the 2009 Winter Farm Olympics

Forget joining a gym—if you want some good weight-bearing and aerobic exercise, come over here for a day. Events include:

• the 56 Gallon Water Haul
• 2 Inch and 4 Inch Ice Chopping challenge
• the Load-the-Porch-With-Firewood-Before-it-Starts-Snowing challenge
• the Hop-the-Fence-to-Get-Hay-Before-the-Ram-Notices-You relay

Water hauling is one of those things that I just can't put a happy face on about. It's really a lot of work when the water troughs and buckets freeze up. It easily takes an hour a day to chip, chop, dump and replace. Happily, today it is above freezing!
