Y’all, it snowed in Savannah today. You read that right- Snow. It’s so rare down here that I thought I’d share some winter wonderland pictures with y’all from around the homestead. No how-to’s in this post. You just don’t see snow in Savannah everyday.
Next on our project to-do list is building little houses for the ducks and chickens. Literally we are planning on doing these this weekend. It’ll be a little late, but they are thankfully well-equipped for this weather. The ducks have even been swimming.
Duck prints in the snow are about the cutest thing ever. I didn’t think the chickens would appreciate the freezing rain that preceded the snow so we threw the tarp over for a little protection. They will definitely appreciate their new coop coming soon.This is our riding arena. Aren’t we adorable…😜We tried that gallon jug of salt water in the water trough myth. I guess it kind of worked because it didn’t freeze completely, but it’s still slushy so we’ve been running 3-5 gallons of warm water from the house every few hours and scooping the ice out of the trough.
We have only been able to build one run-in shed so far. The horses rotate themselves under it to eat out of the slow-feeder hay box in there.
D’Artagnan’s first time seeing snow.
Chatta (aka beasty) felt right at home in this winter wonderland. Now please excuse me as I go make myself a warm hot-toddy. How To Make a Delicious Hot-Toddy
