Snow On The Donkey Whisperer Farm

A few precious photos of our little farm blanketed in snow.

The damp and cold does not play well with the large surgically installed screws in my pelvis. I miss snow shoeing, and playing in the snow.

After weeks and months of gray and rain the snow seems to brighten everything up in the Pacific Northwest.

Old man winter brings more work on the farm as the hose freezes, forcing water to be hand carried.  Horse and donkey poop freezes and sticks deeply into the ground it’s really the only time the poop is not picked up twice a day on our little farm.

Does not matter as when the snow melts the poop seems to be everywhere making more work playing catch up. 

Blankets need to be added and changed and well winter on the farm is a bit more work but each step is a blessing.

Never forget how blessed you are if you get to live on a farm with animals.

Remember horses and donkeys like warm water so get a heated bucket for their barns make sure they can’t bite the cord.

I want to say “Thank you honey” my husband comes home after working hard all day at his job it’s dark outside now.  He put’s his head lamp on so he can find the donkey and horse poop he is the best husband a woman could ask for.  My husband Scott does all the heavy lifting for me and well my husband has made it possible for me to keep my little farm in the midst of trauma and a permanent disability.  My husband is my human angel!

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

    Loved the photos. We just had our first snow here and below freezing temperatures. We’ll take more snow anytime as we’re in a severe drought, so send it our way if you get any extra.

      Hi Nancy,

      Thank GOD we have not had any snow this year. The weather in the Pacific Northwest, Washington is mild this year still got to get thru the next 90 days as we have had some snow in April some years. This weather is a bit easier than the last few years for sure. Where in the world do you live?
