Warmer weather and winds have turned this ranch into a skating rink! Man, it is slippery out there. When I drove the team and wagon up to feed today, I walked alongside so as to get some exercise and it was the pits. Slipped and slid and finally gave up and rode on the wagon. At least the team have non slip shoes on so it doesn’t bother them much as long as there isn’t snow balled up on their feet. Now I know why they used to use long caulks on the winter shoes.
Supposed to stay in the 40’s and 50’s most of this week. Maybe it will soak a little of this ice into the ground. I see we have water standing in the road ditches. Probably have water running in the next day or two.
