We had a light dusting of snow overnight. A pretty rare occurrence in our usually mild climate. It was a first for many of the animals on the “ranch”, and I don’t think any of them appreciated it one bit!

At 9am it was still only 24 degrees, so I had to haul hot water from the house to help soften up the ice on the water troughs enough to break it up.

Here are a few pictures from this morning.

  1. Well, they look fat and wooly enough to survive it. Lucky you…only a dusting…we have had nearly 4 feet in the last ten days. 😦

  2. Nice looking animals you have there!

    I have been enjoying reading through your blog for some time now so I thought I would tell you about a homesteading, emergency preparedness, and survival forum that I am a member of, http://www.PreparedSociety.com. It has a ton of great information on simple and frugal living, green living, financial insight, gardening, livestock, food storage, natural health and medicine, and much more!

    I’m sure the members of the forum would love to hear from you! It’s free and easy to sign up.

    Hope to see you there!
