Cowmergency

I have been listening to that cow in distress now since yesterday afternoon, all night through and had a walk down the valley this morning to make sure it wasn’t ours. Good news, all are okay. I found them happily in their favourite spot. They have eaten a circle into the high spring grass and apparently cannot keep up with the grass. What a problem for a cow to have…

Beautiful walk in the mist at 5am and brought some wild flowers back up. Actually really refreshing if it wasn’t for the time requirement that early in the morning.

I made a short movie of the early morning valley view:

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Alpaca checkup

Drove down into the valley today to check up on the alpacas and the cheeky moo.
