Affected animals get sick, have reduced weight gains, reproductive problems and other issues.
In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day. I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous, and one prompted the whole exercise: I love warm February days. This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend.
