For sheep, it's all about the food and drink. All day long. Besides water which The Farmer puts into big plastic troughs, the sheep love to eat snow. They pick at it just like a kid does. The water in the trough freezes pretty quick these days. It gets tipped over and the ice gets knocked out. Then we fill it up again - it stays unfrozen long enough for everyone to get a drink.
I love when they lift their head out of the snow and look like this!
Here's another new arrival. This mama is quite old and I fear it may be her last lamb. She does look wiser than the rest, doesn't she? Her lamb got right up and hopefully he will be nursing when I return later to the barn. The Farmer is on the job making sure they all are doing as well as they can.
