Merry Christmas!

After moving a few bales of hay down from the barn, I decided to make the day a special one for the cows. I put a new bale of straw out on the dry lot for them. After a few minutes of intense head rubbing, jumping, bucking, kicking and all-around joyful behavior, they all settled in for some serious munching.



And soon after, the time was right for a nap.

A few days ago, I decided it was time to move Eve from the nursery pasture to the big girl area. I move the cows up with the two heifers for a few hours each afternoon. Eve is always so happy to see the cows come up that she has to run and greet them. Then she usually gets a lesson in where her place in the herd is going to be. Now she and Gabby keep each other company.—PS


That’s Eve’s mom, Elsie, with Gabby and her.
