Meanwhile, down at the pond

The herd is down at the little pond between Nebraska and Yukon. (Yes, our geography is ‘creative’.)


It’s all heifers and steers in there.


Blur has a song about looking for heifers who want steers who like steers to be heifers, or something like that:

The grass out there is pretty good given that this was taken in the middle of a hot dry summer.


So begins the annual game where I try to figure out which grass is Timothy and which is Foxtail. The guess here is Timothy, but I’m cheating since I know it was in the seed mix a couple of years ago.

One response to “Meanwhile, down at the pond

  1. I’m surprised there’s just one in the pond! If you’ve said what you do for water in your paddocks, I’ve forgotten. Do tell!
