Cow update: See where they have gone

You may recall last May when I told you about the cute pair of cows that came to live on my farm, on loan from my friends, Judy and Michael Steinhardt. They are a small breed of cattle known as miniature Herefords. Dandy and Clover, as they came to be known, seemed very content in their paddock and had plenty of thick, healthy grass to eat whenever they got hungry.

With the change of the seasons and the arrival of cold weather, it was time to return Dandy and Clover back to the Steinhardt’s property, where the Herefords are provided with indoor shelter. I’m told that everyone there was amazed at how fat this pair got. Who knew that a diet of grass and dandelions could pack on the pounds!
