Snowing snowing snowing

We’ve had a lot of snow since I talked with you last.

Here’s picture of our picnic table in our north facing back yard around Thanksgiving-ish.

Here we are in the middle of January.

I haven’t ventured out to measure but I’m guessing 3-4 feet? The drifting is deceiving.

It’s snowing now.

The animals don’t seem to mind a bit. We just have to keep a constant stream of food and water available.

“Did somebody say supper’s ready?”

Here’s Willow posing for the camera. (I can’t quite manage getting a close up of her right now so we will just have to be satisfied with a fuzzy long shot ~ more info to follow on that!) She just raised her head from the important pig business she was tending to in the snow. She looks positively PACKED with piglets. She is due to farrow around the 12th of March. She was perfectly on time with her last litter so I’m assuming she will deliver her babies close to her due date again this time. Pigs are considerate like that.

“Does this baby make me look fat?”

Cows are very cold hardy. They are contented as long as they have food and water and a bit of shelter in the high wind. Cows are predictable. I like them that way. We try to feed and water them the same time everyday. It is important to have predictability when working beside a large animal like a cow. They trust us to provide for them and I don’t want to do anything that would jeopardize that trust.
