Montana At It’s Finest…

Last night we had pouring rain and 40 degrees, sometime in the night it changed to snow and wind.  This morning it was brisk -30 degrees Fahrenheit!  I don’t mind the cold or snow but sure get hard on critters when we have wet conditions and then gets really cold.  I was happy to see every one fared the night alright and were anxiously awaiting breakfast this morning…

Even though he has a cozy little place to hide out in, Thor has to hang out with his guys…IMG_9199

Camera Critters
Saturday’s Critters



On Sunday, it was time to move sheep to new pasture.  Their current pasture had been grazed down pretty well.


When Mark had went to open up the gate to the new pasture he found this little guy…


It appeared to have an injured wing and we didn’t want it to get crushed by the hooves of the sheep.  It was moved several feet away, to the adjoining pasture that didn’t have grazers in it.  The kids thought it was pretty cool!


Let the moving commence, out of the old pasture, across the road…


Through the gate and into the new pasture…


Lots of tall, green grass here…


Scattering a bit, in search of goodies!





Happy Day!
