Apparently we had the storm of the century this weekend.
All I know is...
it snowed and snowed and snowed.
And then it snowed some more!
By the time all was said and done,
we had around a foot and a half...more in some spots.
It's no surprise that we spent the weekend shoveling.
I had to rescue the donkeys on Saturday in the midst of the snowstorm.
These two gals refused to leave their house...
and they certainly were not about to walk through deep snow.
(donkey photos tomorrow)
As for the horses...
It's amazing to me the difference between donkeys and horses...
especially when it comes to weather.
Perhaps donkeys are more evolved than horses...
they've acquired a bit of common sense.
Aside from the back-breaking labor that goes along snow...
it was a spectacularly beautiful weekend.
Saturday morning I found the sheep standing, snow covered in the elements.
I added more hay to their houses,
and they spent the rest of the storm indoors.
Amazingly, the snow that had accumulated on their wool did not melt.
(That's just how insulating that wool is!)
Now that they are all snow-colored, it's hard to tell who is who!
The dogs had an absolute blast running through deep snow.
They played hard and slept well this weekend.
The pigs finally emerged after I shoveled an area for them.
Fresh water given, and they promptly started eating snow!
