Ewes in Snow

Posted 12/27/2010 8:31pm by Eugene Wyatt.

Last night we got about 18" of snow at the farm.  Sheep can't move when the snow is deeper than their legs are long which is about 12".  But they are quartered on a plain swept by the wind and this prevents snow accumulation. 

The leaders walk in a single file making a path for those who follow.
