We have had several big storms lately. Yesterday we were doing cattle work with the calves and then put them into one of our maternity paddocks for them to eat the grass down.
A storm was coming.
The cows put all the calves in one corner and then the cows stood around the outside of the group! There were two lines of cows protecting their calves from the severity of the storm. As you would expect all the cows also had their tails to the approaching storm.
The photo was taken just as the animals were starting to move away from the tightly knit group.
