The view of the front yard of Fernnook Farm these days.





























The reason my front yard is decorated with cows these days is
because of the following.

There is nothing to eat in the fields. We tried to lead
this set of cows to my Dad's property, and finally one day
this week Kent did get them to follow him there, but when
we looked out the front door 20 minutes later they were
turning back into our yard from the gravel. I guess they
felt out of their element back on the old homeplace.

Kent is feeding hay and grain, but they are still finding
bits to nibble here and there in our yard.

By the way, we've not mowed since the beginning of July.

OH, and a big Thank You to Uncle Jim for the weather updates!
He tells me the average high for August is 100.8 and the average
low is 72.5. Mighty hot for SE MO weather.

The next step for the cows is indoors. We definitely need rain.

Those poor ole cows!

I wish we could send you some of the wet stuff we have gotten over the summer months...and today it the breeze was actually chilly!

I wish I could send you some of our unseasonably mild summer weather. All things taken together, we got a break this year, both temp-wise and water-wise.

I haven't had to make it through a hot spell coupled with drought in a long time, but I remember a couple from when I was a kid. Not fun. Here's hoping you have a break soon.
