Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Just power through it

My chest cold has climbed into my face, so now my nose is actually running. That is, it is dripping nonstop down my face if I don't hold a tissue to it to stop the flow. Which made doing goat chores a tad challenging... until I hit that point when I just didn't care anymore. The backs of my gloves were soaking wet from my face before I was done, but then I was completely done and could go inside and steam in the shower.

It was 19 degrees and blowing snow when I got home at 4:30 this afternoon. I certainly was not going to wait for it to get colder and more miserable out for all of us before I took the goats their hay and warm water. So I just tucked my chin down and faced the wind. I took much-appreciated warm water to the front goats, changed the water for the back goats, put out two and a half bales of hay, and repeatedly told the llama to get the heck out of the way from where he was standing width-wise across the stall door.
