Little did I know when I wrote that last post that there actually would be a storm! My parents came to visit this weekend and we woke up to this:
It's almost March! I was definitely not expecting a snowstorm.
None of the animals (except for the dogs) seem happy about this. On the left is the collapsed netting on the chicken coop. The chickens don't care because they don't want to even leave the coop.
Thomas and Zeb aren't stepping out, either.
Abby and Ryan think the farm is even better covered with snow!
So did we...until day 2 of clearing snow off the greenhouse. What a workout...
Zoey is also tired of the snow.
Yup, that's our new puppy. It took us a few days to name her but Zoey suits her perfectly.
Zoey and her sister and two brothers were found in an abandoned car on a reserve at 6 weeks, with no mom to be found. That can make for some pretty timid puppies...but Zoey is great so far! She loves people and is a confident and happy. She is respecting Abby and Ryan's "go away puppy" signals (except for ignoring Abby this morning and jumping into her bed to cuddle with her...the look on Abby's face was sheer disbelief). She's a Border Collie cross mystery...we will see what she grows up to look like!
She's completely different than Ryan was as a puppy (I got Abby when she was already 9 months). She's playful like he was and loves to tug, but she also climbs into your lap to cuddle and fall asleep whereas he would only turn off if I stuck him in his crate. She also races outside through the deep snow on her own to pee and poop and then back in over the steps...Ryan took about 3 weeks to do a step on his own....
