Well had my first baby this year. Minus 4 in a snow storm. Saw him up and running with his mother in their pen. Gosh go from 102 warm womb to minus 4 that's 106 degrees difference and live. Had some sheep I bought and no way to know their expected birth date. Anyway baby is doing fine but expected temp tonight is minus 20. Moved baby and mom into the heated barn area. Also moved the other female sheep in there also.

Hey guys thanks. Baby is doing fine and weather will be up to 35 Wednesday. Glad to see the minus 20 gone. Gotta love those chinooks that come in here to keep us warm. A week ago it was 57 degrees and had been that way for about a week.

Im glad to hear for you Jack. What is the cause for your weather being like that? Is it El Ninio? Or is this regular for you this time of year?
