Now there’s no question about whether or not to feed the sheep and donkeys hay. Last night’s thick layer of snow covered what was left of the grass in an icy mix.
This hasn’t stopped the animals from grazing where the sun has melted some of the snow, but now the clouds are moving in and it’s supposed to be cold for the next few days so I think most of the pastures will be covered for a while.
We let Fate in the barnyard for the first time since she cut her foot running last Friday. Her wound looks healed to me, but we’ll bring her to the Vet this afternoon to have the staples removed.
Although we didn’t let her run a lot, she seemed relieved to be back to her sheep.
