Keeping Critters Warm…

 

Brrrrrrrrr, we are still having some seriously cold weather.  This was the weather report from this morning…1555586_741479072530159_2028721829_n

Our water was froze up and it was freezing in our house but outside the sheep didn’t seem to mind too much…

Good thing they are hardy Icelandic’s!  This week they’ve been getting extra hay and always have access to the barn and sheds…P1130169 P1130176-001 P1130179

The chickens don’t seem to care for it at all though…

Good thing there are lots warm sheep taxi’s to keep them warm!

BTW, our water is going again and we should be starting to warm back up!  Oh ya, we should start lambing any day now, hurry up warmer weather…

Falling…

Everyone seems to be enjoying the snowy weather we’ve had.

The sheep and dogs seem to do better in the cold than in the heat, which especially make sense with our Icelandic sheep.

Despite having a nice warm, straw lined barn to snuggle in, Dugur prefers to hang out with the sheep.

Same thing with Thor, he found out in the pasture rather than in the straw filled sheds he shares with the rams.

Sheep…

We’ve been having a lot of foggy, pea-soupish mornings this past week.

We’ve also put our breeding groups together and can expect to start lambing at a much earlier date than this past spring.
