Weathering the weather

Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot.
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we
Like it or not!

(You all knew this little rhyme from childhood, right?)

Only 5 below this a.m. and the report on the barn critters is that Shetland Sheep are impervious to cold weather, horsies have frosty muzzles, hens have turned tail, ducks are tucking in and the goats NEVER enjoy the windchill.  Indoor pets have been enjoying luxurious sunny naps on the couches, yet spring into action to run around in the brisk outdoors whenever there are chores to be done.  I’ve been dosing on Vitamin D & lots of hot tea to help with the deep-winter slow down, getting excited for what is around the corner.

Enjoy the cold day photos from the farm, thanks for popping by!

Rear View of our little white leghorn - she peeked out into the cold, cold morning and then turned around fast to go back into the coop!

Izzy had a frosty muzzle, too, but not too frosty to enjoy some peppermints after her breakfast.

  1. Everyone looks well cared for and comfortable. We project our discomforts when the fact of the matter is that, as long as their bellies are full, none of them really bothers about the cold too much. Except, of course, for the chickens … they hate the cold stuff on their feet! We’re anticipating a bit of a thaw next week but I’m not sure that it’ll arrive in time for your event on Saturday. Please take care and stay close to the safety folks. I hope you intend to post some images as certifiable proof. D
