Cold Vermont Weekend

One of our Randall Linebacks that we hope to breed.

Last weekend was bitter cold, with temperatures well below zero at night. We kept the wood cookstove going all day as well as the fireplaces. It was too icy to ride horses in the woods and too cold for hunting — the rabbits were probably holed up anyway. But Adrienne did cook an excellent New England Boiled Dinner using our own brisket for homemade corned beef and Caroline made a delicious chocolate cake. Who doesn’t like winter?

A young Black Angus -- just arrived last week.

Dakota, the Appaloosa, is the leader of the pack. (Left)

It was about 10 degrees all day; the thick coats and a barn overhang keeps them warm.

A large moon was still hanging over the valley early Sunday.

The Green River really is green in winter.

The frozen pond is now perfect for skating.

It was zero degrees when I snapped this shot; colder earlier.
