Chores during the Freeze

There are still a lot of chores that must done during these freezes. Ice chunks must be removed from waterers or they will freeze back solid when night comes.

Ice chunks

It is important to clean out any moist or wet feedstuff and replace it with fresh feed. Refill all waterers, inspect all animals for any health concerns, and replace any minerals that might have dissolved or blown away during the storm.

It will be spring before we know it…but in the meantime keep your eye on the clouds!

BIG Freeze in Texas

There is a saying that if you’re gonna do it …do it in a BIG Texas way!!!

This is what I would call a BIG Texas freeze!!!!

Frozen solid!!!!

Is it Thawing???

It looks like a thaw is in the making! Temperature this morning was about 10 degrees according to my outdoor thermometer…but it’s on the rise…slowly and the ice is receding….slowly…

Stay warm my fellow ranchers and keep your eye on the temperature tonight because my friend Eric Berger at spacecityweather.com says it will be cold until this weekend when we may be able to put on our shorts and sun bathe!!
