Kids of all ages and types like to play on ice.

Pepperz on ice.
I could not help but share this photo of one of our youngest cats playing with the goldfish in our frozen pond.

Look close in the cats shadow and you can see several goldfish underneath.

Goldfish slow down quite a lot. I have been told by some relatives up North that their ponds appear to freeze solid and the goldfish are still there in the Spring.(alive)

I do not know if that actually happens or if the ice is so thick and they do not move at all so they appear to be frozen in the ice. I don't think I will go to find out, so I will leave it up to biologists or whoever studies those things.

We shut the waterfall off on one of our ponds and it's froze also...little fishes look cooolllddd! But they seem to "thaw" as the pond does and are no worse for wear once the ice goes away.

Thank you MM.

I wish I could just slow down during the winter, float along and be now worse for wear (I think).

Might help us live longer.
