a story of Southern agriculture

the EYE of a Southern snow storm

 

 

 

My Farmer told me I couldn’t drive Tuesday…

snow 14-12

…say what, mister?

 

It must have been messy out there because
1.) he rarely tells me I can’t do something
2.) his Midwest sensibilities usually scoff at my Southern concerns about traction and milk/bread stashes.

He actually stopped at the gas station nearby and picked up a gallon himself late Tuesday morning.  Then, while he was putting it in the fridge, he told me not to go out driving.  

Just. plain. flabbergasting.

So, I stayed put, helped feed the cows and took a few pictures.

Be warm,
Emily Grace

Where doth donkey end and pasture begin?
He was a hard one to find…

…now finding this one was a little more black and white. 🙂

 

Sorry to be tacky, but I thought posting this picture would be suitable...since y'all need to know stepping on frozen patties isn't at all like fresh ones.

You need to know these things. 🙂

Of course, I’m only tacky on a need-to-know basis.

She’s dreaming of the hay in this barn.

The other cows are jealous that she has hay.  What they don't realize is she's in the "infirmary" so her hoof will get better. You know, cold weather helps reduce inflammation and chance of infection.   She'll be better in no time!

Buddy likes snow.
Buddy also likes heated trucks.

The bovine version of lining up to buy "milk and bread at the gas station"

These two are the equine and bovine version of lining up to buy “milk and bread at the gas station.”

 

He may just be considering a cab tractor purchase right now. :)

      It all starts with the cell phone. The last smart phone I had – bah! – couldn’t post those pics at all. New phone – much better.

    Oh so fun! Love the close up features of a donkey 😉 and I love the picture from inside the barn looking at the cow munching hay. Artistic
