Photo Friday: Green grass and happy cows


I’m just a little proud of how this photo turned out…

It’s taken all summer, but we finally have some mud in the pasture. The grass is bright green, and the cows are happy. It doesn’t take long to remember the drought that encompasses so much of the country though.

I’m in Arkansas today and seeing first-hand the worst of the drought in the cattle pasture. In case a few of you are longing to see the color so far gone, I thought I’d share with you today from Middle Tennessee.

Can you identify the tall, green grass in the photos?

Keep in mind, the rain will come in due time. It’s just a matter of sticking it out and making the best management decisions possible until that time comes.
