Straw Babies

Sometimes the sun shines, but then we’re hit with another combination of snow, rain, frost, sleet, clouds, and wind. No sooner do some of the early season grasses try to green up then another wintery assault turns them an olive-tinged purple. The trees are still bare, the fields are still brown, and the ground is mucky, sodden, or sticky, depending where one steps.

Over the course of the past five weeks since the calves started coming, we’ve spread literally tons of straw bedding to keep them off the mud and snow as much as possible.

If this soggy weather trend continues much longer, perhaps we’ll have to consider raising ducks or pigs!

“He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.”
–PSALM 40:2 (NASB)
