The big blizzard stalled out south of us so we didn't get any snow this weekend. In Minneapolis they got almost 24", so much that the roof of the MetroDome collapsed. Unfortunately the bitter cold didn't miss us, it has been almost 20* degrees below zero each of the past two nights. Gardenia doesn't look too cold.
I took Ohiofarmgirls advice about smaller more frequent feedings. From my experience I think the sheep like pretty much anything that has to do with "feedings".
Alder (middle) really enjoys being with the girls but is very leery whenever either myself or the Commander enters into the sheep area. I think he is worried that we are going to swap him out like we did Killarney!
The cold doesn't seem to faze Honey the House chicken. She still has the bandage still on her leg but I haven't noticed her limping one bit. The chickens really enjoy the hay leavings from the sheep, they dig around in it until it becomes dust.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
