Kiddie pools, wagons, and electric fences…

Well as usual we are getting things done in the midst of chaos.  Having a toddle to help on the farm is not always super helpful believe it or not!  Our yard is littered with dog toys, kid toys (sometimes I can’t tell which is which), kiddie pools (which of course the border collie uses also) and various other items to trip over.  We are trying to get as much fence put up as possible before winter which means Henley and I are putting fence insulators on while her daddy pounds in posts.  My barn is set up so that I can enclose Henley behind the gate to the feed room keeping her put of the way of horses being shuffled from outside to their stalls.  This works well until she found out how to get the lid off the grain and taste tested most of the animal grain (sheep apparently is her favorite).  Adjusting to farming with kids is much different but the joy my kiddo experiences on this farm is worth the extra time it take me to do everything!
