Here in VA, I usually visit monthly. In past years I've stayed in the water, but this year I have hauled. I'll still visit monthly as there are several projects I'll be doing.

We use those to keep the cows warm in the winter...keeps the milk from freezing and turning into ice cream...(they are easier to milk that way)

Every time I step outside, she's 15' away. No, I mean every time. If I'm not on her, she's by my side.
