You know it's really springtime on Clear Creek Road.....
...when the neighbors come back.
But these aren't your typical snowbirds or sun chasers. Nope, these neighbors follow the food.
The grass is plentiful and sweet this time of year, perfect for mama cows and their growing calves. Many pastures across this fair land will have cows grazing during the warm months, but few will have this particular breed of cattle. These are Scottish Highlanders, a very unique breed known for their thick coats of hair, small and compact bodies, and flavorful cuts of beef. I've never eaten one, but I sure do enjoy watching them.
Welcome back Neighbors! We missed you!
