-- I took two of the buck goat kids back to the vet for some touch-up work on their horns. I caught the two kids and put them in the crate in the back of the pickup. They bawled and screamed and shouted, and it really upset Cracker, our outside dog. So much so, that as I drove out of the driveway and down the road, with the kids screaming in the back of the truck, Cracker chased me. I rounded a bend and waited for a couple of minutes but did not see him, so I drove on, slower than my usual pace, and I stopped about 3/4 of a mile from home to fix the not-shut-all-the-way passenger door. As I got out of the driver's seat, I saw Cracker come around the corner and run toward me down the road, ears flopping and tongue lolling out of his mouth. He was tired out but he was giving it all he had.
-- The snow has melted - most of it, anyway. The horses are back out in the hayfield grazing. The water troughs and buckets and hoses have thawed. The animals are happy, I am happy. What a winter this has been! We are expecting a lovely weekend and might even hit the 70's next week. I hope that's the last of the snow.
