Mud Season Monday from Drowsy Water Ranch

I know I've sort of fallen off course with the Monday at the Barn thing. Don't worry, the barn is still here. And as for life on the ranch, I'll say it has been typical for this part Colorado in April.
 Warm. 
Then Cold. 
Then sun. 
Then snow. 
You know where that leaves us? 
With mud. 
This family ranch does a Jeckyl and Hyde transformation in the next few months. From a mud covered  squishy and squashy patch of brown, to a green, blooming, beautiful mountain valley.  We're all anxiously awaiting the latter. In the meantime, we'll be here, in the mud.

Mud Season at Drowsy Water Ranch


Around Drowsy Water Ranch, you get really excited for spring. You start dreaming about flowers and budding leaves, sunshine and baby animals.  And then the sun actually starts shining, the days start warming up and what you end up with is a whole heck of a lot of M-U-D, mud, mud, mud! 

What you forget when you live in the city is that concrete and asphalt are really wonderful things. You can walk out your front door and not step in mud. You can drive your car down the road and not step in mud.
You can let your kids play outside and they won't come in covered in mud. It is unavoidable. You can't go anywhere with out returning covered in the stuff.  It gets in the car, in the house,  and probably in our food. 

You end up wishing that either it would get really cold and snow again or just heat up and dry out already. 

And in March, it could do either still. We'll just have to wait to see!
