Oh the weather outside is frightful,
And the fire is so delightful,
But the sheep have to be fed so–
Skip the snow, skip the snow, skip the snow!
The sheep seem to like the cold, but that’s because they don’t know that the ice nearly kept them from getting their breakfast! All the gate latches were frozen solid this morning. I had to chip the ice off with my pocketknife before I could get in.
I’m sure they’d not be in favor of anything that delayed the arrival of their yummy hay! They’re always very enthusiastic about being fed.
