Where Sheep Sleep, Take Three (The Frosted Edition)

here to see Takes One & Two.


  1. Is that snow?! Amazingly, it still hasn't frozen here close to Lake Ontario. But I'm not tempting fate and have brought all the non-hardy plants inside and turned off the outdoor taps.


  2. Fortunately Liselotte and her woolly friends have a good coat !!

    Beautiful photo.

  3. My toes got frost bite looking at that! brrrrr cold!

    Have a great day!

  4. It looks beautiful there. Crisp and cold! I bet the sheep are glad they have a wool coat!

  5. Makes me miss Fall in the South. Being in SoCal now, our season change is when it gets 50 degrees. Love your farm pictures.

  6. Hi Alisha,
    When you asked yesterday morning, it was a balmy 27 degrees F. : ) Actually we've been having fabulous fall weather. Quite a few ups and downs (it was in the 80s last week here, too), but very nice during the day for the most part. Our coldest morning so far was 20 degrees F.

    Hi Kat,
    I'm always surprised by how fast everything defrosts. I hope you get the job! : )

    Hi Elizabeth,
    No, it's not snow, just very heavy frost. The grass crunches when you walk on it. It's pretty neat. And pretty pretty : ).

    Hi Cara,
    The sheep LOVE this kind of weather. It's finally cool enough for them, LOL. They sleep outside under the stars.

    Hi Mijo,
    Thank you. Yep, as the temperature drops the sheep just keep getting woolier. : )

    Hi Heather,
    Little by little I'm digging out my winter gear: heavy gloves, heavier gloves, wool socks, insulated boots, thick jackets, and of course my authentic German military cap with the fold down ear flaps! : )

    Hi Socalfoodie,
    'Crisp' is a perfect word to describe this time of year. And 'cold' of course. : )

    Hi Robwonton,
    Welcome to the farm! Thanks for taking the time to write and say hello. I love your profile photo. : )

    Hi Vjchang,
    Welcome to the farm to you, too! When the barn is full of fresh bedding hay and all those warm woolly bodies, it really does seem like an inviting place to curl up. (And I get opportunities to do just that when a ewe decides to have her lamb in the middle of the night--and takes a long time doing it.) It's very pleasant, and I am never alone. If I am doing anything involving sheep, Lucky Buddy Bear is right there, ready to work. And of course Patchy Cat usually sleeps on a big bag of wool in the barn so he can keep an eye on everyone. : )


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
