The last weather report I heard on Friday was that we were just a little too far north to get much of anything from the storming coming. We were supposed to get a dusting or an inch.
Well, we got about 6". That's the perfect amount of snow, if you ask me.
The animals can still walk around, but it makes everything beautiful.
Except if you're a teeny bantam rooster. Especially a teeny bantam rooster that roosts in the sheep shelter instead of the chicken coop. Cogburn wasn't very happy with the snow this morning. He was all huddled up and let me walk right up to him and scoop him up. He stayed in my coat for a few minutes while I was feeding the sheep.
I think he liked it.
I put him back with the chickens, but I'm not sure he was happy with that either. The big rooster picks on him.
See that black rubber bowl? Those things are wonderful to have. They take all sorts of abuse. I am using it for the water now, because their last bowl was frozen solid. If the rubber water bowl freezes, all you have to do is turn them upside down and stomp on them. The rubber flexes and breaks the ice. Brilliant!
