We found that the alpaca/llama created their own paths from the barn to the feeders and their favorite places to congregate.
The dogs loved the snow - they rolled in it, jumped in it, ate it, and had no problem navigating even the deepest snow drifts.
It's clear that the guinea fowl do not like snow. Last night, they veered off the paths we cut for them and decided it was too uncomfortable to come back, so they roosted overnight in a nearby tree on the coldest night of the season thus far (0 degrees F). Luckily they are cold hardy and this morning we convinced them that the warmth and food of their coop was more appealing than an ice covered tree.
Finally, I built two sand stations on each end of the driveway, so we can easily spread sand on the entire approach from the highway to the barn.
So, we successfully completed the cleanup of our first major snowstorm. We learned about each animal's reaction to snow and the steps to take after each storm to keep everything running smoothly. We're ready for whatever nature brings us over the next few months.
