It is snowing, and has snowed every night for the past five days. Today the snow is staying because the temperature has dropped below zero and is going down to minus 10 tonight. That means the hose and the water bowls for the animals will all be frozen. Petey Rabbit is not feeling well and has to be given antibiotics. He was not eating much for a while and got quite thin, don't know why, but sure do not want to lose that boy. He was imported from Holland is a rather spectacular rabbit. The ducks and geese are not great about using nest boxes and the cold means more frozen eggs. The dogs slept in their houses last night, not so much because of the cold, but to stay out of the snow. They didn't sleep in the houses much in winter and are a little confused, as the rest of the critters are too, as to why it is snowing now. The sheep were to be sheared on Saturday, but the shearer has escalated the event to Thursday, so tomorrow I will be scurrying around getting power and other necessities to the barn in case it is snowing. Gosh, snow in mid April just seems wrong. Even Robbie was not his usual self today, though he looked cute with the snow flakes on his pretty black fur, doesn't he?
