Calves Learning to Graze in the Rhombus Field

Calves learning to graze

Colour is fading fast on the marsh now.

Whatever energy there is in the Rhombus Field vegetation is being pulled down into the roots. It will be time to move the herd onto the north marsh for the winter very soon.

I walked over the whole Rhombus Field today, and a surprising number of snipe took to the air to avoid my size 12 wellies.

I’m hearing rumours of a change in the weather next week, with the arrival of a “Beast from the East”. I’m all sorted with plenty warm clothing. Hopefully, the herd will be able to handle the cold weather, too!

  1. Bitter cold here in Illinois for this time of year but at least we are fire-free.

    Do you mow the reeds or is that all the work of the cattle?

    The beast from the east may be the the system that is going to give New York snow today. We send on our leftovers.
