Winter Morning Chores

The above is kind of a pictorial account of doing chores in the winter morning. First I visit the chickens and get their water, the usually the ducks and turkeys get a visit, but today the cows were ready for breakfast and I had to feed them. Then, of course, right on cue, the goats chime in so I need to take care of them. The ducks are usually ready to stretch their legs, so I let them out. When it's snowy, they like to run up the little hill and squat down and eat snow. The turkeys like the colder weather and do more strutting about and gobbling ... oh, wait, they strut and gobble all the time anyway. They do like the snow more than the chickens. Those birds won't even come out!
