Cows through the window

August 18, 2008
Cows through the house window

Our pasture rotation meant that the milking cows were put in the paddock right next to our house last night - it really is a different feeling being inside the house, looking out the window and seeing cows peering back at you from close range! Actually it feels a little strange initially.

The cows really love looking inside the house too! I guess they feel kind of priviledged; Normally it's us going into "their home" and observing them all the time but on this occasion they get to be the observers and can keep tabs on us.

On a separate note, the weather has finally changed and it seems we can say "good-bye, good-riddance" to all that rain for a while - though being a Taranaki winter I'm sure the rain wont stay away for long...
