Savannah Snow Day

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.

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. The Homstead Kings

Duck prints in the snow are about the cutest thing ever. The Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsI 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.The Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThis is our riding arena.

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.The Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead KingsThe Homstead Kings

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. The Homstead Kings

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
