I really enjoy having the cows close to home. Usually they are off in a more distant paddock and the only interaction is when I visit them to make sure they are ok and in good fettle. They are spending some time in the paddock nearest the house to 'mow' the grass.
Now that it is warm, they have their summer coats on. Thankfully they keep their fringes no matter the temperatures. Actually I think the fringes make perfect fly veils for them. They would annoy me terribly.
When they are not eating grass, they prune. Roses have had a bit of a trim. Yesterday the apricot tree.
And the Jerusalem artichoke 😢.
I have been known to shed a tear or have a rant when sheep, cows , chickens, people, possums... anything gets into my garden. But not today. I'm going to move the girls across the road so the garden is safe. I'm sure the artichokes will grow all the better with the haircut. I hope.
PS River, the cows are Scottish Highlands.
