… for a while! We are well into our first l…o…n…g thaw. I knew this was coming. With each new ice storm or quick melt I was spreading wood chips and manure in order to give the donkeys some traction to move around. I wondered what that would look like come spring. It is quite amazing to watch (bothersome to clean up). Each hour or so a completely new layer of chips and manure would become exposed as another layer of ice disappeared. I just kept raking in circles … always coming back to new piles! Cue the Alfred Hitchcock music that goes with that ever lengthening hallway! Ha!
