Delightful Fall Days and Nights

Posted 10/2/2019 1:18pm by Rebecca Coulter.

     Since our farm practices rotational grazing (which is moving the cows to a new section of  pasture every day or two), the herd ends up in the pasture just off our front porch about once a month.  One of the things I enjoy most about farm life is watching the cows wake up and have their breakfast before milking, at sunrise on a misty morning.


     The little girls enjoy visiting with the cows, through the fence.  Here they are, making friends with Rose.

      Because our bull, Dozer,  is in the pasture with the milking herd, the girls are not allowed to go into the pasture without a big brother or sister.  

     When they can get a protective adult to go with them, they like to collect apples from the orchard to feed the cows.  Here they are, trying to lure Miriam over for a treat.

     We all enjoy taking a break for a few minutes to watch Jacob gather up the cows and take them to the barn for morning milking.

     I usually don't agree with Kinley's assertion that fall is the best time of year, but misty autumn mornings, and a cup of coffee on the porch are ard to beat!
