A Reprieve in the Weather

A couple of the barn cats grab some sun!

The Chickens grabbing some rays and a dust bath!

The Goatlings get out and about.
We've had a nasty cold snap for November: the kind of temperatures we'd accept in January just seem so wrong right now.  All the animals, and us, have been huddled in our respect homes for a few days but yesterday turned into a beautiful day.  Winnipeg set a record high and Brandon
I thought the sunflower heads were for the birds but...
came close!  Time to get out and enjoy, and get some of those last chores crossed of the 'to do' list.  Farmer Man still has firewood to collect and is still gathering wood for fence posts from our shelter belt.  A good time to let the goats do a little free-ranging while he could keep an eye on them!  Everyone soaked up a few rays and enjoyed it immensely.

  1. Goats just make me laugh. Is he eating a dried sunflower? Seems like it's always such a rush at this time of year trying to get those last chores done before the bad weather hits. Glad you had a break to get outside. We got hit with snow this week but it lasted only a couple days. A good reminder for us to finish our orchard clean up.
