Livestock in the Fields

I've been seeing a lot of cattle and other livestock out in the fields these days.  Sometimes they've been turned out into hayfields where the last cut has been taken off.  With the cooler weather, I think the animals enjoy being out more than during a hot summer.

This is the nearest herd to home.  On occasion they seem interested, but usually they completely ignore me.

This one at least looked my direction.

Maybe this big fella was embarassed that I caught him in the act!

Just around the corner are the horses at Hope Haven.  I always like driving past to say hello there.

And up the road a bit are the young Alpacas, grazing quite close to the road yesterday.

Finally, up near Meaford are two sheep farms.  One pair was relaxing on the manure pile, while a lamb was desperately trying to keep up as his (or her) mother walked toward me.

I'm not sure the little lamb, obviously a late one this summer, even let go while the ewe was walking.

Until finally they both stopped and looked up at me.
