Things Are Slow At the Moment

We’re not especially covered up with farm work at the moment due to the very wet weather and cold winds.  As most farms are this time of year, we normally would be working on fences, cutting next years firewood, trimming damaged trees and pruning fruit trees.    All of that work is not being completed now because we can’t get anywhere on the farm for the mud.  It’s so easy to get hung up even feeding the cattle.  When I go to the henhouse in the afternoon I wear my knee top rubber boots and the mud is so slimy and thick that it tries to suck my boots off.  The ducks have issues getting to and from their water sources and the chickens stay close to the henhouse because their feet get caked with mud!  We’ve had record rainfall and this week is loaded with more rain, ice and snow.  We’re very anxious about this due to 14 heifers (cow that hasn’t had a calf) due to deliver beginning today.
