Sky over Drayton

Some weather system came over 

lots of dust flying, 
this was just a mini dust cloud

The pictures I took from the car are all shaky 

but we stopped for gas and then the camera could focus

cool clouds over Drayton

Growing Temperatures

It always amazes me

how plants can grow

from just a tiny seed

It's all emerging now

such a nice time of the year

Pasture Pictures

This picture I took a while ago to show Olga the layout of the pasture
this is the dry cow pasture up until the door to the milk cows

On the right is the "training" pasture for dry and close up heifers
closer to the creek the extended pasture for the same group

The milk cow pasture is in front of the house

hard to see with the trees in leaf

the cows love it, and so do we

Marc on the Spinner

Marc came by our place on the Spinner

It's a big machine to drive on the road

The tires are a bit taller then Rien

On his way to Markdale
trying to stay on secondary roads

The Beans are in

Hi Matt

All done!

The grass on the hill has a lot of yellow flowers

this evening the cows are outside for the first time during the night

Cows don't like hot weather

so even though they could have gone out in the day they all came in

they got what they wanted, out during the night

a beautiful sunset

Nice surroundings

some like their hotdogs black
