Herding Home

We’re slowly leading cattle out of the hills into lower pasture closer to home. They’ll be having their calves soon and we don’t need daily trips into the snowy hills looking for cows and their babies.

It was cold and windy but at least the sun came out occasionally which created nice lighting.
Usually my view while herding is full of backsides.

So I moved around front to get their beautiful faces.

They went through the gate and that gave me a minute to get a shot of the gorgeous view from up high.

The beautiful Cooney Hills were lit through the overcast sky.

Once we got into the next pasture, Patrick set out mineral tubs and salt for them. They LOVE this stuff.

I stayed back. I know not to get in the way of a pregnant woman and her sweet tooth!

    The view from up high is gorgeous; you’re right! Happy the herd made it home safe and sound.
    Beautiful pictures, Leah.

      Thanks Eden! Yeah, even when it’s cold and breezy, the light will do something special for me.

    I have to admit I am jealous of your daily view. It looks so peaceful and untouched. Your blog has inspired me to visit your beautiful state 🙂

    I think cows are so beautiful, I love the picture where you moved to the front!

      Thanks so much! Sometimes I spook them when I get in front of them, but they had their eyes on one thing. Mineral tubs and hay! 🙂
