Clear, cold, and cozy

The creek looks even more beautiful in the winter.  I love seeing it in the summer, too, but often there's an irrigation pump in it, and it's not as calendar-picture pretty.  Much more useful, but it doesn't make me run for my camera!

The scene of the new barn is different too.  The curtains are all the way up, and they're all the way down.  The garage doors are shut. 

You can see the silhouette of a warm calf through the curtains:

Since today started at 15 degrees and warmed all the way up to 22 degrees, it's nice to have a modifiable barn.

But more changes are afoot. Tomorrow we're moving some of the older calves to the barn closer to our house. It's still protected and warm, but they also get a taste of what it's like to be outside.

And tomorrow it's supposed to be 40 degrees! After today, that'll seem almost like spring.
