Transitioning to Spring on the Farm

Winter chores and Spring/Summer chores change with the season. Winter shores include winter hay feeding, running animals up out of the weather, and making sure all water is thawed. Winter time on the farm is hard work.

I am glad to see spring on its way.  I look forward to the days when I don’t need to carry an ax to break ice, a knife to cut bale stings, and all the heavy layers of clothes. I stress when its cold, thinking about the welfare of the animals. Do they need more hay, are they staying out of the wind, and is the rain/snow making them cold. The warm rays of sunshine relieves stress in so many ways. One day soon I will lay in the grass and soak some rays up instead of dealing with old man winter!
