We have had over 52 inches of snow so far this year so to get to the animals we have had to make trails through the snow. If one keeps walking the same path an ice trail builds up, but one step either way off the trail and you will find yourself up to your knees in snow.
Notice the trail on the trail, looks like someone else has been using these to get around.
Addison and the rest of the goats hate the snow, but every so often she gets the urge to run around. When that happens I just let her loose on the trails and she just runs and runs. The rest of her herd joins in and it leads great winter fun.
I don't know what has gotten into the chickens but we got 7 eggs today from 8 laying hens, a new record!
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.
