Christmas on the Farm

25 Dec

Along with wonderful food and family, Christmas on the farm means chores.



The animals want to eat no matter whether or not it’s a holiday.

I also have to check the water tank.

With a high temperature of around 10*F, you don’t want to take for granted that it will be fine.



I still seem to have some bug out there, and Muffin was the latest to fall victim.



Luckily, she’s back to eating today.  I’m very happy to see that mouth full of hay!

I’m hoping nobody else is going to get sick.

      I hope so too. The longer we stay below freezing, the more likely they are to stay healthy.

    Bugs begone!
    Hope they will freeze up in the snow!

    Hope everyone feels better!

    Yep, just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean we get a day off! 🙂
    I hope the cold weather kills off all those nasty bugs.

      Me too. Still no temps above freezing in the seven day forecast! 🙂

      Thanks. It hasn’t been anything serious, but I’d like to get past the sickness.

      We had a foot of snow last week, and it’s all still here!

    I hope that water tank was open when you checked it! Looks like all is well! 🙂

    Poor Muffin! I’m glad she’s feeling better.

    • Teresa December 26, 2012 at 9:33 am #

      Me too. I’m glad my girls have plenty of fat to get them through their bout of the tummy bug too.

    Dolly and Muffin are adorable sick or not. Hope they continue to get better.

    • Teresa December 26, 2012 at 10:09 am #

      Dolly is fine. Muffin is the only one that has been feeling under the weather, and she’s much better too!

    Hope no one else catches the bug! Hey, you have snow geese in the picture. 🙂 Who knew?

    • Teresa December 26, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

      They are Embden geese. So far we seem to all be doing well today!
