Our First Snow of the Season

After a day of snowfall

After a day of snowfall

Today was our first snow of the season. It is always so much fun to watch the cria get all excited to see their first snow. I unfortunately had to work all day and missed seeing all the big flakes. But when I got home we still had a few inches and a little daylight. I took a few photos of the cria playing the decided I better get busy and get the chores done before it was completely dark. Alan works for a tire company so being the first snowfall they were slammed and super busy which meant that the evening chores were all mine.
All I can say is these alpacas were hungry today! I had to fill every one of the hay feeders this evening and I stocked them up before I left in the morning. Dragging the hay wagon was a bit of a challenge but it was still easier than making several trips back and forth with stacks of hay in my arms! I must say I am getting some muscles in my arms with all of this farm work! Good work out! I am thankful for the heated water buckets as well. No breaking ice for me! Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more winter adventures!
