Winter Wonder Land

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas season and time with loved ones!
Around here it has been cold, really cold (negative 15 around Thanksgiving), then warm and muddy, snowy and foggy. A very mixed up winter thus far. Today is a rather warm day, the snow and ice are melting, turning the little dirt visible in the driveway to mud. The creek is getting very full, I'm crossing my fingers it won't overflow its banks. That would once again wash out parts of the bottom pasture, which we had bladed and cleared. Now there is not much vegetation to slow the water down and could lead to a washed out driveway. I'm keeping my eye on the whole situation. Not that we can change Mother Nature's mind.

I love this shot of Abigail and her frosty whiskers!

Either the chickens are waiting for breakfast or a snack, or plotting their next move to getting into the warm porch.

My Christmas Tractor!! And it runs! Just got a blade for it, now I need to learn how to drive it :)

I love seeing the big old Russian olive trees covered in Pogonip!

Not too sure what RibEye and Daisy Mae thought about it tho.

Two of the boys (Bear-the paint, and Whiskey-the dun) wondering what on earth I am doing and if it may involve throwing them some more hay.

Chickens staying close to the coop on this day.

I'll have to do another post about Abigail, I have tonz of pictures of her to show ya!

  1. Love the snow pics! Your hens are hardier than mine. Mine fuss at just an inch of snow and will only leave their coop if I chase them out!


Thankx for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your little trip to the NV High Desert.
