Buckets of snow were dumped on the farm and I spent time with friends I haven’t seen in a while.

There was a huge snow storm here in Mass a couple of weekends back. I arrived at the farm early to talk to Deb and found it filled with volunteers shoveling paths through the thick white blanket that enshrouded the property. By that time, the snow had stopped falling but multiple feet had gathered and they’d just gotten power back. Since the shovels were all taken, I explored for a while. With it being the middle of winter, I kind of have tunnel vision when I’m there these days. I haven’t been to the main barn in over a month! It was nice to catch up with Liam, Jackson and the rest of the goats.

Here’s shy Liam smiling for the camera.

Gully was still in the barn and had taken up residence in a feeding trough! (Seriously, who could not be in love with this guy??)

Levi was still in the barn too and decided that he’d had enough of this “on the ground” sort of stuff so he ventured into the rafters. (Look at his cute little coat!)

These guys were busy chowing down on the snow.

Rude!

And Cloud decided that it was high time he rolled around in the snow! I was the only surprised one, apparently. Everyone else was business as usual.

And then it was time to head to my barn.

Not to be outdone, Athena wanted to show off her pretty eyes (and to be the final image of the post!).

  1. wow love the goats, cloud looks just like shorty pourty I used to have. and that buckskins face is pretty. I like how you put coats on the goats, made me laught. they actually look good on them.

    • Hi Roberta! Thanks for commenting. Welcome! The animals live at Winslow Farm in Norton MA, I’m just lucky enough to visit them every week. So, the fashion choices are made by the woman who runs the farm. I agree that they look good in them. I thought it was hilarious the first time I saw a goat in a coat!

  2. I love those horses…great pictures! :)
