A Crisp Cold Winter Morning Photographic Farm Tour Of HiBar Ranch

It is cold this morning:  Really cold.  It’s in the low 20 degrees F. so all the water buckets are still frozen.  I’ve had to truck down water to all three barns.  The great news is all the new babies are doing well.  And, we had two new baby goats last night that are big and healthy this morn.  We now have seven new baby goats, with six being girls and one being a boy.  It’s funny how some years we get a lot of girls and some years we get a lot of boys.  Usually my does throw twins or triplets.  This year, there haven’t been any twins until the two this morning that were born late last night.  Here’s a video of the twin girls born to Greta, our Boer.

The other babies are doing well and starting to roam about and explore outside.

Bonnet Outside Exploring This Morning

On the way back up our drive I found the sun to be quite lovely beginning to peak over the foothills onto our farm.  So, I thought I’d share some pictures of the farm this morning at 20 degrees and sunrise climbing over the foothills of the Smokies.  We are starting at the bottom of the drive, going up to all three barns and ending at the house atop the hill.

Here we go…..
