THERE REALLY ISN'T ANYTHING QUITE AS AWFUL AS MUD!
Oh how I hate to slip and slide through the mud to the barn!
It seems as if we are having plenty of RAIN to keep those fields slippery!
Have you ever WALKED RIGHT OUT OF YOUR BOOT? Yep, your foot keeps moving but your boot is planted in about a half a foot of mud and it stays put. The next thing you know is that your stocking foot is landing in "gooey" mud!
The best thing I can think of in those situations is to think about SPRING!
It will come one of these days and the grass will grow and the sun will shine.
Around here, the lambs are due to begin arriving in mid March, just in time for Spring Vacation from the local schools.
I don't usually let the moms and babies out of the barn until the lambs are about a week old. They need to "mother up" with their moms and get introduced to the flock. They also need shots and their tails need to be docked.
I will post some photos of the new lambs as soon as they begin to arrive.
Meanwhile we will all live with the MUD!
