The cows have returned to Petersham Meadows after their winter in covered quarters.
Yesterday the cows returned!!! They rushed out of the wagon into the meadow and did a circuit at the gallop around the whole field. They have been in wintering sheds for 6 months and have returned for their 6 months on open grass.
The calves were born in January and have not seen grass or the open meadow until today. See here how they kick their heels and frolic around the meadow alongside their mothers.
Cows on the meadow are an integral part of "the View from Richmond Hill". See: http://www.petershammeadows.org/
