For me, Spring is officially here!

For me, I transitioned from winter to spring. Saturday was the first day that I did not feed any hay. We brought the two groups of cattle together which included new calves leaving the field they were born in for the first time and headed them down the road. It also included them crossing the creek for the first time which is quite entertaining. First, they do not want to be near the water and when they do go, some of them will jump off the bank and sometimes into deep water; it reminds me of a “belly flop” off the diving board, and all managed just fine. When the two groups of cattle got together, there was the “annual battle” of the cows, trying to establish a new pecking order with the herd. When it was settled, we moved them to the new pasture, and all was well. We also tried to mow part of the yard Saturday, but it was too wet, and we also moved out the patio furniture and had supper on the porch. Finally, I shaved off my winter beard, signaling winter is over for me and spring is officially here!
