Sunday snow showers

After the past few weeks of bitter cold temperatures and gusty wind, the last few days have been something of a treat.  It’s in the twenties to low thirties and we even had some sun yesterday that made it feel a little warmer than that.  Snow showers are in the forecast for today and when I went out to do chores this morning it was coming down pretty fast.  Aside from the little poopies on the snow, the sheep and goats looked quite photogenic!

  1. Are your sheep outside all winter? I only ask because John thinks I am cruel leaving mine out, but really it is not even cold yet.. very cute pictures.. c

  2. Thanks! Yes, ours are out all winter. They have access to a greenhouse type shelter (whose gable ends are gone…). We put a tarp or two up on the movable green panels to create windbreaks. I only feed them in the greenhouse if it’s icy, sleety stuff. The goats develop a thick coat as well. I think it’s much healthier!
