a foggy day

Its been damp and foggy here. The weather is not typical December weather for the channeled scablands. Its been in the low 40's! Frosty mornings here and there. With it being so damp, it makes it seem colder!
Feeding cows in the morning, hauling hay the rest of the day. I like feeding the cows. Cameron and I take turns feeding or driving. I prefer to walk along side the feed truck pulling off the hay. The cows give me my space and then I get to pet them! HA! When half the hay is off, I hop on the back and toss the rest off. If you wondered, there is a science to feeding. Two cow lengths between each flake. That way they don't step all over the hay and poop and pee on the flakes. Making sure everyone gets their fair share, that creates less pushing and shoving. And that makes this cowgirl happy when her cows are happy. :)

These were taken as I was standing in the backyard. The view is awesome.




Thanks for stopping by.

  7. There is something mysterious about playing in the fog. I enjoy being out in it. Beautiful pictures. I have been in some along the Pacific that almost appeared like swirling snow. We are back to the frigid cold again.
