Slimey ooey-gooey farm mud
Well, this about sums up what every square inch of my farm looks like these days. Slippery, slime, ooey- gooey farm mud. And to top that off, it's Georgia clay. So everywhere I have to go looks like this. But actually this is not too bad compared to what the rest of the place looks like. I just didn't want to gross you out this early. It's pretty bad out there. And I am usually worn slap out by the time I haul hay and feed and water to goats and sheep and dogs and cats. It's worse than walking in deep sand at the beach. I really should invest in some cleats or snow shoes. Something with leverage. Something that would keep me from slipping the whole way to where I'm headed.
So I am dreaming of some really dry solid ground, really soon. I do have stepping stones and boards down on most of the paths that the sheep and goats walk on. Just because goats hate getting their feet wet. It doesn't seem to bother cute little baby goats much though. They're so much like real kids, that stop at every puddle to splash. Just a little too cute. But I am so ready for dryness.
