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!

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!! Yes, these Indian Paintbrush are blooming along the road! They are usually the first sign of Spring but my calendar says January 1, 2022! What will the groundhog have to say about this?

I hope that you have a wonderful 2022. May God bless you and give you peace and strength throughout the year!

A Beautiful Spring Afternoon!!!!

This has been a beautiful spring afternoon! The temperature has been so pleasant at around 63 degrees F and the sun is peeking out from the clouds. I pray that you are enjoying a wonderful day!

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!!!!

Sweet Rain…Brings Sweet Grass…

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!!

A Snowy Texas Home on the Range!

Preparing for Hurricane Harvey!!

Preparing for a hurricane is no easy task!!! All loose objects must be secured….and all animals sheltered!


The goats have given me their approval!! They love being able to hang out in the barn!

It Must Be Spring!! Go Figure!!

My fig tree is in full leaf-out mode!! My peaches are NOT!!!

 

Usually my peaches bloom before the fig…what could this mean???


 Texas is always know for that last minute frost in April…I am praying that the groundhog got it wrong for once in its life!! But, I have blankets at the ready just in case…

March…..

If March comes in like a lamb then it will go out like a lion!
