…so John can make me another hay feeder for the cows. Though Lady Astor would rather I didn’t find any more pipe to make another hay feeder because she loves the lovely soft hay bed I throw down for her every day! To lie in – apparently. (now that I took the good feeder across to the West Barn.)
The car-boot hay feeder (in the header) is not much better.
Peahen camouflage – who knew.
I hope you have a lovely day!
Her Ladyship is looking quite regal 😉
Yes she is.. perfectly happy.. c
Pregnant Ladies deserve a soft bed – at least. Enjoy your Sunday, I bet you are packing and ehm repacking 🙂 Laura
Not yet.. I have not even got my bag down yet, I leave on Friday and this is just a long weekend so not much needed.. c
It drives me crazy when the animals lay on their hay! I understand why they do … just hate to waste any.
Makes me crazy too, but she looks so comfy!.. c
Would it be too much work to use a haynet? Or do you need to give her more than an ordinary haynet holds? You could tie it to the fence or gate to keep it out of the mud and keep her off her feed, if you know what I mean!
Well, firsty there are four cows eating, each cow eats about half a bale a day – those little nets are for horses that are travelling i think – or shows.. She does have other places that the hay is for eating not lying on – but I do like my homemade NZ feeders.. c
We used to have big ones that would take up to half a bale for feeding in the stable, but I can see that it’s a labour for 4 cows. Your proper feeder is clearly the best option!
Though I could hang them from the trees! That would be cool!
I hate it when they lay in their food
And yours are still on pasture – lucky cows.. c
yep, crazy year, but you know…
Lady Astor is a naughty girl – if only she knew how much work goes into growing and garnering that precious hay.
YES! there is so much work in the gathering of their dinner.. c
Wants her cake and it it too!
Eat it. Not enough coffee yet! Enjoy your day!
More old cars instead of more pipe…that’s the call:)
What a nice and soft blanket Lady is lying on ! Such a nice bed she made. I mean cows seem “know” that hay is bi-functional… Hehe.
to know – of course…
Cows are like cats- they sleep wherever they want-no matter the inconvenience for the humans….cheers!
Photos make me think it’s a nice quiet day on the farmy… enjoy! ~ Mame 🙂
Your weather looks better than ours. Enjoy your Sunday!
For some reason, the white background of your text covers a good inch of the bottom of your header photo, so today, for instance, I can only see the tips of someone’s ears. I think it might be Naomi and I can’t see anything below them. Very frustrating.
That must be frustrating – what device are you using? c
What size of pipe are you looking for? Of course it would be quite a drive, but next time I’m at the old farm in Nebraska I could look for treasures! My brother owns the home place (we sold the farm ground years ago) and there are all sorts of materials just sitting around or stacked in the barns. That car trunk that you use as a feeder – what make and model of car is that? Does it have an interesting history? I have always thought that was a good use for a trunk!
It looks like an early/mid 60’s Chrysler Imperial. I’d like to know it’s story also!
It is a Chrysler I think – he used it as a parts car when he restored the convertible.. I call it Cow Art! .. c
We will have to ask John – car information is never in my brain!!
