After a very, very mild January, we finally had a much anticipated snowstorm over the weekend. Despite the windchills of -10, the sheep were quite happy with the weather. For the most part, they were content to remain out in the snow, and rarely sought the shelter of the barn.
Getting where you wanted to go was a bit of a challenge, as our road was not plowed until the storm was over, but we made it out and then down the old barn lane and back with a Ranger load of hay. And of course that made everyone happy.
The only place that coming and going proved to be a real problem was in the barnyard. The traffic snarl was a common occurance as no one wanted to veer off the beaten path.
