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 really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
