Next to the barn across from the goat's gated area, are the chickens. Then I head on past the many pastures of horses I've come to know (one of my best horse eye photos came from one of the blue eyed horses along this route) and finally to the cows. Two new cows came up to me today. 0-31 and 1-31 each came to my hand a couple of times. I petted one on the nose like you'd pet a horse and he jumped. I'm guessing he's never felt that before. As usual, twenty or so cows circled around and stood endlessly watching me in a tight crowd. This was my 4th visit and I didn't see my buddy, 1-29, in the herd. I hope he hasn't been sent ... away.
Along the way are always birds - all kinds. I saw some deer on the way back, which are almost as common to see as a horse.
