Walking in a winter wonderland
When walking through the woods, I found a few interesting things. Although the creek is frozen over in most places, water is still running beneath the ice. It's interesting that the ice is broken at most of the crossings. That makes it very inconvenient and difficult for us to try to get across, since the creek banks are six to ten feet deep in the places that have not been forded.
Joy and I also founds the remains of a deer. It wasn't that far from the sheep, so I'm glad to know that the llamas have been doing their job keeping the coyotes out of the sheep pasture.
And speaking of the llamas, they were very interested in meeting Joy. This was the first time I've ever taken her out there. She usually doesn't want to walk in that direction for some reason known only to her, but once I got her out there, she loved all the strange new smells and unusual animals she met. The sheep and llamas seemed very intrigued by her too.
