Beefy Bossies

In the early morning light, the cattle in the field behind my house look a bit cold. 

A couple of hours later, the sun had melted the bit of snow on their backs.

They can go indoors at any time but prefer to sleep outdoors most nights.

 

These were not taken the same day, by the look of the snow cover.

Tough beasts Mary !
Care MacADNski: There are babies of about 3 months out there some days. They choose this rather than the barn. They ARE tough.

The mood is pretty somber here.
Care MacADNski: It is first light.
Jolie ambiance brumeuse.
Care MacADNski: It does look misty though it is cold and had snowed a bit.
Oh they look chilly!
Animals don't seem to notice cold or heat the way we do...
Sweet ballad...
Care MacADNski: I know. They can walk right into the barn any time they want. Even babies are out here in any weather.

A new song for me but I was in the 70's soul music category and there was the perfect title.

They look contented, Care.
Care MacADNski: They truly are. I suppose if we were that big, we might have enough padding to keep the inside warm enough.

It's fascinating how the sun can change a feel of an image. In the sunnier image, it could be the temperature was still the same as in earlier shot but just feels warmer.
Care MacADNski: Yes, early morning light, usually blue looks much cooler. As well, the rising sun is at it's yellowest part soon after. Warms the scene right up.

They are hardy beasts Mary
Care MacADNski: In other winters babies have been born out there. Many nursing babies stay out with these big beasts too, whenever they want to be.
They look in prime condition Care
Care MacADNski: He grows very good hormone-free beef. It became a beef farm almost 30 years ago. Previously they had a dairy herd and I loved those friendly well-handled cows.

Peter was telling me how popular beef is to eat in Canada.
Care MacADNski: Very much so. Yesterday, New Years Day, I served steak. My daughter was having roast beef.
I guess cattle are built to put up with snow on their backs.
Care MacADNski: I think they have pretty thick skins.
i like how you took these photos Mary in the mist first and we can see the snow on their backs... as the sun came out the snow was starting to melt and in the last third one it was nice and bright and i see some of the babies... good series Care/Mary....petersmile
Care MacADNski: I love when there were dairy cows in these fields. They were friendly.
