Haying in the Snow

Spence sent me these pictures from his phone last week (or two) when it snowed.  He and Trey went up on top to throw out hay since all of the grass the cows had been munching on was now covered in snow.  We got a lot more snow up on the ranch than in town or at our house (yay!).  I thought these pictures were really cool.  As they drove around with the hay, cows were streaming in for miles and following the “chuck wagon”.

This is the view out of the front windshield.  There should be a road in front of them that they are driving on.

Spence said that the cows had been lined up single file behind a feeder trying to get out of the wind and snow, but as soon as they saw the truck, they all bee-lined for them.

A little bit farther up on the ranch.  A new set of hungry cows.

I went up with Spence the next day to feed at the White Corrals, and we got stuck (but could still back up and get out) several times.  The drive that normally takes 7 minutes took about 45.

Cows always entertain me. Not sure if they are really dumb or really smart...

WOW! That is amazing. I don't think I've seen that much snow at home for a long time. Looks like the moon in that first picture.

That definitely reminds me of Alaska.
