|Teeny dog thinks it sucks too.|
O'dark thirty -- alarm goes off. Kick dogs outside, layer up and grab my headlight. Let the dogs in, head outside for chores. Toss feed to the horses, mix feed for the goats, grab hay and hike out to their pen. Then fill bucket of water for the chickens, sling some grain for them. By this point, usually the horses are done eating, so I can turn them out. Head back inside, feed the dogs, then hop in the shower and get ready for work.
|Worth it when your horses look like this though, right?|

Mostly, I spend a lot of time praying for the days to get longer and temps above freezing! How about you? How does your routine change between seasons as we head for the shortest days of the year?
