Well I doubt if I'm the only one who has had enough of this cold blast. It's bad enough when you try to pick out horse poop and its frozen solid. It's like walking on que balls. Flinging it into the wheelbarrow does bring flashbacks of the pool hall in my younger years. Although, step just right and you could break an ankle. But with this extreme cold, I'm finding that my plastic dura fork won't even penetrate the pile. It seems to freeze on contact. HHmmmm....strange for such a hot manure. Forget about scraping the chickens roosts! Not even a hammer and chisel will help. Before you get 2 inches across a roost, your finger tips are blue. That's inside the thinsulate chore gloves. When you find yourself wishing..that your horse will give you a hot steamer.. while you're in the stall..just for added heat... ya know it's soo cold your brain is freezing. How do you deal with chores in the cold?
