Last week we ran out of cull carrots. So, I bought a 5 pound bag of California carrots to hand out as treats. I gave the first treat to Bella. She chewed it a while and then spit it out. I then threw down another carrot for all comers to fight over. They sniffed and nuzzled that carrot but it was never eaten. Amazing for cows that just days before had been used to eating three thousand pounds at a time. In fact, when it was carrot time they would get pretty vocal with impatience- they loved them.

After fixing the fence I walked in and the red head was pretty subtle. Normally it is easy to find the calf by just following the gaze of mom but she gave no such clues. I finally found him hidden behind a log and sat on him just as he was leaping out. After the tag- #65- he was not wanting to run- just gave me that very disappointed hurt look.

The swallows are nesting today. I had decided they had passed us by this year because it is so dry.
