Winter 2017, more of a "normal" Montana winter than the last few years. We still have milder winters than, say, Chicago, or Minnesota, or even the New England states. At least Western Montana does. The goats are full of cashmere and some are starting to let loose of it. I will wait till it warms up a bit before starting the combing. Below zero temps are too cold to loose one's winter coat just yet!
Rocky the Turkish Akbash looking out over the snow. Him and his sister Cloud are very good livestock guardians. Rocky takes his job too seriously sometimes. He gets a bit nasty with his sister whenever anything is going on with the goats.
One of the buck pens. You can tell he doesn't like to go out much when the snow is deep. His private parts could get froze off! The indents you see are from the dogs going out there before the last storm we had. Jimmy hasn't gone past his water bucket all winter. Below is the sunset tonight. It wasn't spectacular, but it was pretty.
