Deep Squats


It has crossed my mind of doing a “farm fit” class.  I used to teach all sorts of dance, acting, singing and theater dealios.  Doing a deep squat to roll a hay bale over to feed the cows has the right balance of physical fitness and motivation.  It’s not about you, that herd … they are waiting for you to get the bale rolled out.  They are watching you.

The calves, Legion of Boom and Lido Shuffle, walk under the wire to check out how things are going.


This was a great bale.  They could smell it.  Cows have a great sense of smell.


We didn’t put Fremont the woodburner on until much later in the day.  As you may guess, we don’t have central heating.  If the fire doesn’t go on, you put on another sweater or in Bug the cat’s case, some Christmas wrapping paper left after Brent’s birthday.


Fire made the room nice and toasty just in time for ZZ to grab a snooze in Daddy’s black chair with Happies the bear in her pink flamenco dress from Lucy who has returned safely from Madrid.

      heh. Legion of Boom, the calf is doing very well 🙂 He’s a strong one.

      They’ve been well behaved. Good cows.

    Very high class cat. All he needs is a bow. 😉

    The wrapping paper blanket shot it cute, but the ZZ snoozing in the chair is downright adorable.
