Weathering the weather

Agriculture and Forestry Business Farm Livestock nature Outdoors Scotland sheep Shetland Shetland Sheep weather winter

Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot.
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we
Like it or not!

(You all knew this little rhyme from childhood, right?)

Only 5 below this a.m. and the report on the barn critters is that Shetland Sheep are impervious to cold weather, horsies have frosty muzzles, hens have turned tail, ducks are tucking in and the goats NEVER enjoy the windchill.  Indoor pets have been enjoying luxurious sunny naps on the couches, yet spring into action to run around in the brisk outdoors whenever there are chores to be done.  I’ve been dosing on Vitamin D & lots of hot tea to help with the deep-winter slow down, getting excited for what is around the corner.

Enjoy the cold day photos from the farm, thanks for popping by!

Izzy had a frosty muzzle, too, but not too frosty to enjoy some peppermints after her breakfast.
