This morning we woke to a wintry mix falling outside, which quickly turned to snow – our first of the year. It’s been going for hours now; we probably have 4-5 inches already with more coming. Fun!  Earlier in the day, we went out to feed the goats and see how they were handling the snow – it was really coming down!

Here’s a shot of the goat pen, you can see our barn just peeking out from between the trees:

At first Hamlet preferred to stay inside their shelter (and I can’t blame him), but he finally came out into the snow with Ivan:

Ivan enjoys licking snow off the fence; you can just see his pink tongue sticking out in this shot:

Hubby petting Ivan (and wearing his hubby hat!):

We pulled some fresh hay out of the bale for them to munch on before we left:

Hopefully they aren’t too cold out there – they’ve got plenty of straw to keep warm inside their shelter, not to mention their furry coats. We’re going to check on them again later today.  Super fun!

    Oh my god – how did I miss this?!? I haven’t spoken to my parents this weekend so I had no idea! Wow – save some for Christmas, please!!

    We were really excited, too! With all the precipitation we’ve been getting this year, I think you’ve got a pretty good chance for some during your trip. Does it snow much in London?

    Hardly ever – one nice thing about London (especially after living in Boston) is that it doesn’t get that cold. So mostly we get wind and rain. Which is not nice. It snowed once last year, and it was a huge deal. It doesn’t snow enough here and it snowed way too much in Boston – VA has the perfect amount, I’d say! And it looks so lovely in your pictures of the farm 🙂
