Disappearing Snow

2 Mar

We had a lot of snow on the ground, but a week of warm weather means that snow pack is shrinking down.

Saturday morning: Odie not looking happy about the snow still covering the ground; Maybeline

The ISU cows are coming back over to eat instead of hunkering down and waiting for hay deliveries.

I don’t think she likes me.

My girls up north have started exploring the old garden area.

I added Trace to the mix, and she seems to have adopted Blaze and 2TC.  I think that’s a good thing.

With daytime highs in the forties and fifties, the snow is rapidly disappearing.

Sunday mid-afternoon: two days before this, it was pretty much solid snow pack.

That makes us all happy.

But there might still be a few more that get snuck in here or there.

Social Distancing

9 Jan

The visiting ladies are pretty content out on the cornfield.

ISU cows

I generally say “hi” when I’m close to them, but they still are not too sure about me.

The other day, it looked like they were a bit jealous of the goats getting hay.  I thought they wanted room service too.

I tried talking to them, and they took off.

They acted like I was a coyote coming after them.

All I did was offer them an ear of corn.

That was a resounding “no” for an answer.

That’s okay.

Bambi, Maisie, and Cupid

My girls were happy to try a bite of it.

Bambi

Bambi was actually pretty good at getting some off the cob.
