THE BOARDERS HAVE MOVED IN



Yeah, I wish these were ours.  We missed the boat so to speak on the lower cattle prices just before Christmas so now we host our neighbours’ cattle when their feed runs low.  We have come to an arrangement with them (the neighbours) and these guys came down yesterday afternoon.




The only downside is Jessie, one of our dogs, is not used to seeing them up close and is being quite noisy about it.  She’ll calm down once she realizes they are supposed to be there and haven’t just busted in from the road where they usually graze in the afternoons.

I’m enjoying seeing them meandering around our paddock today in the gorgeous sunshine. They usually stay down in the longer grass but this afternoon they have come up to the house yard fence to check out the mown grass and some young fodder trees we have planted.

As usual, yesterday's sunset.

  1. Cute boarders, Barb and a nice sunset too. Am on the bus from the airport and just going through Plainlands. It will be cool at home I guess.
