Farm Score: Spreading Bedding

This season, we’re going to try out a new series of posts called “Farm Score”.  In these posts, we’ll identify a common farm task and try to decide which song provides the best accompaniment.

In times of frustration or exhaustion, a good song can push you through even the most unsavory of tasks.  Landon and I spent much of last weekend shoveling manure, and despite our best efforts, never managed to find a song to make it more fun.

When it came time to spread the bedding, however, just the right tune came on the radio:  “Burning Down the House” by the Talking Heads.

As I was throwing hay all over the barn floor, I felt like some sort of arsonist for justice setting the stage for an epic blaze.  (I’m not sure what an “arsonist for justice” is, but I imagine it’s the good kind of arsonist.)

If you have some suggestions for our farm soundtrack, let us know in the comments below.  We’ll put them to the test.
