These pictures are from yesterday around midday when the snow properly got going.
Deep and crisp and even.
We broke into a hay bale (the first of the year) and distributed it into old fish boxes tied to the fence so everyone could have a good eat.
There was even sharing, which is always heartwarming. This herd is a happy bunch and there is little arguing or stress. All good friends with no rattiness.
Rugs were on those that needed them.
For a short while the snow lay. Everywhere was white and looking clean.
As I left the field to return to the house for lunch, I found this little urchin helping herself to the muck heap. We had words while she was cross I had spotted her. I chivvied Her Maj back into the house with a flea in her ear. And then there was the sulking and I had to apologise to her for her bad behaviour.
The snow didn’t stay long. It had all but gone by the late afternoon.
Apparently bad weather is forecast to return and now everyone is, after one day, in a routine of being fed hay. Amazing!
