We were lucky not to meet any of them.
The hunters were out in the forest today again and will most likely be out there the entire week. Most hunters take a week’s vacation when the moose hunting season starts so even if they already might have shot what they are allowed to they have nothing else to do so they’ll most likely go out there anyway 🙂
We walked in to the village yesterday and I really didn’t want to walk there again, so instead of walking on the road where they had put up signs we walked in the big cow pasture beside it. The problem was that I had no idea if the cows might be in that part of the pasture or not 🙂 It is not a good thing to meet a cow with a calf if one is walking there with dogs.
But I figured that if we would see any cows and calves I would have time to toss the dogs over to the pasture on the other side of the fence, the cows would have no interest in me so I would be able to walk on one side of the fence and the dogs on the other. The cows know very well how the electric fence works so they would understand that the dogs would be no threat to their calves.
We were however lucky and didn’t meet any animal until we were on our way out of the pasture and the one we met was a calf without its mother hanging around. It has been a nice day today but now deep grey clouds hang above our heads. There’s no rain predicted but even I can see that the nature now need rain, it is so dry that even the mushroom dries out and dwindles.
It is time for something to eat and a pot of cocoa. No need for a fire in the stove today and by looking at the predictions it won’t be necessary for some days more.
Have a great day!
