This photo didn’t make my cut for photos to send to the publisher so it isn’t a real sneak preview – just more exclusive PNW Rancher content like you get every day. It was sad it didn’t get to be in the magazine until I said it could be featured on my blog.
Thanks to Jess Davenport for sending me the photo!
Cows need fed on Christmas, just like they need fed on Mondays, Thursdays and every other day in between. It was such an awe-inspiring beauty of a day that the cattle photos didn’t make the cut for the website. Check ‘em out on Facebook instead.
Hold on to your knickers, I actually decorated for Christmas this year. With real effort and everything.
Every fall, the calves are weaned from their mommas. A couple weeks later (pending the year), the momma cows are gathered up and trucked down to canyon pastures before winter snows cover up the remaining mountain pasture grass.
We had our first real snow this weekend, so I think everyone is pretty happy they’re not all standing around up here.
