Letters from a Hill Farm
I just love how animals stick to the same path. A sense of order.
Round here we have lots of little peep-holes in the hedgerows where badgers, foxes, rabbits have their short cuts, with a corresponding hole in the opposite hedge.
We have trails like this too. Cows used to be pastured on our property and their trail-walking habit actually formed some little one-cow-wide "terraces" on the back hill. There is a level trail pounded out by hooves (hoofs? lol!) over time, carved out of the steep slope of the hill. And of course, generally speaking, when I walk on that part of our property, I follow the cow path. ;)
Gosh, Aisling, that's wonderful. You ought to write about this on your blog. I'd love to see the pictures! And thank you for coming back and commenting.
I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond. Sometimes that's taken a while, so I've decided to moderate them and post them as soon as possible, and then I'll respond when I get a chance.Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
