Staying warm and furry



2021-11-18 - Adair Co., KY - Photo by Veronica Arnold.
Veronica writes, "Taken yesterday after the rain and before it dropped down below freezing. Make sure to give your animals the extra bit they need to stay warm, dry and extra calories they use to keep their bodies warm this winter... It's not technically winter yet but with below freezing temps, keep an eye on that livestock.

My buddy and his little friend pictured here. While it's cold they stay close and share extra food to stay warm."
