Moving bags of animal feed is pretty easy in the summertime....
If it's just one bag, it's pretty easy to sling it over our shoulders
and carry it down the pathway to the barn.
The feed comes in 50 lb. bags.
We also have a road behind the barn....if we have lots of bags of feed
we can just open the gate and drive down this access road
right to the back of the barn.)
That is pretty much impossible to do when there is this much snow on the ground.
This is the stovepipe of the woodstove sitting outside down
at the barn. We use it to cook up feed for the Pigs.
The fencing is 4 feet high...that gives you an idea of how much snow
we have on the ground now.
Since we don't plow the access road in the wintertime (too long,
too much trouble) we're moving feed this way.
Load up the toboggan and slide it down the pathway you can see in the second picture.
It's a pretty easy chore, except for when I get to the downhill part close to the barn.
Then I have to run to avoid getting clipped by the toboggan as it is
picking up steam!
Gman was standing up by the house watching me and I could hear him yelling
"Run Annie Run!"
I may actually ride the toboggan down this pathway just once...
just to feel like a kid again!Sphere: Related Content
