Home again, home again....

Well, aside from a weeklong walkabout by our polled flock and a fence breech by the eager young Charlie Bucket, Maggie's Farm more or less survived our absence. The polled flock sure did have a big sheep party in the forbidden section of the barn though! Hay everywhere! And they ate a hardwon month's worth of bales. So, first day back, Dan was ferrying replacements up our hill in the minivan and then sledding them down to the barn. Such is life without the ATV (majorly broken) and a farm truck. It took us a full day to re-order and organize. But we are, more or less, back in gear.

One casualty of the frigid New Year was our trusty barn water pump. Hopefully, the -6 degree temperatures caused only temporary damage. If the pump is really, really, broken, we are in for a loooonnnnng, heavy winter!

And how was Florida? you ask. Well, it was just like this:

I'm glad things mostly survived while you were gone. I look forward to reading about more of your adventures.
