Checked on the ewes this morning.
It looks like they hunkered down in the same spot for the night- still covered in snow blending in with the landscape.
The Tunis were up and around but didn't manage to rid themselves of all the snow.
Mike likes to comment on how tough they are. You go out after a wintry night, find them covered in snow. You get a little worried expecting them to be half frozen-you poke at them to make sure they really are okay- they look up at you annoyed...
We have had people ask why we don't bring them in. We could leave the barn doors open and they would choose to stay outside. When we know that it is going to be really bad weather we bring them in the barnyard so they at least have some wind break.
Last night wasn't that bad just a little snow and wind.
I have to agree they are some tough ladies.
You just have to love that wool in the winter.
