Agreed! However, what comes along with snow climates is tempurature swings. It can be below zero at night and warm up in the 50's for a few days with the direct sun feeling warmer than that. That really causes things to sweat and shorten their life unless you have them in a heated area. The best I can do is to have them up stairs in the barn on a wood floor with plenty of hay bales setting around.
