It was time to get the cows out of the pasture and put them back in the wooded side of our property for awhile. The pasture was getting eaten down and the woods had grown up, so it was the perfect time to switch. But first we wanted them to stay in the driveway area for a couple of days and eat down the grasses there.
A few animals found their way into the driveway right away...
Others needed a little convincing. I'm leading Matilda; and Thor, Polly, and Victoria are following.
Soon everyone had their heads buried in the lush grass, eating.
Later, Thor sacked out in the sun.
Nebuchadnezzar couldn't figure out where the water went...
...but Matilda and Victoria found it quick enough.
Raven scratches her chin.
In the midst of our busy season as well as in the midst of promoting the Simplicity Primer, I'm working on my next book. Don insists I do some writing every day. It's been so nice outside that this spot under the trees has become my writing studio. Surrounded by cows. And a horse, of course.
Brit (our horse) was a great (cough) help while I was writing.
Snatching my visor was apparently too much for Brit. She stretched out in the sun and took a nap.
This looks like a horrible case of Nebuchadnezzar stabbing Raven in the throat, with Raven yelling bloody murder.
Actually Nebuchadnezzar is sound asleep and Raven is cozied up to him, chewing her cud. I just happened to catch some unflattering shots of her with her mouth open.
Naptime for everyone!
