Wowser! It is a cold one out today! I have been outside much of the day picking up branches and pine cones that covered the grounds after last night's wind storm. My cheeks can't seem to warm up but it feels pretty good to be active in such chilly weather.

The goats don't seem to mind though - the sun is out and they invite the rays to take the iciness out of the air. I oftentimes see them laying out, like hairy sunbathers, napping with their eyes closed, chewing cud. As their caretaker, I have to keep in mind that when the temperature is under 37 degrees, livestock need more food and more water just to maintain their normal body temperatures.
