Corgi Snowplow Tunnels

I witnessed two little corgi dogs playing snowplow this afternoon.  (Jake must have rubbed off on them.)   Here I am shoveling trails for them to run on since the snow is so deep, even deeper after the snow and wind yesterday, and I see Lady just head full speed into a huge drift.    Her drift is on the right.    Beaver, not to be left out, followed by plowing the path to the left.    I have no idea what they thought was over on that side of the house, but they sure were determined to have a look-see.
 The second picture is just a close up of the first one.    Believe me the walls of their tunnels were taller than they were.    They both just busted through that drift like it wasn't even there.   
                                                              Snow Dogs Rule!!!

We are back in our routine of one clipper system after another.    Tomorrow more snow and wind.   I just hope that it doesn't switch back to that real cold stuff we had last week.    Snow is easier on all of us than extreme cold.

Winter Animals

These are all pictures of my animals outside in the weather which is totally different today than it was a week ago.  It is probably nearly 40 degrees warmer this Monday than it was last Monday.    They are probably even happier about this than I am.

 You have no idea how long it took me to get all these animals arranged at the fence line.   I will never bother to do that again.
 There are 6 ewes in this pasture, but they were not feeling too photogenic.
 The other three ewes are in this picture with the ram.   He is the small one.
 These are my four furry house friends.   They love the snow.  Their yard had paths for them to run in, but the wind messed that up.    Tomorrow I will have to start again because we are supposed to get more snow.
Here they are again.    As you can see, only one of them is laying fluff from El Paso.   What is wrong with that?
