Milking this morning I arrived on farm and it had been raining most of the night and was still raining. The cows where I milk have access to their kenneling over night, so they can lie out or lie in cubicles in the dry if they wish. The photos below show that although raining, they preferred to be lied up outside this morning. The only time in the summer you might find several in the cow kennels is when very hot and the flies are about.
This time of year with the cows I get to do my favourite thing with them. Which is 'Bringing in the cows.' I could use the bike in the morning, but I prefer to walk out round them. Something about walking in with a herd of cows, especially as day is breaking that I really enjoy, but for the life of me could not explain to you why. Most just think I'm daft not to use the bike to round them up with.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
