Hubby has been asking for help a couple afternoons this past week. In preparation for bringing the cattle in from pasture, he has been bringing big buckets of sand from the sandpit out back to put in front of the barn door. The ground by door the cattle use is always muddy from the rain runoff from the roof. When the cattle come in and out, they churn it up, making it even muddier.
And I do mean big buckets of sand. I was on electric fence detail, hooking and unhooking the gate. (Unplugged at the time.) Even though it was sunny that day, the wind was frigid.
We finished up today with another five buckets. Not so sunny. Equally cold.
The cattle were not impressed.
