Winter Arrives

December ushered in the first real cold blast of Winter to Grace Valley Farms. The coldest temperature we've seen, so far, is minus 18 degF ! Brrrr! Right now, we have 3-4 inches of snow on the ground and the nearby Beartooth Mountains are sporting their snowy crests.

The sheep are all decked out in their God-given wool coats, so the cold doesn't seem to bother them, too much. Give them a supply of the good quality Grace Valley Farms hay and a little shelter from the wind, and they are content. As you can see from the photos, the Romney and Romney-cross sheep are looking rather fluffy. Some of them look like cotton balls with legs!
