Winter Wonderland

Guess what we woke up to this morning? Yes, snow and lots of it. We haven’t had this much snow in a few years.

??????????????????????

I believe this is all due to Rick. Both times we got snow earlier this year we were out of town and he has been whining, complaining, commenting that he really missed the snow. God heard him, because we have snow now.

??????????????????????

At least a foot of fresh powder overnight and more is still falling.

??????????????????????

The cattle don’t really seem to mind, and as long as you keep them well fed they stay warm.

??????????????????????

They also have sheds for shelter.

??????????????????????

I love the patterns the fresh snow leaves. This is the fence line on our upper pasture.

??????????????????????

The snow covered our squeeze and chute and is hanging off the fence.

??????????????????????

You can see our little ranch truck is pretty well covered.

??????????????????????

And here is our store building covered in snow.

??????????????????????

Two little snow birds on the pasture fence.

??????????????????????

Our stock trailer wearing a snow hat.

??????????????????????

The trap fence is covered too.

??????????????????????

The snow is only supposed to last a couple of days before the weather changes and it all melts off. I hope that happens; we are getting very close to calving season and it would be easier for those babies if they aren’t born in the snow.

    It really is beautiful and I love looking at your pictures and knowing that I don’t have to go out in it.

    Stoke that woodstove up! Are there heaters in the chicken coop? I remember how beautiful and serene it was, but glad I’m in Florida right now. K
