As you well know, our cow Amy has been nursing two calves (as well as providing us with an odd quart of milk a couple times a week). Little orphaned Anna is doing fine and everyone's settling into a routine.
As a reward for Amy's patience as well as to supplement her nutrition, we purchased a couple bags of COB (corn-oats-barley) with molasses.
Needless to say, Amy thinks this is a spiffy idea.
But she's not the only one who likes COB. This morning I noticed a little opportunist enjoying the bounty.
Granted, at the moment the bags of COB are just leaning against the porch, so I can't blame the chipmunk for taking advantage of the opportunity.
But yeah, time to put the COB out of reach.
