After four very wet days in Hastings we headed back toward home on Friday in brilliant weather.
We had been invited to call into Don and Sandra’s rural property for a couple of night’s. It’s always nice to get out on the farm for some R & R.
It transpired that Don was heading away on Sunday morning to Fielding with the Vintage Machinery club, so Saturday evening we fed out some baleage (silage) ready for moving the cattle onto fresh pasture on Sunday morning. As Don wanted to be away early Sunday morning it was to be my job to feed out a couple of bales of hay and shift the cattle.
Easy peasy, the only problem was having Dot with me the cattle were a bit shy of strangers and took a bit of coaxing even though they may have been hungry. They eventually plucked up the courage to move through the open gateway and were soon tucking into their favourite fodder.
