When it turn cold the mud looks like this
Then it becomes hard to walk on but it is no longer slippery. Mira walks carefully toward the pasture.
I think the animals prefer the mud. I know the bird do. They do not like the cold under their feet so we put down areas of straw, here and there.
The last couple of mornings we have had HEAVY frosts.
It is so beautiful to look at but definitely difficult to maneuver through.
