Way Down Muddy Lane




Rockbridge County, VA, is an area of rock, hills, mountains, rivers, and lots of farms. I found this one last week and wish I could tell you which way the cows were going...to the old barn atop the hill, and just rambling down the hill. Maybe they were just grazing in more or less of a line. Who knows?  I do think they add personality and charm to the pictures. I do know one thing....barns, cows, and old farm houses are definitely my world way out here in the county.

This post is linked with Tricia’s Barn Charm and Our World Tuesday.

  4. I saw how the cows zig-zagged up the hill and wondered why the farmer strung out the hay that way. Maybe each one needs their space at meal time. :)
    Like the barn on top of the hill against the sky.
    Best Wishes for a very Happy Birthday tomorrow!!

  12. I agree that the cows do add character and charm to the photos. It's so cute that they form some sort of an orderly pattern.

  14. Oh I DO hope there really is a trail named Muddy Lane near that barn.

    If those were dairy cows, and if it was close to 5 am or pm, they would be going in a line like that toward the barn to be milked. That is a common sight here in Wisconsin - - - only MOST of the cows would be the traditional black and white Holsteins.

  17. Fun! It looks like the farmer may have dumped hay out along that path that the cows are taking. The rest looks pretty well picked over, so that's the easiest food to get.

  19. That IS funny how they're lined up like that! LoL! The barn is awesome!
    The landscape in these shots look a lot like the landscape west of here in south central Missouri, very hilly w/ lots of farms dotting the countryside.

    Thanks for joining =)
