Chickens and Sheep in the Snow

These chickens were huddled in their house at first, then one by one they ventured out into the snow-covered yard and started pecking at the ground, stretching, fluffing out their feathers.  I was drawing with gloves on, shivering, going as fast as I could.

Near the chickens were a few enormous wooly sheep in their luxurious winter coats, browsing around in a small pasture with the milk cow and a visiting black cow.  Drawing fast, but the sheep were hardly moving.  Snow still coming down.  M and I walked nearly four miles on the now frozen mud trails and through the garden and farm fields.
