Glover's Snow Update

Hi, my name is Glover!
I don't think we have been formally introduced and since my "Mom" is having stress and anxiety issues this week with the weather, I thought I would help her out with her blog.

First I would like you to notice this fine red fleece coat I am sporting! Well, its really not mine but Dixie, that annoying Cardigan that chases us lambs all over the place, let me borrow it because I started rooing all my fleece. Mom had a freak fit and worried about me getting a chill cuz the temps are "below" normal according to her. I am not quite sure what below normal is for winter but I have heard talk in the barn that this is sheep weather but those goats are saying that it is B.S. weather. Not sure what that means as I am a youngin' still but Mom told me to cover my ears when the goats start talking like that.

These are my buddies.....the Lamb Gang! Mom lets us out cuz she really likes us but she said come spring when things start growing really green and pretty this freedom is going to have to stop. I think I can win her over on this issue cuz she says I am one of her favorites:)

Some of the farm animals don't need coats like Speedy the miniature horse. She is a grain hog Mom says.......sometimes she even calls her a real fat A*#..........opps, I was suppose to cover my ears!

These guys are really pathetic! Mom even shoveled a nice path in front of their house but they won't even come out for a little bit. Mom is really mad at them cuz they shut down egg production and she had to buy free-range eggs at the grocery store. Talk on the farm is that they might become meat birds if they don't kick the egg production into gear. Us animals know that is probably just stress talk from Mom cuz we all know she is really a softy.
So life on the farm has been crazy this week but all animals are doing well in the weather!

Don't you think the red coat looks much better with the snow lips?
Opps, I think I hear Mom calling me to help her fill grain buckets for dinner..........

so that will have to be all for now! Hope everyone is keeping safe and warm!
Love, Glover
