    Suppose to rain something fierce tonight. My shire's are doing great with the logging work. Mitsy's leg is back to top form and she's pulling well but I'm not pushing her. My chicken building is up and running though the RIR's aren't old enough to lay yet.

The flock consists hen's of 2 White Rocks, 2 Buff Wyandottes, 3 Black Australorps, 4 Partridge Rocks, 1 Columbian, 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 4 Barred Rocks, 2 Buff Brahma's and 2 Rhode Island Reds. My two lucky Roosters are 1 Rhode Island Red and 1 Black Australorp. They have use of my first coop, which is built to hold fifty chickens.

    Ugh got lots of freezing rain and some snow last night. Gonna go check on all the animals when the sun does rise. I hope all the sheep made it threw the night. I didn't have a large enough shelter in their pen.

    The mares look beautiful. I am such a sucker for 4 whites. Do you have a lot of mud problems where you live? We have had so much rain this year (have another 2in dropping right now) that all my dirt paddocks are mud and the horses either stay in or are out on the pastures that are supposed to be recovering. Trying to prevent scratches and it has been quite the battle.

    Quote:We had ALOT of spring rain but in the summer not so much and fall was dry too. I also have 340 acres so plenty of room on moving everybody around. I do have pens next to the main barn that I keep the horses in during the winter but it doesn't get too bad.
