Yesterday I posted about how we feed our cows....and today I thought I'd show you a few pictures from when Clint was feeding our Charolais cows later that night.
We don't flake hay out for the Charolais cows because they can all get around our feeder at the same time, and because we don't have any horses in their pasture. Because no one is fighting to get to feed, or being chased away by horses (stinkers) we can just put chunks of alfalfa bales into the feeder on top of the grass or grain hay that is always available. Clint spreads it out on top so everyone has equal access and he can easily do that by himself, so I stayed by the gate with the boys while he ran chunks of alfalfa in with the skidsteer.
Cal was taking a little snooze, so I pushed Chandler around in his little car while Clint took alfalfa in.
The Charolais babies are growing!!! I still love the Slasher calves, they are thick and have the most fun markings!
Once the Char's were fed, we headed in for dinner.
Clint pushed Chan and I pushed Cal. We bought Chan's Little Tikes car off of Craigslist for $20 in Boise while we were there for a fair Clint was judging this summer and it has been well worth it! I know it's pink, but Chandler doesn't know any different and just LOVES to "drive" it. I love that it can be pushed with one hand, has drink holders and a little storage cubby so he can keep his tractors safe while he drives.
It was a gorgeous night to be out as a family! It's supposed to turn cold this weekend, but so we'll bundle more than usual - but you'll still find us outside feeding the cows. :)
