Mahru solo and with her band

While molesting birch-trees...

Great Pasture has two advantages over First Pasture (we used to use till now): it is more than twice the latter's size (so our herd have had to circle it in full gallop two and a half times immediately after entering there last evening - to celebrate the joy of being freed from "the box"...) - and it offers many bushes and shrubberies.
