This day was probably the worst day we have had at the farm since we started.
It started out normally, the truck dying on me because of the extreme cold (I think, I hope), I prayed a lot and things seemed to be working as it warmed up a little. Because of the truck I was later getting to the farm for chores than I usually get there. When I did get there, I found what was one of biggest concerns about this little farm we’re running.
The barn roof on the end where the cattle stay was caved in from the weight of the snow pack. MAY was mooing in an unusual way and as I approached the scene it hit me like a ton of bricks – she was stuck in the barn and extremely agitated. I was so worried and scared but knowing MAY was mooing kept me sane. I was able to move a couple of the boards and metal roofing pieces and she followed me out and found ULLA who was very hungry and MAY stood very still while she nursed.
There was a few moments when I thought I might just loose my mind, but after calling Lisa and saying many prayers I calmed down enough to start thinking straight. Lisa and I made a plan and with the help of some awesome friends and great kids we were able to fix up some shelter for the cows. Hopefully things will calm down and the weather will warm up a little and we can move forward toward our goals. Please keep us in your prayers.
Here is a little video of what things looked like right after I got MAY out of the barn:
