Kids Day Out

NEO CHECKING OUT SNICKERS IN THE BARN
Actually, Layla and the kids got some fresh air for about an hour till the clouds came back, and the wind and snow started again. The warmer barrel in the barn has been off most of the time now, since the kids stopped using it after the first week. They only went in when we closed them into their "jug". We haven't done that for three nights now. Left to their own choice, they sleep behind the creep feeder barrier in the corner. I think they must like the tight space. Its the only place they ever sleep. When you go to pick one up, they are all sweaty. I don't think its been much above freezing since they were born, but they have nice warm coats, and they keep each other cozy.
Layla was very happy to be outside and eating some fresh growth, even if it might not be too green. By the wall there was enough to keep her busy for a while. Goats are less choosy this time of year. The kids gave it a try also.
