I’m delighted to see the grass and clover greening up. So are the animals!


On nice days the girls take the horses and cows for a walk to a neighboring pasture, where everybody gets lots of exercise and grass. The cows always give more milk and lots more cream on days that they get their walks, although sometimes the milk takes on some onion-y overtones from all the wild onions! I also like to see the cows stay well-muscled (for a dairy cow), especially after Maude’s incident this winter. I blame her injury partly on the nasty weather that prevented cow walks all winter.

This is from last spring. After such a dark and dreary winter, we’re so ready to refresh our eyes with the color green!
