Sonia’s Heaven – Caring for the Stables at Christmas

“Down on nice Aunt Sandy’s farm…” (sung to the tune of Old McDonald) . . . yes our Christmas was filled with activities of a different kind. When Stuart’s sister suggested house sitting their new house  (to be near the rest of our big family and host the Christmas meal) – the offer came with chores.  Sandy and Jeff have a hobby farm they built from scratch: 2 horses, 1 miniature horse,  1 donkey, 4 sheep, 8 chickens, 6 ducks, a rabbit, 3 indoor cats (and 4+ outdoor ones), 3 dogs and more… We now have new respect for the life that Sandy leads.

The kids did all the chores, attempting to get up at 6 am each day.  They were in their element. But waking up so early every day was new to the kids.  However if they were not up the mule would bray,  the horses kick the walls and the dogs bark. Cousins joined in with playtime, sleepovers, and helping with the chores. Since some supervision was required — the parents are exhausted! But it was fun.

    Thanks Alej! This was her favorite high spot, where she could keep an eye the inside and outside of the house at the same time 🙂
