    Happy cows.

    Everything looks so green and lush. It’s lovely. Here (in Nova Scotia, Canada), all the grass is yellow still. There is the odd spot that looks like it it is greening up, but we’ve got a ways to go yet to see the green you have. Green makes me think of happy summer days.

    Look at all that green grass. Everything here is brown still and my rhubarb is just breaking the ground. Think I will just sit here and enjoy yours for awhile : )

    I checked our rhubarb yesterday, and it’s just sprouting, all of 3″ high. Such a difference here in Western Mass.

    What is your criteria for moving cows to pasture? My fescue & orchard grass are doing fine but the clover is slow due to a cool spring. I’m concerned the clover will be grazed too soon if I put them on pasture now so I wait. Your picture here looks like my pasture does now though.

      Kristin, I’ll post about that tonight. Big paddocks are the key in early spring.

        Thanks, NIta. Looking forward to that post!

        Looking forward to the post. We’re moving quickly through small paddocks. Several moves each day. Same effect, more hoofprints.

    I found your site a few months ago, and I’ve really enjoyed your posts. Love the green, green grass.

    Green with envy over all your green! We are anticipating more snow -shovelable amounts- in Southern MInnesota by tomorrow.

    Snowed three inches here. So sad….

    I think we’re definitely in spring now, but several weeks behind what you’re showing. My rhubarb shoots are just tiny knobs at ground level. I’m still feeding hay too. But, it smells like spring and that smell never lies 🙂

    Is that Blake on your header with Jane? She’s turned into some hybrid…

      Yeah for spring! Yep that’s Blake, and she just got put in with the herd 15 minutes ago, we are cautiously watching from the kitchen window – lots of shenanigans 🙂 She’s holding her own though.

    Grass isn’t growing here yet and my rhubarb has only just started to show signs of growth. Spring is way behind schedule here in the Uk 😦
