Cow and Bison Sunday Lunch

   Posted by: admin   in Farm and Wild Series

The first photo of our Farm & Wild Series.  We caught this friendly shot this Sunday as one of our cows (middle with back to us) decided that the bisons (upper left looking a bit displeased) know where the really good grass is and followed them to a cozy distance near the pond.  They continued to enjoy the grass peacefully together for a long time.

Very bucolic. But how do you contain your cows in your property?

We had a fence all around the property but that is hard to maintain with the bisons and elephants stepping on it. So we have given up on that. The cows do go out. Like in this photo actually the cow is in the neighbouring plot as our land ends just after the pond. But they seem to know where to return each evening. But luckily our neighbours have not objected yet. That is a point too. So lets see what to do about that eventually. One thought on that – as our pastures get healthier as we are attempting to do now, the cows will have less incentive to go out of our property.

Around the back of our house on Tiger Hill we have a small field and then the forest. Two herds of Bison have made this their safe place to relax, roll on grass, eat from the fence of our wild garden [usually “Morning Glory”- their favourite creeper.
The bison have strange friends – there are two black and white cows with red scarves, a teenage brown bull and last week they brought along a small herd of spotted deer.
We must have done something right in our lives to have this beautiful scene right outside our windows.
Because this is their safe place they even roll on the grass. The most amazing site a two ton bison lying on his back and kicking his legs in the air with the sheer joy of living.
