First Snow on the farm

It was a chillY morning today here on the farm(December 14th.) We had snow flurries most of the night. I guess it was just enough to have some school delays. Its always a pretty sight when we have the first snow. The animals are all spunky from the chill in the air in the morning and usually run to greet me with a cheery "Hi Mom whats for breakfast?" They gather around and wait for the hay racks and grain bins to be filled with carrot and grain, then they go about their day happily. Mostly they lay out in the snow lazily chewing their cud. Rarely will you find them in unless its blizzard conditions. I allow mine to come and go, to and from the barn as they like.Some of the old guys like Al would prefer to spend sometime inside the barn, wandering in and out to check the flock of sheep and his herd of alpaca.
I must say now that this very first bit of snow has arrived I can really feel the thrill of Christmas. Can't you?

Last night all the animals were snuggled in their beds while visions of apple and carrot danced in their head!
