In the lower Bella Coola Valley this past weekend, the fields have all bared off of snow.  These cows in the photo at the Harested farm seemed pretty happy about that.  They were contently grazing on the dry grass and enjoying the mild temperatures.  After the Great Flood of 2010, many of the folks with livestock were in a bad way for hay, because a lot got ruined when barns were inundated with 4-6' of water.  Efforts were made to get the hay replaced from places in the Chilcotin, but still a big loss to lose your hard earned winter hay crop.  The more days we get like today where horses and cows can find their own on the field, the better off everyone will be.  Grizzly

  1. that's an understatement! now, we have to wonder if there will be hay due to all the silt deposits and erosion. fingers crossed.
