The new cow track is really taking shape.   I've named it the Super Highway as it looks so much grander than the other cow paths but it won't stay so pristine for long. 

Adrian was right when he commented that the cows won't walk any faster but when there's 400 of them moving from cowshed to paddock, they need to be able to walk more than 2 abreast or they really would be strung out like Brown's cows. 


Just when I've started to get used to the hum of heavy machines in the distance, they will be soon leaving, their work complete.  It's made me appreciate again how lucky I am to live without background noise, except for the occasional passing bike, quad or truck. 

While I was out walking I wondered why I could hear the family goat calling.  He's usually up around the family's home but the sound was coming from near the cowshed.  Sure enough, there he was.  Obviously he's been making a nuisance of himself around the house and has been banished. 

He tried to ignore me, doing his best regal pose.


But he wanted to talk too badly:

  1. That's quite the path you've got going there. The goat is humorous and cute.

  2. Goats are always entertaining. Probably banished for eating something inedible but expensive.

  4. 'super highway' indeed!!
    And the banished goat...how I LOVE goats [their eyes especially!!!]

    And to sit here and read that you can now get used to living in the silence of the countryside again makes me quite envious. Living in the city has its quirks, but oh to have a peaceful surrounding like you..........

  8. Usually cows take their own winding path and speed. But in the matter of efficiency they will have to take the trail made for them.

  9. Well if I'd just seen that super highway without explanation (and without cows on it), my first thought probably would not have been that it must be meant for cows... (town girl that I am!)

  10. He seems quite the willing subject...I can't help but wonder why he was banished. I like the idea of not hearing noise all the time. It is NEVER quiet here and I live in a very small town.

  11. The Superhighway seems like a splendid idea given the size of the farm now. The cattle can get to their pasture and star grazing all the faster. As for the goat....'nuff said.

  12. I'm smiling. It sounds like your goat is an extrovert and wants to be around people. :))

  13. Hahaha! Your goat REALLY looks like he can talk!! Maybe he's jealous of all the attention the cows have got?!?!
