    I hate mud!!!!!!!!!

    My Goats revolve around their feeder, and because it's a square box with slants to put their heads through, there is like 2 inchs of water/manure mixture all around the box and so today I started hauling large stones in there by hand . . . . :roll: I'm not done yet and it looks awful, but their feet are dry atleast.
    and then the gateway is flooded because my dad had a skidloader goin' through there and so it's like a mud puddle right by the gate and it drives me nuts!



    I would put them in my other pen, but my horse is currently residing in the shelter there.

    I hate mud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry:

    It's that way here now....and when Candy brought her girls she was nice enough to also bring some "pavers"....I have them laid as stepping stones from the gate to the door and then to the water bucket...my girls absolutely hate mud!

    We don't have mud because its too cold for it! It is freezing up here, I hate it.
    I'd take mud over cold & snow anyday.

    We don't have too much of a problem with mud here. . . . but it's raining a lot today. :sigh: So, no doubt that'll change some.

    Hey, that reminds me of when we were feeding some cattle at another ranch once. Big, huge piles of mud (about 1 1/2 feet deep, it was bad!) My boot got stuck and I tried to pull it out and ended up taking out my whole foot, then losing balance and falling forwards in the mud. How embarrassing! Thankfully, it was only my cousin around, she doesn't mind my idiotic nature. :)

    Yep, good times. ;)
