Last day of the year today. I thought I'd post a bunch of pictures. Can't get too far behind on those or they will feel outdated and I won't get to them.

DH used the Avalanche roof tool today. I bought it last year towards the end of winter but we didn't use it. Could have used it but Dh got on the roof and shoveled . Sometimes he's just a stubborn old guy like that. 😄
Today's work convinced him that going on the roof is over rated, haha. He said it would have taken him about 8 hours up there with a shovel, but todays work was about 3.

I hitched Larka up to the hay sled yesterday evening. She is not impressed with being a working dog. She'll get used to it, I just need to remember to load my pockets with treats. She responds very well to praise, and she will walk through fire for a goody. This was just for fun and experience, as it's actually faster when I do it myself. And I don't even need a treat!

A few days ago, before we got a lot more snow, Syringa and Huckleberry were having a great time playing out in the big paddock.
It rough out there, we just did some clearing before we paneled it. So far they have done well, they know what to avoid.

That little mule can move! He is hilarious as he runs and bucks and kicks out at Syringa. I think she is amused by him also. Wish I knew how to share a Youtube. He is a total crack up.

And lastly, Crazy Angus the barn cat. He is my faithful companion when I'm outside. His favorite thing is to walk right in front of me, then collapse so I have to do some mad gymnastic moves to avoid stepping on him.

Had to go into Big Town today to drop a return off at UPS. On the way home I stopped at my local market and bought 20 avocados! At .68 each I couldn't pass that up. Gonna make and freeze guacamole. I see lots of Mexican food dinners this winter. :highfive:
