I remember a time when I didn't have a hair out of place, makeup was where it was supposed to be and I was CLEAN !! Today I mucked out 3 stalls, handled 2 cows and a buck, loved up Lamb Chop and bottle fed Daisy Mae before we hauled a truck load of hay....in the rain ! I was possitively GROATY !!! It was a bad hair day, hair was a frizz ball, T shirt filthy, jeans coated with a combination of goat, sheep chicken and horse poo ( I was lucky, I got away without cow poo) and looking quite UNdelectable, I met another english lady....a very nice English lady,...a very clean English lady who, in very polite English tradition completely ignored my lack of English properness...but I couldn't. Ever had one of those moments when you wish you could do a rewind,..I did !!! Then I remembered that those horses would go into a clean stall tonight, Molly would give us a gallon of sweet creamy milk, Macho would remember that I had treated him to a peanut or three, Destiny would think that she is in horse heaven and bless him, poor ugly little Lamb chop thinks he is the most special little lamb in the world. You know what, sitting here thinking about it, ok, I was a real mess, dirty and dischevelled but what a great day, I met some lovely people, all the animals in our charge are safe and well tonight and I scrub up pretty well. Life's good on the farm but please God, try not to make me go frizzy !
