  • In case you missed it, April did fool us here in the mountains. That 16-inch snowstorm on April 29 surprised many of us, and that included the horses and cows that live here.

    A mother cow has quite a job cleaning off and licking her newborn calf in such deep snow and the horses have to dig for every bite of grass. Thank goodness for our hay barn containing good solid hay bales. I know the animals said “thank you” when the hay truck rolled out. Yes, it used to be a hay wagon pulled by a tractor.
