Apart from the usual pheasants, swans, ducks, herons and the phenomenal array of birds in the garden we now have a herd of cows!

Both sides of the river infront of The Glen House are strewn with cows of all sorts of colours.

They really enjoyed the freshly cut grass from the lawn, lovingly fed to them by The Glen House’s very own Dr Doolittle!

Did you know…. Cows spend 10 to 12 hours a day lying down. The average sleep time of a domestic cow is about four hours a day; unlike horses, they don’t sleep standing up!

According to Farming With Compassion “Cattle were domesticated as long ago as the Neolithic age and have been kept as livestock ever since for their meat, milk and hides….”

“Historically there was less distinction between dairy cattle and beef cattle, with the same breeds used for both milk and meat. However today farmers generally keep either beef or dairy cattle….” These gorgeous beef cattle are being reared on sweet, sweet grass.

Meet Mr P. the pheasant! The photo isn’t great because I was far back away from the window,Β  normally if you get to close he legs it.

I love my pheasants and the deer and robins and the heron and the swans and the crazy ducks…. Theses photos were taken back in October:
