Over at No Winter Whining, they are wondering what our favorite thing about winter is? There are so many things we love about winter here. Sledding, wood fires, hot meals, coffee and cocoa, warm blankets, snuggling with my kids. The farm is somewhat easier to manage in some ways, parasite problems are almost non-existent and our Icelandic sheep love the cooler temperatures and the snow and we don’t have to worry about them over-heating. The sheep just kinda hang out in the main paddock and are served round bales, laze around and gestate. But one of the things that almost will always take my breath away is watching the sun come up or go down with our scenic back drop. Especially on clear days, which we have been blessed with several this past winter…
Linking up with:
That is our Dugur dog, he takes his job seriously. Even when he appears to be asleep, if something suspicious happens he is up and going quicker than a flash. Today he is busy patrolling the pasture, keeping the sheep and chickens safe…
Not only is a wonderful Livestock Guardian but a part of the family…
