Winter may have finally arrived today. We got enough snow to cover the ground and make the roads slick. The cows look like they have been dusted with confectioners sugar.
The cows really like a strict schedule. Here they are eagerly waiting for their 5 p.m. appetizer. I give them a scoop of dried corn both morning and evening before I fill their hayfeeders and they really feel entitled to that treat, mooing grouchily if I am late. Now that there isn't really anything to graze in the pasture they consume about one bale of hay among them per day. That is precisely what the farmer who sold me the hay guesstimated they would eat. At that rate, we still need to get about 100 more bales to get through the winter.
