OK QUICK...while I have internet !!!

Our internet survived the ice storm and all the snow. The weekend when things were stable? Not so much...The snow has been fun for some of us. Pretty rough for others, like my young buck, RIBS. When the barn roof collapsed on his head Saturday morning or late Friday night, breaking off one of his horns and cutting up his face , I know he was NOT digging the winter any more than I was. Jael was awesome caring for his wounds while I was driving other kiddos hither thither and yon and Charlie was working with Jon to try to salvage the barn (MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!) Some of us played in the snow, some worked hard, some of us took some fun photos, and some of us worked hard to keep a beautiful and valuable goat from hypothermia and excessive blood loss or futher trauma..............and keeping life moving while a collapsed barn was being repaired, while our boys played a rough basketball tournament.....
Life in Smith Soup is sometimes to experience a good stirring up while the pot is boiling!
Snow is not all fun and games

Malachi, younger sibs and friends all out enjoying the snow

LOVED watching Charlie take Naomi for a horse drawn sled ride

Not sure that Aslan the Golden Retriever or Dana the mini- Schnauzer liked the snow so much
These were taken from out of my bathroom window on the second floor looking out at the trees in the back yard

This is not what I planned for today. Didn't love this so much at all!! Charlie was helping Jael
to get Ribs settled down so his wounds could be assessed and dressed.

this is not what I planned on today.......... but I am so thankful that Ribs is OK and stable!!!

Oh poor Ribs. At least you were able to spring into action to take care of him. I love the horse drawn sledge photo. Max would go crazy if I asked him to do that!
