A couple of days ago we were all noticing that Spring had sprung. The trees had begun blooming and the grasses were bright green again. Just when Mother Nature had tempted us with beautiful 70 degree weather, an angry Mr. Winter came back to throw his white blanket on all of our fun!
This is how it went....
The angry Mr. Winter came in the night running through the land sprinkling his frosty white flakes all about. When we woke up after the long night of howling wind and whistling trees, we thought he had done his deed for good, but he came back over and over again giving us more than we could stand!
The little ol' rock house has seen many a storm and stood strong through the fury.
The creek didn't seem to mind the snow as it kept up with its steady flow.
Sheba and Suzi, welcomed Mr. Winter's fierce whipping wind as they watched the gate latch slowly shake back and forth until it finally released, freeing the iron door from it's restraint. Sensing the freedom outside, they left the safety and warmth of their corral and endured the fury of the storm to see what was waiting for them outside. Oh what freedom they surely enjoyed, frolicking and playing in the snow until their noses caught the scent of something wonderful. The sweet scent wafted through the air, drawing them from their fun as their noses took control and began searching until they found the treasure hiding from them. Coming through the back of the barn and into a small room in the corner, they found the hidden treasure, a sweet of a bale of hay where they happily stood and ate until their heart's content.
What was once a nice rectangular shape of hay, somehow turned into a mess, Sheba and Suzi didn't care to hide their secret night of eating!
Early in the morning, when the snow stopped falling, we went to check on the animals, and to our surprise, Sheba and Suzi were out of their corral! Vic and Craig began to coax them with the sweet taste of hay but they seemed to be uninterested after a quick sniff from Suzi.
They just weren't hungry, hummm, we all wondered why!
Only Sheba and Suzi knew what Mr. Winter had done to bring excitement and delight to their night!
Goodbye for now girls, until we check on you a little later!
