Last week had us running from field to field to get the animals secure for the onslaught of freezing cold. Our best insulator, hay, was piled up everywhere. Some animals used it for feed…
While others nestled right in like sardines to keep warm…
The dogs kept watch by day, but took shelter under the hay wagons and in the trees at night.
Colin, Courtney and Brett were out early to check on the herds each morning.
We all appreciated the sun, and various wildlife seemed to appear out of nowhere.
We got a vocal reception from the sheep below.
After some serious temperature swings, we seem to be settling back into a regular pattern for February. Here is Brett taking a leisurely stroll to visit the animals last weekend with a next generation farmer for the ride!
