Winter is finally here!!

Well, Valery. I guess we will have a white Christmas after all. Wednesday, the 9th, we were scheduled to go to Easton, NH for goat hoof trimming. But, the weather had other plans. These are some of the pictures after the fact. We got 12" of snow here. The weatherman said it was snowing 1" per hour.

Cornelius has been such a problem child at feeding time that we have separated him from the rest of the boys. At night he goes into the lambing pen to be fed and stays there until morning. He is getting along with the rest of the boys during the day so much better, now that he doesn't have to 'protect' his food.

The boys eat in their pen, and Cornelius eats in his. Look at the size of those horns!!
My ewes headed out for hay. And then...'No!! We want back in!!' It is funny that the Dorsets all want to eat in the barn and the rest of my sheep (mainly the ones born here on the farm) all want to eat outside. They are also the ones that lie out in the snow and get covered.
