Merricat is well camouflaged between the winter grass and snow. She blends right in.
There was little grazing for the animals this morning while the snow still lay on the ground. But the sheep found something to nibble on.
I’ve closed off the north and south pastures for the winter. If the sheep and donkeys eat the grass down too low it won’t grow back as well in the spring.
But the back pasture is so big and filled with a wide variety of grasses and wildflowers, they don’t seem to ever make a dent in it. The sheep and donkeys get little nutrition from grazing this time of year, but it is still how they prefer to spend much of their time.
