We rode out early yesterday afternoon — to check on the cows and to count calves.
The light and the air was just perfect!
It was just beautiful for a late winter day, the air was like sparkling water and the farm dappled with light from passing clouds.
The air was very still (no wind), so there wasn’t a chill anywhere. The cows had their babies ‘stashed’ on the alfalfa fields, instead of hidden under a bush or next to a swell of land. Allowing the weak late winter, almost spring sun warm their babies.
I find it a great comfort to see and feel the cold starting to leave.
And to experience the excitement of Mr. Davis’ herd growing larger every day. There are forty calves out there now! Forty more to go!
