With these older guys I have learned to make gradual changes in their feed and daily routines. Unfortunately they get very little exercise and in this area the green grass comes on fast in the spring. So they get "slowly" reintroduced to their pasture each year when the snow melts off here in the valley.
Spring in this area is a mixed bag of high wind, sunny days, snow flurries, very cold nights, and it can all change drastically from one day to the next. Today was a beautiful day with sunshine and warmer temperatures. Here are a few snaps of my two lazy guys enjoying about an hour on the small pasture this morning. It is amazing how quickly this old brown dead grass turns to lush green protein.... way too much protein for these two characters.
Spring is springing......
May of last year ... too much green grass!
