Yes very good eye. I would imagine that a few weeks ago you could have taken a photo of the sunrise then have a coffee and turn around and take the sunset.

That's about the size of it. And in June you never see it rise or set.

I look at these kind of frigid pictures of cattle and wonder sometimes if I'm just being foolish when I worry about mine being out in below 30 degF temps and frozen rain/sleet or just above freezing, windy and constant drizzle. One of my yearling bulls had icicles hanging off his haircoat last week, back humped up and just standing with his butt in the wind and it's one of the few times I've seen it here and I felt bad about it.

How much of a cow's ability to handle weather is genetic and how much is acclimation?
If one of my Char/sims were to go to your area during warm months, would it freeze to death in deep winter?

excellent pics!
We have really ugly weather right now, windy, raining.. I'd take freezing over this crud any day.. 15F is about perfect weather!
As long as the cows have a full belly and are dry, they do alright.. My cows start to get pizzed about the cold at -10F and they certainly eat more.

I think cold and wet is far worse than very cold and dry.
One of your cows if brought here might have a bit of a rough first winter but not bad, then would never look back. Probably come to thank me for adopting her every day during the summer :lol2:
