We got the much anticipated snow today. It started about 9 AM and is still coming down. Wet heavy snow..much needed as we have had a dry winter thus far.
Miss Molly is loving it. She is out there running in the snow..skidding around on it , only thing she did not do was roll in it. I thought she might but it was Don Q that decided that was the thing to do. He is now a mud and snow coated donkey. Pretty white coat with gray markings and a brownish top coating..ahh tis his frosting! He has not been as playful with this snow as he was with others but then I have been inside close to the fire most of the day.
Pups look out there , then look at me! Mum , we got short lil legs do we HAVE to go out!
El meanie me...Get out there and do your job!! So they go. Poo Pup anticipates each step, carefully lifting and setting each foot down as if walking on coals! I think she is getting a lil achy arthritis as she doesn't bounce up and down the steps like she once did. She doesn't whine or flinch , no signs of pain, just my observance of her gait and step patterns. I do not like to see my girls showing signs of getting older, it makes me sad.
By the time I went to the barn, fed and threw hay the snow had filled in my foot tracks as if I had never even been there. Coming down pretty steady indeed.
So glad we got the shopping and grocery business taken care of !
Now about time to tuck in...ya'al have a great weekend.
