Tis Winter here on the farm

Winter is here as is the snow and the cold.  The donkey boys frolic during the bright moonlight nights and take innocent naps during the day.  Little do they know I watch their playful antics that they think they are getting away with. 

They are here this morning with big soulful eyes and dawn shattering brays saying, “Mom, we’re hungry where’s our morning mash?” good grief that was before the lights of the sky were turned on… maybe they are watching me as I am watching them?

Here is a fun jingle I picked up on the internet.  It is sung to the tune of Jingle Bells with a couple of words changed making it more befitting to Teamdonk!

Smashing through the snow
Heading for the barn
Counting up the joys
Of living on the farm

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

Although the snow is pretty
Donkey hoofs drum a beat
Weather doesn’t matter
They demand it’s time to eat

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

The sunset last night was charming

I hope I drained the hose

Forecast said it’s warming

Surprise again it froze

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

I pulled a bale from the loft
It narrowly missed my head
The donkeys aren’t to concerned
They are closer to being feed

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

The troughs are all frozen
My hatchet breaks the ice
It also put a hole in one
Now that’s a pretty price

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

It’s a little easier walking

Since I broke the trail before
As I head for the house
And contemplate evening chores

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

But still the scenery’s nice

And the donkey’s brays are sweet

So I may decide it’s all worthwhile

Once I thaw my feet.

 

What a hoot, lost my boot!
The snow is cold and wet
Oh what fun to slip and slide
I’ll get to that barn yet

 

Happy Holidays!
