Work on Break

27 Nov

I’ve decided the good weather this Thanksgiving weekend is the perfect time for me to get caught up on hooves.

So far, I’ve managed to do twenty-nine sets of hooves.

Ostara followed her mom in, so she got hers done too!

That’s a good thing.

Moose was a pain, but they are done.

I still have more to get done.

Wanda is going to be a challenge to catch.

Hopefully, I can get most of them done before our next cold front comes through because I don’t like exposing that new hoof to the frozen ground. In the evenings, I did some knitting.

I look like an old woman with my cat and blanket and knitting.

Of course, I had my helpers.

Herbie trying to help; Rocky supervising from the bean bag.

I did finish the shawl I started quite a while ago.

I like how it turned out.

Another task I tackled over the long Thanksgiving was doing some yard work and cleaning the garden up.

The weather was nice enough to take the Ranger out.

Well, I finally pulled the tomato cages.  That’s about it.

You can hardly see them for all the weeds.

But it’s ready for winter, and whatever that might bring, now that harvest is done.  I really like seeing this–my field harvested and you can see the curves of contour planting (another way to help protect the soil from erosion).

I think I managed to get a lot done this break.

    You have really been busy!! I’m glad you took time to sit down and knit.
    Your shawl is beautiful!! Was it too much work to do again as a gift for a loved one?
    I hope you’ll be able to finish the hoof trimming before the cold weather hits. On that note – they’re predicting snow for us! Hopefully not too cold.
