Noses to the ground....

There's still some grass sticking up out of the snow so the cattle, sheep and horses still do some grazing, but with the cold days we've been having, the extra energy from hay and cake makes a big difference to everyone's bellies.  It's all noses to the ground when the feed gets spread out.

 (mature cows)

 (a few young cows)

 The ewes hear me honking and come out of their hiding place.

(Noses to the ground, it's time to eat)

  1. Wow...the pictures are great. They really show the cold. Love all those sheep headed your way!!

  2. Jody, those photos are absolutely fabulous! It's the same around here, extra hay when it's nasty cold and, especially, when it's raining or sleeting.

  3. Beautiful! I especially love the horses. That is the stuff of paintings. I went to that link of the place where you linked in an earlier post..Duluth Trading Post, I think. What a great sense of humor they have! Loved browsing their website.

  4. Brrr! Everyone needs to eat plenty to stay warm. I love your photos. BTW- Why do you call the male sheep "bucks"? I've always wondered that. Keep cozy!

  5. You made me miss feeding. Shoveling corn out the back of the pickup, riding in the silage wagon, and rolling out the round bales. Thanks for the memories.

  6. I get colder just looking at your photos. Stay warm.

  7. Thinking of you as you go about your essential work out in the cold and have enjoyed reading your last few posts. I do like to see your photos of the animals feeding and especially them coming quickly for their food that will keep them going.

  8. Brrrrrrrr. I love your animals. They always look organized, cared for and plentiful!

  9. Oooooh, they look so cooooold! Your blast has finally hit us -- not nearly as cold, but we were below zero this morning. I ALWAYS think of you in this bitter cold weather -- and your animals. Stay warm!!!

  10. My goodness what harsh conditions for you to work and live in! The photographs are beautiful though.

  11. I love those shots of the trail of ewes...dear things, doing what they were created to do.

  12. Brrr. It looks so very cold. The Advent light will keep you warm.

  13. Goodness! Look at your snowy sheep! At last I'm catching up on all my blog friends' posts and enjoying the reading. What snow you've had! Glad your animals are so well cared for, Jody. It's a joy to read about.

  14. I too am spending time catching up today. Oh how I enjoy your blog. I just wanted to say that I always find your photos so amazing! I am in LOVE with these ones! Especially all the ewes in their lines coming for sustenance. So beautiful! Love Pentatonix too!
