Winterizing on the Farm

Gracie Pearl felt the need to protect her horse Midnight from the cold today. Notice the feed bucket in the bottom of the picture. Yes, this horse gets fed regularly.
I like Daddy's favorite comment, "Pearl that poor horse looks TIRE-D!"

We spent the morning shopping at Tractor Supply for chick feed, a feeder, waterer, bedding, heat lamp, and all the trimmings. Now, we'll spend what's left of the morning constructing a brooder box/ chicken coop... and I'm sure with Daddy on the job it'll be quite a project! We candled our 20 eggs again on Thursday and they all seem to have something in them, but it remains to be seen how many will actually hatch. Hatch Day is Tuesday, so we'll see how that goes. One things for sure, I think we've ALL gotten a bit carried away with this science project!
