New Cows on the Block


We had two newcomers arrive at the farm at the end of last week—these two are Sussex Cattle, grazing within a stone’s throw of our house. I was thrilled when my husband noticed them from our bedroom window and could tell they weren’t horses. (I come from a long line of farmers; he comes from a long line of city people, and his animal identification abilities aren’t up to much.) Then again, he knows how to work the television, which may well be a handier life skill than distinguishing a cow from a horse.
