A little mud and water never hurt anyone, right? That’s Right!
Northern Wisconsin seemed to jump directly from winter to summer over the span of two or three weeks and let me tell you it was a little rough. A foot of snow on the ground at the end of April turned into 90 degree days in the middle of May. I did not adjust to the heat very well and neither did the goats. Halfway through the day I had to put them in the barn for a few hours so they could cool off. The grass was dry, crusty, and wilty and I was concerned I would not have any pasture for the animals, but it finally rained.
It rained for about a week and we needed every drop of it. So with big mud puddles in the yard and driveway the kids took advantage of it.
They played in this mud puddle for a long time and we as happy as little ducks in a new pond.
It sure was bath time when they were done though!
