snow we received as it’s blowing and drifting. Wylie and I went out this morning at 4:30 ( his idea not mine) and was surprised that the paper had been delivered. We didn’t go back out until 9 to do our chores, that way the hens would be done laying their eggs. They are still keeping us supplied with plenty of eggs! I didn’t let them outside today, it’s way to windy and cold, we would have to shovel their run again, as they don’t like their feet in the snow. They are very comfortable and content in their coop. Always glad to see me because I’m giving them lots of extra healthy and nutritious treats, meal worms, homemade flock block, and some milo heads that we gathered after they harvested the field.

The goats are doing fine. They have their hay hut, which Bill uses to get over the fence into the horses hay.

Enjoy the pictures, I’m staying inside the rest of the day (maybe) cooking comfort food, old fashion pot roast with potatoes, carrots and onions and butterscotch pudding.

Farmer Days December

The beautiful Christmas season is over and we are gradually returning to everyday day winter life on the farm. It was so wonderful spending the holiday with family. May God bless us and keep us safe, healthy and happy in the days to come.

Here are a few photos from a very cold and wintery Kansas.
