Another snowy day in Michigan!

Ho hum! Another snowy day here in Michigan! I think this is our third biggest snow of the winter season, although we only received 5 inches of snow instead of the predicted 10 inches. Our neighbor came by on his tractor and plowed our driveway for us, wasn't that nice? Thanks, Mr. Richardson!

The goats certainly love a nice heavy snowfall. It weighs down the spruce branches so they can climb the fence and grab a tasty snack! Sequoia is 8 years old and he is the "alpha" goat of the herd. He is definitely the boss but also a good protector to the rest of the group. When we got him, he was very small and scraggly. I worried because the bigger goats picked on him all the time. Now he weighs 150 pounds and he rules the herd! Just a lesson for all the "little" people out there..."the greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground."
