First Snow!

Yesterday we finally got visited by Old Man Winter. When it was all said and done we ended up with at least six inches, though we were expecting up to twelve. The sheep have been enjoying the colder weather and when I went out for evening feeding there was a lot of sproinging and prancing, even with the snow!

Orion can’t allow me to wander the field without being about 2 inches from my pockets, just in case I’ve brought treats out.

We removed the sides of the shelter after the high winds the last few days did some damage, but it’s still enough shelter to keep the hay snow-free.

The chickens had ZERO interest in going out in the snow.

The goats don’t much like getting wet, either.

The sun is out and it is very, very bright today.

Lucy’s been enjoying playing in the snow with the kids.

And now I’ll leave you with pictures of Samantha and Roquefort’s nightly post-feeding frolic.
