Out to Pasture

A couple of weekends ago, the weather and ground were deemed good enough to let the herd out to pasture for the first time since being overwintered in the Barn. I’d never seen this amazing event before, so I grabbed my camera to capture the ladies of the herd heading out to pasture. Mark and…
