Snowy Saturday

It's still snowing and the wind is starting to blow.  Most of the herd are munching hay outside in the field by their big barn and a few are inside the barn taking a nap.   It's not freezing and its not raining so the cows are very very content.  Maine is getting the brunt of this big storm with large amounts of wind and snow while the seacoast of NH and Massachusetts are getting some flooding.     Here are Doris and Violet enjoying the nicer temperatures and hay.

The weanlings are getting a bit braver about going over or under the electric fence that separates the main herd from the weanlings.  The hay is always greener on the other side, I suppose.  Ms JulieBob is the worse offender.   Some days she travels between both herds sampling all the hay several times per day.  An ambitious heifer she certainly is.

I just hope the big boss doesn't witness her stealth skills at escape or she will be in a world of trouble. Good thing she is cute~!

  1. Brr, makes me cold! We are in for some snow and temperatures in the teens. Oh well, it's winter. My Grandparents lived on a farm and I loved to go with Grandpa when he would feed. He had Herefords. Inevitably they would have a calf on the coldest, snowiest days! Hope you have stocked up for the storm on the necessessities like tp and chocolate!
