Life at Cubbie Towers...

I know, I know, I've been awfully quiet these last few weeks. Well, if I said I'd been sitting around doing my nails would you believe me? Yeah, probably. Thought you'd like a few photos of what the daily chores have involved since the snow arrived...


Load the barrow up and dish the hay out to Horse and the sheep in four different fields...


Looby-Lou saying she didn't get enough hay!


Time for a pretty picture along the way...


The little lambies scramble to get a place at the hay rack...

Not sure who is keeping an eye on who...

Bloomin' ice everywhere. Look at my poor brand spanking new gutter, all iced up!!!
It's a little tricky getting water to the animals when there are liners made of solid ice inside the water barrels . This one is about 4" thick.

The road out of Cubbie Towers, two days ago, followed by the road home before the Big Thaw...


...when all the roads became flooded instead of snow-bound.

So there y'are, don't forget, get snapping with those cameras before the next lot of snow arrives...all I'm saying is there might be a category for a winter pic with no snow....that's all I'm saying, yer know what I mean?

Beautiful. Love the farm, and the animals all look very happy.
Did you thaw the water barrels?

Great photos of the farm.Water is always a problem when it is so cold, my ducks are happy again now they can splash about instead of skating on the surface :-)

Barrels are on the thaw now Darrell, but the forecast is for another chilly blast from the north on Thurs / Fri. Here we go again!

You've got ducks, Stu? Let's be having a picture then please!

Looks like Quinn the Eskimo would be right at home there at Cubbie Towers with that lot of snow! (Extra points if you know who Quinn the Eskimo is!)

Today is supposed to be the first day of Winter...looks like you have gotten an early start. Nice winter farm pics. I'm sure Quinn would get along with all the animals. Hairy Larry
