We took some of the babes' birthday money and bought them barn boots. We are taking them to the barn more often to help "feed up." They take handfuls of hay to the horses and cow. They help stir in oats and corn into the sweet feed (so the horses can't just eat out the sweet feed).
Clearly it is a rough job. In the photo above, Lucia is taking a sip of my beer. Below she is drinking from the horses' water.
