Can’t wait for the first to arrive….

Here’s hoping they wait til Thursday as it is suppose to warm up here.  Winter coats still are very shaggy, but yesterday was the first time Dream started to shed…that means SPRING IS CLOSE….

Winter will fade to Spring

So we finally broke our bitter cold and on to seeing our ranch again.  We have much to clean up and brush out as we create a new pen for Abu

So as we cut we are hauling good wood to the furnace and the tops get put on the fire.

We had some wonderful help come for a couple of hours too.
