Seriously?

These geese go into shelter out of the wind during the night but move outside during the day. They are right in the direct northwest wind which is measuring minus 38 as I write this. What is wrong with them? The other goose that wasn’t walking well last week who is now in the barn actually moved in with Susannah under the heat bulbs. She must be smarter.
Before I went to the barn this morning I called Connie and said if she didn’t hear from me in 30 minutes, call 911. I checked the barn furnace, Rick’s shop furnace and all 3 quilt shop furnaces and they were all working—yeah!
Now I can go to my sewing machine and Season 2 of Downton Abby. Tonight is the national championship college football game that I can’t miss! Hope you’re all warm and safe!

    Some animals are like that. Our dairy cattle hve free access to the free stall barn to get out of the wind. We have several cows that like to go outside! They just stand there and let the snow pile up on them. They act like it is no big deal!

    My husband has now put all the cattle in the shed & locked them in. It is too cold for them to be outside no matter what they think!

    What about Emma; is she still hanging out with Susannah? I am glad your disabled goose is smart enough to stay indoors. We are snuggled in waiting for higher temps here in south-western IL. I really love your posts. I am looking forward to stopping by the shop next June, as we are attending a family reunion in Spencer IA.

    My husband grew up on a chicken farm; he says birds don’t have very big brains!!! It does seem pretty dumb to hang out outside today. Zero here in central Ohio.

    Susanna doesn’t look exactly happy with her guest….but I’m sure she’s glad to share the warmth….Love your stories
