I think this piece of the pasture is interesting.
It is all clover... this is where we fed the llamas for
four years... and the grass appeared to disappear under
the feeders... but clover established itself.
It's right inside the big tractor gate, and right outside the goat-llama-pony pen.
I ran back to the car to get my little camera... because
yesterday, there were dandelions blooming!
I drive by this cow frequently. Until two months ago, she had a companion in
her pen. She has a little barn over on the right (by my mirror) and
a nice pond to drink from... but no companion. I don't know if the companion went to freezer
camp or what, but I feel so sorry for lonesome herd animals. She often lays in the corner
on the left out of the picture... there are cattle in the pasture one down from this place, and I know
she can hear them from time to time. Breaks my heart.
In the house next to this, there is now a lone horse, where before, there were two.
Same thing... breaks my heart.
When we lost Lacey, the mini horse, we went to the trouble of borrowing another
mini to keep our pony Beau company.
I am going to think positively that this cow is bred and will be having her calf soon, and have another companion.
You can see the ponds are beginning to freeze... some of these geese were standing on ice.
We are plunging to the lower single digits and possibly zero tonight.
Everyone stay warm!
