A SNOWY MORNING AT WINTERPAST FARM

it snowed in the night and this morning Farmer Mary found this odd footprint.

Quite quickly she realized it belonged to BA BA the black sheep who had crisscrossed the front yard and was greatly enjoying the snow!

BA BA had a face full of snow so he had obviously been trying to figure out if this new substance was good to eat.

The birds were all up on pens, not liking to get their feet cold. When Farmer Mary opened a pen containing ducks, the goose, and lots of chickens, only DORIS the goose ventured forth. Her feet make large webbed footprints with a bit of drag between.

BA BA had been everywhere! He is obviously loving the snow. He had spent time playing with each swing.

This odd track is just an extension cord under the snow leading to the heat lamp in the maternity pen.

Lots of buckets of really hot water (filled in the bathtub) need to be brought out to every pen and the pasture this morning, this afternoon and tonight. Sometimes the sun helps melt the frozen water. You are welcome to visit today.

BA BA had obviously spent some time this morning in front of the maternity pen asking MIDNIGHT the goat if her new son, BILLY, could come out and play. MIDNIGHT said no. After all BILLY is only two days old!
