Snow Good At All

Heavy snow fell late this afternoon turning the upper dale white.
Not what we expect during lambing however our sheep are hardy and wonderful mothers.  
You can see by the snow clinging to this ewe's fleece how she has protected her lamb from the worst of the storm.
This unseasonal weather is hard on both the ewe and the lambs.  Although there are racks of hay in the pastures as supplement feed the sheep still prefer to seek out any grass they can find.
Roll on spring everyone's sake.
