With the summer winding down, it was time for the 3 tenant cows to head back to their home farm for breeding before winter. Now the goats get to have the run of the pastures until spring.
Here is a close-up of the cows at their water trough a few days before they went back home. Bell comes up close to check out the camera.

This summer, the cows were very interested in our dogs and would follow the dogs around the outside edge of the pasture when we were taking the dogs on their walks. Despite some barks and growls from the dogs when they got too close, the cows weren’t fazed and didn’t mind getting close up to the dogs to check them out.
We expect to have 3 new cows next spring (likely some of which will be the offspring from the cows we hosted in summer 2015)!
