It started to snow sometime after 1 am last night. I woke up around 5 and looked outside to see a blanket of white. We got about 2 1/2 inches and while it stopped for a while, it has started to snow again! It sure is beautiful. The dogs all slept inside last night. I was able to drag Thunder out when I went to feed the chickens. He tried to come back in but once outside he ran and frolicked and seemed to enjoy himself. The Hens have refused to come out of their coop. They free range and generally don’t eat much “commercial” feed because they get all they need from the land but I did put some feed out for them and an extra helping of scratch grain and cracked corn. They still didn’t budge! The chicks (almost 4 months now!) seemed weary of the snow but a few ventured out when tempted with scratch. The cats were hungry but we ran out of cat food yesterday. I put dog food in their bowl and they turned up their noses. We’re “snowed in” and it’s Sunday, so in my opinion beggars can’t be choosers! The horses never seem fazed by the snow. I do love the way the snow looks on their fur (hair?). Snow! It’s beautiful!
