The fields are coming alive

The hardy sheep winter out in the fields and some breeds fo cattle like the Highlands with their shaggy coats.Milk cows are housed for the winter months. It was always and exciting time on the farm when I was a child on the day that they left the cows out. It was time for them to stretch their legs ,feel the spring grass under their feet and hopefully feel the warmth of the sunshine on the backs. As I was travelling up towards the Hole of Horecum on the Moors I noticed these cows which would have just come out of the milk palour and turned out for the day . If it had been the first day they would have looked more like the cow which jumped over the moon.
