However, 2019 has been stalled in it's tracks. We have been hit with a rare snow storm that produced 20 inches of snow in less than 24 hours. Plus, we have the joy of two more storms follow it. The first hit Friday/Saturday, the second last night, and the third is to hit tonight into tomorrow. The last time we saw this much snow was in 1996 in which there were building collapses all over the county.
While we have lost the tarp roof over the young boys (no goat was harmed), the barn and shelters are holding up well. We dug trails for the goats to get to and from their shelters to the barn and gates. Well, also so we could carry feed and water to them as well. I was a little concerned Saturday with some shivering going on but everyone seems to have settled to the cold. Towels were added to door openings to block the windchill and everyone has been getting grain in the morning and evenings. Fresh water with probiotics several times a day as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this next storm is a light one and we can finally warm up and have the white stuff go away!!
