Winter wonderland (PICTURE HEAVY)

 Looking out the front door.
 12" on front deck.

 The netting is heavy with snow.
 11" closer to the river. (on back of Jerry's truck)

 Magic, the tiny Romney, is a snow sheep.

 The pregnant ewes.

 Erin, Tina's 3 year old daughter.

 Magic back eating the spruce needles.
 Her 1/2 brother goes out to help.

 The old man Cloud. He is a Romney we bought from
Carolyn Terhune a few years ago. We have 2 of her ewes as well.
 Queen Victoria, Dorset. She is 13 years old.
 Look at the wind blowing the snow.

 The snow is deep enough that my buckets dragged along the path edge.
 Look at those dark clouds.
 Water bucket on the left, grain bucket on the right.
The netting is now free of snow.

7 eggs at 10 am. Only 1 needed washing.

Dyeing on a snowy day

 As you can see on the tractor, and the top of the
hoop house, we are finally getting snow.
 The boys are hiding in their hoop house, while
some of the girls are out in the snow.
Being pregnant, I am sure they are quite warm!

 What else does a sheep farmer do on a snow day?
Dye wool, wash fleece, and spin wool!
No housework here today. Maybe tomorrow...

 The rack is next to the wood furnace.
The dyed wools are a mixture of wools.
Heifer, black/brown and white, 
Border Leicester x Dorset
Lillian, brown Border Leicester x Romney
Stormy, silver Romney
Abraham, white Border Leicester x Romney

The white on the drying rack is Candace,
Jerry's favorite Horned Dorset.
I think he is also her favorite human!
