All The Stars In The Sky

Feb 26, 2016

By the time I finish my milking and feeding chores, the stars are out and I get a chance to look at them and daydream. At the winter solstice, OrionĀ  was laying on his side above the barn. Now he's standing upright above the pasture, and will soon disappear until next winter. Where does Orion go?

Once I got started thinking about the stars, I saw them everywhere, even on the goats.

Snow on the goat's coat looks like stars in the sky.

Tune in to Children's corner Saturday February 27, to learn more talk about Orion, the big dipper, the north star, and to find out why the goats enjoy the cold weather and snow.
