No power or water in the barn meant lots of hot water bucket lugging. No heater that would work in the outdoor trough meant even more buckets of water. Got good and fit!
The winter was long and cold but way less miserable than last winter. If I had to pick I'd pick this one but I'd be happy to have a non winter too.
Hopefully this will be the only winter of buckets we endure!
We moved the chickens and bunny into the barn. Smart smart move but i am looking forward to moving Mr Randy Roo back out. He's gotten a bit, um, cocky, in the small winter run. I end up spending lots of time with a rooster tucked under my arm as i do chores to avoid my boots being battered. He hates rubber boots but with the mud around here he's having to acclimate!
