Down on the Farm: wooly sheep

A wooly sheep contemplates the weather outside.

A meme was circulating earlier this winter with an image of a frozen stock tank and a sledge hammer with the caption, “If winter is your favorite season, there’s a 99% chance you don’t have livestock.”

I wouldn’t quite agree with this statement — there are lots of reasons to love the milder parts of winter in animal husbandry, including a reprieve from mud, biting flies and heat stress. But things can grow pretty rough when we reach the bitter cold part of winter.
