I love morning chores around Tailspin Farms. They get me up and moving. I love having animals to care for, because they constantly pull me towards motion and life, both when I can most enjoy it and when I most need it.
What are the chores, you ask?
Most days, that is, each and every day begins with chores at 5:30 a.m. [and repeats itself generally on a 12-hour cycle]. The 5:30 a.m. time-slot began when I started getting up to make my husband coffee in the mornings before he goes to work. Animals like and appreciate routine. They’re accustomed to a regular schedule. Whether chickens, dairy goats, horses, rabbits or other ‘pet’, they intuitively know when it’s feeding time. I’m sure if you have a dog or cat, you can certainly relate to this phenomenon!
The first barnyard animal to eat is the chickens. Our chickens are free range. They all come running when they see me headed to the barnyard. With the chickens taken care of so, they are not under foot. 🙂 The horses are next to get their grain. All of the horses knows which stall they belong in. After they are all put in their stall then they get their grain. Next on the list is our goats. They all get their grain and hay. But, before grain the does that get milked are tied up to wait their turn to be milked. While I’m milking the girls they get their grain. 🙂 Love my girls!!. Take milk to house, strain, and put in fridge. Now off to the rabbit barn to take care of all the rabbits. Check all the animals water and fill all waters.
I clean the horses stalls, goat pens, and chicken pen one day then the next day the rabbit barn. Then the next day it all starts over again.
That is if my critters are cooperating with me…LOL!!!!

After all my outside chores are taken care of it’s time to take care of my inside chores. You have to love this life 🙂 🙂 !!!!
