Rarely do I ever see barns painted other than red or natural brown.
The snow made the barn glow in its goldness

A tractor peeks around the far right end of the lower level
A small silver grain silo is in front while the larger vintage silo peers over the top of the barn.
The gold color is so distinct I wondered why. I thought about the possible breeds of cattle that would require a gold barn. ( take a guess, now)
I could only think of one possibility and promised myself that I would come back in May and glimpse the cows as they were turned out to first spring grass, to see if my guess was the right one.
As I drove on down the road past their driveway I spotted their sign.
My guess was correct.
Golden Guernseys ! AND this farm is a Dairy of Distinction. The highest honor.
I will be back!
