Sheep Gone Wild!
Feeding Frenzy

© 2009, the foodie farm blog where what were you expecting—52 bowls of steaming hot oatmeal? And just for the record, all of those ice-caked critters could have spent the snowstorm in a nice cozy hut—including that stubborn little donkey.


  1. It's Dan! (I'm not sure how I feel about being able to identify a total stranger's donkeys by name.)

    As for the sheep, they've got built-in sweaters.

  2. I LOVE your blog :) Check it daily, but often forget to comment. This picture just makes me shiver!!

    I appreciated your post about the "reality" of life on the farm a few days ago. We are moving from our million-dollar-golf-course living to a 50 acre farm soon, & this is my biggest fear...walking that fine line of attachment to our animals & the reality of country living.

    Hearing your dose of reality was good...I would love to hear more stories like this in the future if you feel like writing any.

    You have a wonderful blog & always such inspirational stories!!

  3. Oh, I love these winter photos - they are so beautiful. Do these animals just prefer to be outside even if it is cold and snowy? Just given 'em some hay (or oatmeal!) and they're happy??

    They are beautiful!!

  4. Everyone likes a picnic - even sheep like dining alfresco (personally - it was wayyyy too fresco for me!) fun picture

  5. They (and children too) just don't feel the cold like we do.

  6. why is it that these adorable critters look so much MORE adorable when they're covered in snow!

    think dan and the sheep could take a lesson from your cats...whom i've yet to see sporting a snowy overcoat!

  7. Great photo! And I love the title you chose for this post. You are so creative.

  8. At least they have their winter jackets on.


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!
