OK, enough with the snow!

Some light fluffy snow, even a foot or so, would have been fine. Instead we got heavy, wet snow and then a crust of ice and sleet. This has made for treacherous walking for humans and dogs. Flash the Corgi tries to simply follow the rest of us, but we have steps, not a path which makes it hard for her at 13. I just carry her to the snow blown areas.

The ducks simply stay in - no complaints from them!
The sheep, goat, mini horse and donkeys use the paths broken by the horses. And Tom and I shove our way through drifts to the manure pile.

I do love snow and hope to cross country ski tomorrow but I think I could manage with quite a bit less :).
