This hill in the back pasture faces the sun just as our solar panels do. So it is mostly cleared of snow and ice. It’s the only place for the sheep and donkeys to graze beside the frozen marsh, where the long, dry grasses poke through the ice.
There’s so much satisfaction in seeing the animals grazing. It calms them to be able to do what it is their nature to do. Like us humans who have found our calling and are living it.
