As the weather transitions from summer to winter, the heavy barn coats move from the back of the pegs to the front, and the seasonal surprises begin.
Good barn coats have lots of pockets. Those pockets contain a history of the past year. Here is what I find:
Hand warmers still in the package.
Wrappers from hand warmers used.
Tissues, a package of new, and a few used.
Horse treats and hay chaff, lots of hay chaff.
A clicker for dog and horse training.
The running order from a sheepdog trial.
A livestock grease pencil.
A package of lettuce seeds, that doesn't surprise me.
A package of bean seeds, that does. Was it that cold when I was planting beans?
