Saturday at the ranch

Hi Beautiful cold windy snowy weather. The mules are so lucky to have
such a good warm coat. I just came back from the barn and they are
all warm and cozy eating their hay and a small ration of grain.

Reminds me of my childhood in rural southern Iowa where we lived
in the mud roads. My dad used a team of one mule and one mare called
Jack and Dolly. He could direct them with gee and haw and get up and
whoa. It was so fun and I thought I was driving them. We had no electricity only smoky old oil lamps. But us kids could see in the dark
anyway and we were never scared.
