Groundhog Day

Well it looks as if Wiarton Willie may have made an accurate prediction this year, judging from today's weather. We had some snow and some sunshine today and it still feels very "wintery". The dogs love the snow and were running around like a bunch of crazies: rolling and digging in the snow. Kayla prefers snow to rain, as she doesn't like to get her paws wet. Nick just doesn't care about weather, as long as his meals are on time. The sheep don't really care either, so long as there is some shelter from the wind. They are starting to shed their fleeces, so I am glad that we will be shearing in a couple of weeks. A few of the older girls have spent a good part of the winter inside. They usually bowl me over when I open the door to put out the hay, and there is no way they are coming back out again. I guess age does have priviledge. Enjoy the pics.
