Last night when Dad and I began chores at the Woodland Farm, the first thing we noticed was a bright sphere in the sky hovering over the barn.
With the sun setting behind us, it was a beautiful sight.
The first task to complete was watering the horse.
Then, we went to the barn to scoop out the feed for the cattle.
Then Dad fed the bulls. I fed the horse.
The heifers were all ready for their corn.
Soon it was time to hop in the Ranger and feed our second set of heifers.
The Ranger driver is pretty blind when trying to back out, so Dad directed me.
Looking east to see the moon…
…and looking west toward the sunset…
…we can see he had a difficult job. We headed back to the barn, and Dad put hay in to the bull’s pen.
While I was waiting, I looked around the barn to see old head collars and bridles.
Then, buckets were loaded for the morning.
And it was time to return the Ranger to the garage and admire the moonlit scene…
…as well as the last of the setting sun.
Slow-cooked potato and beef stew sure tasted good after those freezing temperatures.
