Let it Snow

Let It Snowjan 9 001As we sat at the breakfast table this morning – commenting on the incredible number of birds in the lilac tree … we began to realize …we’d got a fair load of snow last night.
Let It Snowjan 9 001 (2)Ahhhhh! A Bulldog Day! I suited up with a little weight in the box … and a shovel for those hard to reach spots. Now you might think this is a few hours of sit down work. I used to think that too.

As I circled the paddock ‘track’ she had a lot of fun running at the Bully and posing in the lane as a real imp ready to take me on. At the last minute she would jump and turn in the air and then rush at the others.
