Freezing Again

There isn’t much going on around around the homestead, it’s cold and everything is freezing, if stuff is freezing  not much is growing!

Before this collapsed there were about 4 layers, it would freeze and then the horses would drink several gallons through a hole, then it would freeze again creating a new layer of ice.

Getting all the water out of hoses is never as easy as it seems it should be, I have about 300 ft of hose for this trough. Most of the water was drained but there was one pocket that froze so it took some work to get the water flowing again but it could have been much worse.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
