Last week presented us with a variety pack of bad weather conditions! Most were exceptional and we couldn’t resist sharing.

These were taken at the start of the storm beginning of the week,before storm before storm2.jpg

This is what it looked like the next day,after storm3

Checkout the large ice sheets in the fields! a giant’s ice rink! IMAG1961 IMAG1958 IMAG1957

And here are our own mountains of snow where we blew the snow away to clear paths and the driveway. after storm

We didn’t get a large accumulation of snow but the wind was so strong that it blew the snow everywhere and made some impressive drifts.after storm1

We hope it was one of this season’s last storms. The sun is already warmer and we are hearing more birds during the day. Spring is not far now!!

Barn update :
Here are the two little kids we showed you last week: Belle and Daniel.
(Each year all the kids are supposed to be named using the same letter, it is a way breeders keep track. This year names will be starting with the letter D . So we shouldn’t have called the little doe Belle but she was just too cute and we broke the rule for her.)
Here are the babies having their nap,Belle and Daniel

And here are some does who are moms to be!
They are being good moms and taking a little rest. Some are due soon IMAG1922and others will have to wait a few more weeks.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this peak at things this past week.

Here in the northern hemisphere we are all getting ready for spring, and we know some of you also are getting your farms and animals ready for this important season. We’d enjoy finding out how spring is unfolding for you. Please feel free to post in the comments section, we’d love to here about what is happening in your gardens, and how your animals and birds are greeting the changing season.
