Cold February Night

It's only 8F here right now.  The sheep are in the fold and not wanting to do much more than munch hay.  This cold is a nightmare when you are lambing.  Thank goodness none of my ewes have bags yet but I expect I will have to keep a close eye on them for a couple days as the weatherman says we should expect an Alberta Clipper in here on Thursday with more snow and bitter cold.  I hate all the ice chipping and fuss with water buckets when its this cold.  If the ewes don't drink right away the water quickly turns to a block of ice in the bucket.
