I actually can't remember how my parents got me to behave.

I remember being spanked a few times when I was little...like under age 12. old.gif

Crawling about in the season of drifts of snow, buckets of ice, freezing cold, getting brighter every minute, and way crazier than usual.

That downy under coat really protects them just as down protects a chicken. 

 

Still I wonder why they prefer standing out in the snow over being inside where it is warm and dry.


Yep my girl has always had an over head ...   We do get snow here in the desert....  she would be standing out in the corner looking like a hot fudge sunday....  About two or three inches of snow on her back.

 

I been told by other draft horse owners that if you spot one without a snow on their back check to see if they have a temperature.

My chickens were afraid to come out in the snow at first.  Now, they beat me to the back door in the mornings..they have to cross a lot of snow to get there.  Had a small dust of snow fall...got my camera out for a cute shot.

 

 

Here's one of my smooth SG silkie I named Uggums because she was one ugly baby chick.  I have kids that can understand the name, because they still think she is ugly.  I adore her.

 

 

 

 

 

I see doggy foot prints too..our Ziggy's.

Up here when it snows you check to make sure the snow stays perfect on their back.

If the snow melts that means their fat layer isn't thick enough.

My goats though.... they refuse to have snow on their back....so I can't check their condition that way. hu.gif

I think if I were up there, I would just threaten to put the kid outside.... How long would it last really?

 

But then again, it's 30 degrees this morning with 22 hour wind and I am quite possibly going to freeze to death on the way to my car... hopefully it isn't frozen shut... it was thunderstorming sometime last night...
