Shortly after we arrived here in the Auvergne, a tractor came up our hill, pulling behind it a cart behind it. In the cart were two your cows, which were being delivered to a field behind our house. Some electric wires and two more trips by the farmer, and we now had five bovine neighbors.
For the past few weeks, they have been contentedly grazing through sunshine, but mostly rain and some rather terrifying storms. Every time I opened the back window, they looked up curiously at me. Obviously, I am was as entertaining to them as they have been all these weeks.
This morning, the fence was gone and the cows were gone. Obviously, while I was busy with other things, the farmer has moved them to another field. I hope!

Here is a photo taken by my friend Marion, who was visiting us for a few days.  See what I mean about  the cows' curiosity?
