You know what you've been missing? Lacey+the G's in the snow!

This was also Atticus's first snow EVER so he was pretty thrilled (once he got over the initial shock).

Lacey and Hazel were not very impressed (Hazel thought it was too cold, Lacey thought it was too slippery) but they did eventually come out of the shed.
I was a little worried about how Lacey's eyes would handle it but put a flymask on her and I gave her a good dose of yucca+devils claw in the morning, along with her usual anti-inflammatories, and she seems to have done fine. So yay that!

So prepare to laugh, those of you from more snowy climes. For me, this was so much snow! Hahaha
The singular bummer is that it never really got very cold so it's all pretty much melted already.
Hopefully though this is a sign that we might get more snow this season (I love snow) because usually we don't see sticking snow until late January. This time, we didn't see freezing temperatures until last Saturday (usually happens in October/November) and then BAM, we got snow!
Fingers crossed! Haha
At least now all the no-see-ums and mosquitoes should be dead! They were getting troublesome.

"Um, snow? I refuse to acknowledge it. NASTY stuff."

"What isssss this stuff??????!"

"OHMIGOSH PANIC. It's cold AND wet AND it TOUCHED me!!!"

"Errrr, yeah. Just give us more hay and we'll hang out here, with our buddy Muck Bucket, until the snow melts. You don't mind cleaning this stall around us, right?"

[Hazel and Lacey have really been developing a friendship over the last few weeks - it's adorable, they're both such sassy ladies]

"Well, I'm standing in it but I'm still not too sure how I feel...."

"Saaaaave me."

And then he decided that it was his brand new playmate. Silly kid!

Snow Explorer Atticus!

"HAZEL! Let's PLAY!!!"

His instigation was met with a headbutt that planted him squarely in the snow. Soooo he came back to me because apparently I'm his adventure buddy? Hahahaha

Lacey still wasn't too sure about how she felt. It was covering HER GRASS!

Hazel, still wanting no part in this snow thing.

"I'm only here because I'm being forced."

Snow buddies.

Thanks for looking! :)
I hope you all are having a lovely day!

Why is Hazel wearing a blanket? I've always heard angoras do well in the cold!

My goats absolutely hate the snow and rain and everything wet.

Thanks, ilikehorses! :) Snow on the ground is some motivation to get up in the morning! Haha

Awww Caroline. Thanks!

Almond, meee too! I'm not sure why but she shivers something awful if I leave her unblanketed.
I think it's possibly because we have a lot of "damp" here and there's generally a cool breeze. On days when it isn't raining and there's no breeze, she does do really well without her blanket.
My other concern is that Angoras can be prone to skin conditions and really shouldn't get wet but since Lacey and Atti go out in the rain, Hazel ends up being "dragged" along too so the blanket also keeps her dry. But yeah, I hadn't intended to get her a blanket(s) originally but then I saw her shivering all the time and my heart kinda broke. Haha

I've heard that about goats! I don't know why but mine don't seem to mind it too much! Hazel's not a huge fan of rain/snow and will attempt to avoid going out of the shed if at all possible but Atticus is always out there, no matter the weather. He's a dork.

Haha babies are too funny! When they're really little sometimes they will just run and jump then lose their balance and fall over!!! Its so cute! My show goat used to be a total dork and when I tried to lead her with show contact, she would lay down!

Very good Wallaby -- another great installation to the Lacey, Hazel and Atticus saga.

Thanks Casey02!

That's hilarious, Almond! I have stall mats out in front of my stalls to keep things safe for Lacey and Atticus is all the time galloping through there, then biffing it when he tries to stop or turn too fast. Soo funny!

Thanks, Chevaux! It really is a saga, isn't it?

LOL, love the pics!
(I tried to get my husband to buy me a goat(or two) today...dang him, wasn't going for it)
