Woke up this morning to the sound of thunderstorms - Very Thankful! Our grass was just beginning to get "crispy." It's been a while since we had any rain of any real noticeable amount. Only one inch in the rain gauge today, but we are thankful for every drop! This time of year is normally a dry time, but lately it seems what little the rain has been nearby has gone either to the north or south of us. It amazes me how the grass can look almost dead and with just a little rain, it springs back into new life.
It's so funny how differently the cows and goats react to rain. The cows could not care less and actually act as if they like it. The goats duck and hide, as if the rain will make them melt. The first hint of rain and they are running for the barn. Surprisingly, when we had the Boer meat goats, they didn't seem to avoid rain like the dairy goats do.
