First Snowfall of the Year !

 
 
This morning we woke up to the first snowfall of the year here in Scotland.  With the colder weather
brings extra jobs.  This is Haggis enjoying his new bale of haylage, this means he can enjoy his food without having to hunt for the grass.... well he is special and deserves the treat, after all he is 16yrs old.

 
The girls going out this morning, they had hardly left the barn and they were rolling in the nice fresh snowfall.

 
This is the very first snow that the babies have seen.  Zambo had a great time jumping up and down.  The babies were fascinated with the arrival of the first snow.

 
Dougal is making his way down to the new bale of haylage.  I have my stash of haylage in the field for the cows, this means that I don't have to always take the tractor up to feed the cows if the weather gets too bad.

 
The babies enjoying the snow, Zambo spent ages rolling around.

 
Then it was time for Zymerah to have a go ... the girls are too busy around the hay-ring.  Looks like the haylage has the seal of approval.

Zambo wants to be white like the others!

The beasties all look like they are enjoying the white stuff Jayne - unlike the humans! We had our first lot of snow too yesterday. Stay warm. Shirley & Robbie

A nice reminder that winter is here!
Just wind and rain down here so far. It looks lovely in the sunshine and you certainly look well organised, hope it doesn't get too cold up there!

Snow here last night but it's back to rain and mud today!

Look like you are all having fun! How long does it take Haggis to munch a whole bale ?

As everyone else...mostly wet at the moment...at least a roll in the snow leaves clean fleeces! Great idea to leave the haylage where it's needed!
