First Real Snow of 2010

Well after the rain, resulting in a pasture full of puddles and mud, yesterday turned into a winter wonderland.  Thankfully we received a decent amount of snow, unlike London to the west of us.  The dogs couldn't be happier.  They have dry paws and noses to the wind.  There is always something to bark at and a snowdrift to tunnel through, just because they can.  The sheep are much happier as well.  Their outer coats are frozen, but the lower layers of  wool are dry, keeping them toasty warm.  They have lots of hay to eat and snowdrifts to hide in.  I am hoping that the winds will die down a bit and that this snow will last until Christmas.  Enjoy the pics.
