Aw geez Moers...Pretty but YUCK! It's tooo early! Normally this weather doesn't hit till January...
We just got the cold snap too...hopefully your goats have their winter coats. My are having a rough time. Their coats haven't fluffed up yet. It went from 80* to 20's and I've had to hang heat lamps in all 3 shelters and put a heater in with the younger ones. Two I've got inside the house, one with a fever.

Jeez, I hope all your goats will be ok!
We had snow again, but it’s warm (around 32F), so it was wet snow.
I dried mine all off, even though they weren’t really wet. They enjoyed the rub down. At least they have their winter coats.
Good luck to you all in the cold south!

Yes..mine are huddled in their homes..enjoying the warm dry hay. But outside is treacherous. I locked them in tonight. I dont want them getting wet and its 27° and dropping. So tonight
.they will be dry and hopefully this 3rd ice storm will be short lived and gone. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Ah... we had that ice storm on Saturday (only the ice was a lot thicker here in the mountains--our pines were completely white like flocked Christmas trees). So I guess we must've sent it your way! Happy birthday I guess? :p

If this is the same storm we had, don't be surprised if you wake up to some snow tomorrow morning.

He seems to be feeling better thanks. Just noticed sleet hitting here but it's 37* so hopefully it doesn't stick. I hope your power stays on. It's really weird that it's hitting this early I hope we're not in for a horrible winter.
I haven't looked in my Farmers Almanac yet but I guess it's time to dig it out. I usually wait for the time change.....
