It snowed

Damn you Northern Hemispherers!! Reading your blogs about your competing and pictures of sunshine is K.I.L.L.I.N.G me. I'm soooooooo jealous. American cross country courses are beautiful, so much decoration in all the levels and I have just found Evention TV and I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with it.

So it did snow. In my head I was like if I wake up to snow on the ground I will be royally pissed. So I walked out the door to snow on the ground. When I shifted my cows they walked around on the fresh food like "Dude, we can't eat this, it's frozen". I gave them two bales of hay but they only really needed one, though better to over feed than under with pregnant dairy cows. They look like happy blimps this afternoon.

Still the snow is beautiful, and it makes for a nice change to torrential rain, it was gone by lunchtime. I still have to go out and clean and return a borrowed float in the now torrential rain! The horses have basically just had extra rugs put on and lots of hay thrown at them. They don't want to be ridden in this!

I realise its not actually that snowy compared to like proper snowy areas, but it's not that common here, and it was worse than it looks in the pictures. And I'm a sook!
This Goober is ME!!!!

Snow was already lifting on the lower parts of the farm as I finished my chores and the flurries were pretty light weight.


  1. Just remember that we have the same problem--when it's cold and miserable here, you're out showing in the sunshine. ;-)

  2. just be thankful you don't have our winters....-25c....ugghhh

  3. Wow you have the most beautiful farm!!!! Even with snow:)
