Well, they did predict we would be getting snow… And they were correct! January 2018 goes out like a lion dumping a good 18-24″ of fluffy white stuff! (Personally, I had told hubby we would need to pull out the hose to “winter water” our trees this weekend because we’ve had such a dry winter so far. Well, he must have been in cahoots with Mother Nature (because winter watering trees is NEVER a fun thing to do!) so now he doesn’t need to worry about doing it this weekend!
The dogs absolutely LOVE the snow! Blitzing here and there hoping to chase up a bunny or two, they plow through the drifts enjoying every minute of Mother Nature. Even Beanie, our “honorary” Golden Retriever keeps up with the big dogs; she is not about to let those dogs do anything without her!
Out to do “barn chores”, the donkeys are less than thrilled with the snow. They carefully keep their distance to stay OUT of the snow much preferring the overhead roof that allows shelter from the elements.
Now tired, the dogs individually lick off the “snowballs” built up on their feet. And then, a good nap was had by all! You just can’t beat “playing in the snow” to exercise/tire out the dogs!

Charleston always loved the snow too. Zachary has never experienced more than a few flakes. Love your photos, Jennifer, and Rooster has stolen my heart.
Aww… THANKS, Susan! I LOVE the snow for shooting high key shots; always bright and happy 🙂 And THANK YOU re: Rooster… He reminds me so much of his father, Tazo. I just love how perfect he naturally stands (I couldn’t stack him to make him look better then what he does naturally!) I can’t wait to see what Zachary thinks of real snow! I am sure he will love it!! Love following his training and adventures… You’ve done so much with him already! You motivate me to get out there and train my dogs! 🙂
