leather coats

Yesterday the high temperature was in the low 40's. The low was cold..all the hoses froze.

On days like that we work to position ourselves in the sun. To help warm us up. We wish our house was passive solar, and dream of knocking out the wall between the dining room and the kitchen, so the sunshine can reach into where we prepare food.

But the cattle, in their thick winter coats, opted for the shade. Plenty of sunshine in their paddock..plenty of grass too..and they ate until it came time to chew their cud and then did so in the shade. The grass was frosty, the air from their nostrils came out as steam. And still they opted for the shade.

Not us! Or Sandi. We all track the sunshine all day, and work to be where that is. Of course we don't have thick layers of leather hides either.
