Not Only Beaver Fodder

The cows were hanging out around and under the bridge during the night for a little protection from the snow. It was a good location, close enough to the river for a drink, only a few steps away from the hedgerow of blackberry briars that they like to snack on and alder trees close by to moderate the wind.

Black heifer snacking on downed alder in river.From my vantage point on the bridge I could see this heifer had another idea. She waded out into the water to eat the delicate tips off the alder that had fallen.

This is the same alder that the beavers have been busy with trying to bark.

When this heifer realized that I was going across the bridge to start the feeding process, she abandoned her nibbling to join the rest of the herd in their quest to get the the outdoor feeders before we could get them filled with hay.
