We are all obsessed here in Brittany about this cold snap. Who can stay the warmest, how many duvets can you sleep under. Who has had burst pipes, has your olive oil gone solid, has your Pastis frozen?
My friend has just acquired two young pigs and they were all cuddled up in their new little home and didn't want to venture out into the cold outside of their shelter. They were persuaded out with a jug of warm milk, lap lap lap.
So it makes me wonder how do the animals in the fields especially the big animals keep warm?
Some do not have shelters, and they probably don't have thick coats because mankind has possibly bred out the hairiest for reasons of convenience. They cannot creep down into burrows and get all snuggled up together, like the badgers and foxes, who after all have lovely thick coats.
I hope that you are nice and snuggly in your little nest, and if your heating has gone phut may it soon be repaired.
