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.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
