Spring Cleanup

It seems that Spring is here to stay, although we'll probably get some more snow. Our trails have been melted for about a week now. Last year we still had useable trails on March 28th.

Today two helpers were here undertaking the huge task of removing the winter straw from pens.
They did a great job and only have three pens left to tackle next Saturday. We leave the straw in the houses for a bit longer.

We also had our first wood tick today. It appears that Spring isn't kidding, it's here. Trees and bushes are budding, grass is growing, ground squirrels are tunneling, dogs are digging craters.

We also started hauling boulders today to fill the freshly dug and tunneled holes.
