We had the calves loaded and ready to head to market just at the sun got up.
Good thing the ground is frozen, as there is nothing worse than a fresh cow pie to step in. Then add that gooey thing into thawed slush of manure and …well…you get the picture.
Our little herd of three calves is all we had to worry about so the old homemade trailer worked fine for us. Nothing like my blog friends who move large heads of cattle, but still something that needs to happen in a timely manner.
The leaves from the apricot tree and the lilac bush crashed as soon as the air warmed up. The willow tree is still fully leaved but I’m sure it won’t be long now until it is de-leafed.
On the way back from Paonia I ran into a country style traffic jam. Cows heading down the moutains to winter pastures.
