Grazy Days

The summer rains are filling in the greens for the cattle and any other grazing critter that gets to come out and about. We've let Gucci, Karma and Baby Cow (the steer) wander for a couple of days now all over the property. They're enjoying all the free salad they can nip off, a neverending supply of mesquite bean pods, and when they head back to their corral, they still get some alfalfa hay--though they don't seem all that interested in the hay now.

The wild amaranth is coming in, along with a variety of grasses, purslane and the alfalfa in the pasture area, which they have access to. I love to see the property greening up, but it'll be nice when the weather starts cooling down again.
