Picked up the rope lead and a bucket with some grain, and went to fetch Star. She was lying in the snow away from the other cows. Good, as the last time I saw her she was down by the pond again, so saved me the walk back there to get her. Fortunately she was more compliant today, just had to make the swish noise while waving the rope behind her to make her move. Dolly wanted to come with, but successfully wove the electric gate between them, with Star on the outside and Dolly and the 2 curious alpacas on the inside. To stay friends, I tipped some of the grain out for them. Star didn't want to walk on the cleared area, as that's where she fell the other day, so we went rogue, through rather deep snow, must have chilled her udders. Closed the new gate behind her, and went down to tip the rest of the grain into the feed trough, check on the hay situation down there, and ensure she had enough straw. Love the cow patties that land on the straw. They are like solid pucks but at least I can clean them out, unlike the ones ice-glued to the cement floor. Those are going to have to wait for the thaw too.
Found 9 eggs today, including one green one, but no white ones. Wonder about that. Are the girls eating the white ones, as it looks as if at least one of the 4 white leghorns are laying.
Love these sunny days when the snow glitters like diamonds. Just like viewing it from the warmish house.
