Strolling of the Heifers Brattleboro,VT

The 8th annual Strolling of the Heifers, in Brattleboro, VT. 
What is a Heifer? A Heifer is a cow(female) from the time they 
are born till they have a calf of their own. The Strolling is a
Celebration of Farming and local life, in the best way.
   If you have yet to see this event I highly recommend it. 
Nothing like seeing people walking in the middle of the road never mind cows!

First 2 photos are from the lovely folk at Lilac Ridge Farm, with HEnry(age 6), and Calvin (age 5) in the lead.
