All I Want For Christmas ...
The ewes are wintering on a different paddock from last year and we let them chose their shelter and once again they placed themselves into the heart of slough bed ringed with trees. It’s a long and narrow space with hill slopes on three sides. It’s mouth faces North so the ewes have settled themselves well inside the shelter. They even have side door exits on this space.

Incredibly the ewes still go off and paw in the snow for the last bits of frozen grass. My gosh they are resourceful creatures and I deeply admire that, perhaps because Allen and I are a bit resourceful ourselves. Nonetheless, I'm still going to hold out for having a vehicle with a cab one day.
