When I came out for the evening feeding, she was lying down and getting up, and lying down and getting up, sitting down like a dog, kicking at her stomach with a back hoof, etc. and she wouldn't eat.
Yes, we had a dusting once before, but this is the first real decent snow for the lambs. They didn't quite know what to think, but then they went heels-up! We got about 5 inches on New Year's Day with some drifts approaching a foot.
Even though we are in the throes of winter now, the days are already getting longer. Yes, it's cold. The stock ponds are frozen over. It can be very dreary and monochromatic this time of the year. No, we haven't had any good ice storms or blizzards, yet. However, I've already seen the light at the end of the tunnel!
We've decorated with sheep this year... Merry Christmas!
When you get the winter blues, watch this!
I cleared the summer weeds and grass out of my low tunnel and planted a fall garden on September 18. The tunnel is roughly 25 feet long and sporting 6 mil poly. I thought I'd take you for a tour and show you how things are growing!
