Ice, Snow, and Hay

30 Dec

With the layer of ice in pasture and another dusting of snow on Wednesday, I’ve begun feeding hay.

It’s greatly appreciated.

I did also decide to shut Flower in the Love Shack.  She had lost quite a bit of fur with the copper deficiency, so she’s a bit cold with the turn in the weather.  Hopefully, it will get grown back in quickly with the copper I gave her.  In the meantime, she has room service.

Rosie (and Pretzel) are such assertive little girls, they have no problem getting in there with the big goats to eat.

Freddie is having a harder time.  I swear, since I lost Fionn, Xerxes has become a jerk.

I just make sure I put hay in lots of places so everyone can get some.

Wanda’s “leave me alone; I’m eating” look.

This is also the time of year that I am very grateful that I have electricity to all of my buildings.

I guess I’m as ready as I can be for the winter weather.  That’s good because this weekend is looking brutal cold.

    What a challenge to keep up with the herd during the winter months. Good Luck!

    It sounds like you have everything under control for the coming cold weather. Good for you!
    I’m sorry that Flower is having such problems, and I hope and pray that she will recover.
