And by snowed I mean we got a good old fashion blizzard!
Here on our farm we ended up with at least 15 inches. Which really is all that terrible, it was the 30-40 mph hour winds that were the kicker. I felt like I was living in Northwest Kansas and well I'm not a fan of the wind!
We knew all this nastiness was suppose to be heading our way so Caleb and I did a lot of praying, that God would not only spare us from getting any ice in this storm, but also that he would watch out for our cattle and that we wouldn't have any little ones born in this nasty mess.
And he sure did answer our prayers because we were spared from the ice and sleet that fell south of us as well as our cattle might have been covered in snow, but the only newborns we had were born the day before all this mess came our way.
I can't talk long, cause I have to get out and help Caleb get our cattle fed today, but here are some pictures from our outing yesterday.
Our cattle went from black to white over night.
We unroll hay in each one of our pastures so everybody can get a bite to eat as well as a nice place to lay
We also count each group to make sure everyone is there and in this group there was one missing and that makes us sick to our stomach thinking that she's out somewhere having a baby.
But in this case it was the momma who had a baby the day before and both were fine, they were just hanging out away from the group.
So we loaded the baby on the back of the truck and drove over to where we put the hay out, gave the little guy a tag...
These little guys are the main reason we go out and do what we do on days like this. It's to make sure they are taken care of and have a nice place to lay down, and boy do they appreciate it.
Chores didn't take much longer than usually, by the time we got the last pasture fed the drifts were getting pretty deep and we were ready to get in the house and stay!!!
This was the look out our front door later in the day when the snow was coming down at a rate of 3-5 inches an hour.
I hope all of you are safe and warm at home and if you got any of this nastiness stay home if you can cause not only are the roads still a mess but it's bitterly cold out there too. With that being said I need to get out and help Caleb with the feeding today.
Lots of Love,
