It was a beautiful morning. It was cold, but not too cold. Sunny, but not at all windy. All and all, a perfect day to do my daily barn chores, and then walk the dog. I have finally learned to juggle the leash, the camera, and this new dog!
The dog, by the way, has not had her bath yet. It's been too cold, so she gets brushed and then goes for a good roll in the snow. Anyway, that seems to be working, at least until the muddy season hits. Hopefully by then it'll be warm enough to soap her up and give her the scrubbing that she has earned!
So, here's my morning in photos. I decided that it's about time to show my blogging friends that life goes on... Same place, same daily chores, different DOG ... but as you would guess, she's starting to grow on us.

Not sure she'll ever be trusted leash-free.

Good Morning Rhett
Cleaned stalls and shut doors
Polly patiently waits until the coast is clear and clean ...
and then lets fly with a steaming-hot new pile for me!
The barn winter ready ...
Blankets off and time for the "DOG WALK"
Let me add that on a day like today, I enjoy it more than she does.
Yesterday we took the dog for a Red rock walk and came home with mud all over, so today may be BATH DAY!I'll let you know how THAT turns out, and we'll see who gets the bath!
We also finished the hardwood floor in the kitchen yesterday. The tricky part was getting the refrigerator out and up onto the new floor without the help of an 800 pound gorilla! It took a little ingenuity and time. Now it's on to baseboard and kick plate building.
What do you get when you mix a muddy dog with a new floor?
