Mother Nature gave us a little reprieve yesterday. The days was filled with blue skies, above-freezing temperatures and plentiful sunshine.
The girls enjoyed it immensely, munching hay and soaking up the sun.
Some of them were so content, you could almost get close enough to hop on their backs, before they opened their eyes to peek at you.
They laid in the snow for hours, snoozing and chewing their cud.
This girl was so relaxed, the tractor drove right by her and she didn’t even open her eyes.
Even the giant icicles started to melt.
It was so beautiful that the dog and I took a little snooze on the bench at the barn, lulled to sleep by the pitter-patter of dripping icicles. But Mother Nature is a fickle, fickle woman, because by 8am this morning…
Snow blew in with biting winds and temperatures hovering around 7 degrees and a wind chill for tonight of 20 to 35 degrees BELOW zero. Oh, what fun… (if I ever get my hands on that darn groundhog, he’s gonna pay)
