Last Snow?

We hope our last snow and ice for this winter was on May 3rd... we hope!  The rivers are flooding from runoff now, but birds and even hornets abounded yesterday in sunshine and high 70's for temps.

We still haven't been able to rake straw out of pens , with its recent ice encrusting.   Yesterday Tanner did get to rake straw out of the shed, taking 11 loads away.  That is just the beginning of very late spring chores.

The annual (we hope it's only once) run in with a porcupine occurred when a helper let Zoom and Sherpa out.  They ran off for 8 hours and returned to us with faces full of quills.  Zoom spent the night in the clinic and Sherpa is still sporting a sore foot.
