The Real Hairy Highlands love it! Calves are running around kicking it up. They love to challenge the tractor when I am clearing snow out from around the barn. If I cut a trail in the pasture they all go for a walk around in it. Tring to keep the snow away from the barn so spring melt won't make as much mud. Just the beging and only about 4 more months to go. Merry Chrismas to all! Mark H.

I would be rich if I could figure a way! I coverd my Fire Truck to keep the snow off it. I need to put my ladder on the side to get on top of it to open the filling lid. I also need to weld a few brackets on for the hose reel so I need the ice to stay off it for a while. It will be nice when it is done all the way, the snow makes it harder to finish! Mark H.

My sheepsies like the cold weather too. Went down to do chores the other day and my new ram, "Mutton Jeff", was playing with the tire swing I put up for the grandkids. His timing was excellent, he'd hit that sucker and watch it swing out and NAIL it when it came back. While he was waiting for the return swing, he was jumping up in the air and throwing his back legs one way and his front legs the other and just generally bouncing around like a lamb.

Sure wish I'da had a video cam...

i remember that. oh, there's nothing more comical than a dairy cow that's let out in snow. nice days we used to untie them to catch a few rays on nice days, and eventually those gals would catch a chill and get frisky. somebody would swing a head-butt and the game was on. they'd start hopping around, bellys flopping one way and bags the other. the young bullyboys would toss a coupla hooves over something twice their size and of course their hind feet would scoot out, momentarily plunking them on their butts - even the horses rolled around and had a playday - yep they sure had fun :)
thanks for reminding me mark :)

This is what I like about winter! Summer get's old and this is a break from it. No wild fires and the animals get thick coats and have fun. All ours can go inside from the weather so if they are out it is because they want to be. Got everything all cleared now for the next snow tonight! I need to pick up some more gas tomorrow for the tractor. I bet I use over 5 gals every time I clear it. Mark H.

Nice picture Mark we just got our first snow the other night and some more night before last. Wish I had thought to take the camera with us when we checked on the cattle.

Thanks it is easy for me I just stuck the camera out the upstairs window and snapped it. Just cleared out the other barn since the girls were cleaning the stalls out I pushed it to where we keep it and moved the snow for the bulls. Like to be able to get a truck to the barns you never know when a Vet may need to get to them. Mark H.
