Corgi in the SNOW!!!

Well, it's not a TON of snow, but it'll do!! SNOW!
Videos are here:

Checking out snow for the first time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RFxCemoZmQ

Running fast fast fast and herding the garden boxes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biEYHcAJMUQ

Jumping from one box to another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyS4gQoLctA

The chicken coop's tarp was covered, but inside: Dry. Success!
More garden boxes full of snow.
Pup, surveying it all, not sure what to make of it upon her first look.
So what to do? RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.
This snow stuff is actually pretty cool, mom.

And, she was given permission to go IN the garden boxes. This of course also meant hilariously jumping from one box to another.
Still moment, chest fur covered in snow.
Behind shot-- check out the snow on those feet!!!
Exhausted, but totally happy.
She loved it, and I cannot wait for her to see deeper snow.


  1. how do chickens stay warm? Is it okay for them to be out in snow-cold weather, or does their coop have a little fireplace?

  2. I really don't need to start worrying about the chickens unless it starts getting close to 0*. They're pretty well-insulated. But at that low temperature, their feet or exposed skin on their heads could get frostbitten. Their coop is pretty well-insulated, and they all huddle together at night. I do need to cover up one window though. It is screened for ventilation and has two shutter doors on it. So, it doesn't let much cold air in, but it does let some. There is a vent on top the coop to allow air to circulate, so they'll be ok with the one window boarded up. No rush though until another cold front moves in. AND, their pen is 100% covered right now. No rain or snow get it. I mean, a LITTLE blows in, but not enough for them to do any damage to themselves.
