Winter Cows

It snowed some more today. Just looking at the cows standing out in it makes me cold. The pigs stick indoors, only coming out to eat, but the cows prefer to eat their way to warmth. That crabby cow looking at the camera is Missus Hamilton.

The hay that’s spilled on the ground around the bale feeder won’t go to waste. Over the winter the cows will drop their “pies” on it, trample it, and mix everything together. Next summer Matt will haul it out of there and pile it up to compost. Come fall it will be spread on the garden.
