Keeping warm!

Keeping warm for these guys is no problem! Their fiber is so thick that they really don't even notice. However, in these subzero temps they bed down for the night in our lower barn with a few bales of straw and get locked in for the night. They are all getting on in age so it's important that they are warm and able to cuddle up and keep warm.
People often ask me how our animals get through the sub zero temperatures. Connecticut is experiencing, as well as many other states, sub zero temperatures falling in the negative numbers. These animals are adapted and acclimated for the winter but when they dip down like this we give them some help. Our chicken coop has a heating lamp that Tim has caged in wire so no chance of fire! They are locked in at night and huddle under it to keep warm. This picture is of them going in for the evening without any issues because they know its warm in there!
