It was a really really cold January, but not a lot of snow. Then February came, still cold. Calving began. We moved feeding to the afternoon this year. That made for an inconvenient schedule in some regards, but what was great is that occasionally the kids got to go out and feed with Ben. Our friends Joe, Kara, Alec and Andy joined us one afternoon too.
We even got a picture of all four of us... a rare thing indeed!
Not too long after this, Ben hurt his back loading hay. He was really out of commission for two weeks. It was a tough winter that really made us question our choices and look at all our options.
