Cold Hardiness A Must
What a winter we are having! Since moving here 12 years ago, this winter tops the record of snow on the ground. We haven't had too many thaws so the snow keeps piling up. We will take any moisture we get due to dry conditions the last couple of years. We keep thinking all this white will turn to lush green in the spring and summer! With temperatures plummeting to -25 degrees we expected the does to be huddled up but there they were finishing up their hay. The kids are growing well and the heat lamps turned back on for the bitter temperatures, maybe we are babying them a bit but why not! Temperature swings in our part of Montana, recently a 60 degree difference, can take a toll on livestock but the does and kids all came through healthy.
