Cows are Out to Pasture

The two old retired cows we kept when we sold the milking herd went to pasture this morning, along with the big beef heifer. 

I wish I had paid more attention to them this spring. In winter they are kept down in the old heifer barn, which the kids use for their operations, and I hadn't gone in lately to look at them.

We wanted to send the big heifer to freezer camp last fall but didn't get it done. Figured this spring she'd need a couple weeks at grass to finish. 

If only I had looked at her. She is coming off winter as fat as a hog on just good hay. Now we are going to have to catch her when we are ready to send her.

Mad props to Liz for keeping them looking so good all winter...the old cows look pretty darned good too, especially since they are 10 or 11 years old....and to the boss for making such good hay.
