It is a measure of Sheila’s trust in me that she would trudge all the way across the snow drift that has had her cooped up all this time and come out for a walk. (Though she has balked at it three days running so I guess she trusts me when she feels like it) .
Then across she came. Like an ice-breaking barge in heels. She did not appreciate me taking a photo of her navigating the silly footpath I had made for her. But even Marmalade came out for a walk.
People and pigs need time in the sun, whether it is cold or not. Winter is hard on warm blooded animals.
Once she was across/through my little path she trotted about Daisy’s field eating any grass she could find. Everyone needs their greens in this wintery weather too.
Getting back through the Ice Floe was not quite as graceful – having missed the path while wondering about dinner. Don’t worry she made certain to let me know I had Erred. I love that pig. Sheila my big fat pig.
Lady Aster is becoming the lead cow in the teensy herd. She is a lovely gentle cow. And much wider than Elsie.
I took Camera House Across The Way yesterday to show you the calves. They are doing very well in and out of their big beautiful barn.
They are growing fast. Shiny even in their winter coats.
Aunty Del is a beautiful wee heifer – destined to be a big player on the farmy in the next couple of years. It takes a long time to grow a milk cow. Lucky you and I are in for the long haul.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farm
