Mucking Out Shovel

It was my birthday in early December and what do you think my husband bought me? No – not flowers, nor perfume or jewellery. Yes it’s that gift that every farmer’s wife needs, the mucking out shovel! Although it was a slightly unusual birthday gift, it was needed and does come in very handy. I use the shovel twice a day to muck out the pig pens.

Have you ever been given an unusual birthday gift?
