The past few weeks life on the ranch has been a challenge to say the least. Illness, snow, and bitter (for Colorado) temperatures have plagued us. We suffered through a week of Influenza B, lots of meds, upset stomachs from the meds, and now 5th disease. Below normal temperatures and feet of snow have quieted down the ranch. The only tasks being completed are the basics, feeding and watering my critters. Pens are covered in snow, and I'm keeping the deep litter bedding method in the shelters alive and well. Hopefully, the weather will improve soon, so I can debug the house and freshen up my shelters. Being cooped up is keeping the family sick and the critters cranky. Spring should be right around the corner, right?
