The grass is always greener

We all know the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. In our case, however, it is literally true. The cows with calves who have been in the driveway area for the past few months had eaten down everything they could. We were still supplementing with hay. But the pasture hadn't grown enough to let animals graze on it.

Finally, last week we determined that the pasture had enough grass to let the cows into it. Friday was the Big Day. I led Matilda into the pasture and the others eagerly followed. Oh joy! They weren't two steps in before they were tearing off great delicious mouthfuls of fresh grass.


Little Victoria had never seen anything so lush!



Cows can be so pleasant at times. It takes so little to make them happy.


Here they are, way at the bottom of the field. Sure wish the grass stayed this green all summer!

    That last picture is absolutely breath taking! I can't imagine getting to see such beauty on your own property. You are blessed!
