    My goats don’t like cold water in the winter. They wait for the warm buckets to be delivered.

    The chickens lined up perfectly on a raised bed, I had to get the camera.

    Then the goats needed to be in the picture.

    This time Willow was in snuggle mood.

    There were a few places hit with snow recently. Maybe we’ll get some pictures!
    I am working on a photo illustration to the song “check the stalls with boughs of holly”... still working on it.

    We had a lot of milder weather so far, then today it is -7F.
    Goats stayed in, suntanning on their balconies. I tied new branches for them to chew the bark off.

    Brrrrr -7 would have me in hibernation ! In Central Texas we dont often get snow...when we do it doesn't last. This year we had two snow days 10 days apart. Lol. First snow was gone by night fall..second snow lingered a day or so.

    Becky Pecky's looking good. She's a very pretty chicken. What kind is she?

    Thanks! That’s why the barn is designed like that, with the sun windows. For the farmer, it is the fingers and toes that get cold.

    I shouldn’t laugh though. My partner had to move out, cause I brought a sick chicken in, and she’s allergic. She has to wear a mask to use the house facilities.

It was pretty for a while, but I would hate to live where it stays on the ground for weeks! I'm in central Texas and it doesn't snow here most years and when it does it's only an inch or two. Poor goats didn't know what to think. They just stood in the barn confused until they realized it was feeding time. However the ducks didn't seem to mind.
    ...its like they have built in snow shoes!
