Finally, at last, it looks like Spring is on it's way!
First, there were areas or snow melting around the trees, on our roofs, around the barns. Then appeared areas of brown earth and dead grass where once was snow. It seems that now the thaw is upon us!
Once again, the ducks are making there way down to the pond, instead of lingering moodily around the barn. And the goats are boldly venturing up to the hillside, where previously they'd just hang around, bleating in the loafing shed.
And Barnaby the cow is very happy to see the snow on it's way out; he doesn't like it one bit!
The horses are starting to shed their winter layers too, as you can see by the state of the coats on our two mini horses.
Everywhere there is mud. But that's OK because soon there will be grass on the ground, and blossom on the trees. It's only been three month's since the first snows fell, but it seems like a lifetime. And now, Spring is but a stone's throw away.
