Snow Day at Apothecary Inn!
I have to say that I was more than a little shocked by the amount of snowfall we received yesterday. There was about a foot of snow at our house (I know because I measured the level of the snow with my muck boots during morning chores! *grin*), and the road conditions were less than ideal. It took us an extra two hours to get to work this morning. The animals' reactions to the snow ranged from sheer terror (Frieda, Zilla, Cheerio, Breeze, and the chickens) to open excitement (Gruff and Bartholomew). The snow was so high that the goats had to practically burrow out of their shelters in order to reach their outdoor hay feeders. Ryan and I had a blast playing in the freshly fallen snow! We are used to such snow in Utah, but I NEVER expected this from Oregon!!!

The snow is coming up about mid-calf in this picture. Gruff and Bartholomew (our two pet wethers behind me) are practically being buried by the deep snow!

Sprout and Quanta's Introduction Into the World!

Meet the two newest (and cutest) members of the Apothecary herd!

Ryan says hello to the newborns.
Sprout is the spitting image of his mom, Sweet Pea. Quanta, a darling black-with-red-highlights girl, is our miracle baby! We almost lost her, but thankfully, all things worked out, and Quanta is healthy and growing more vigorous with each passing day!

Here's our sweet, ADD goat baby! Sprout has more energy than a million hummingbirds!!!

Quanta on Day #2, looking happier and healthier

I love this picture!: "Yin and Yang"
