I have walked over many mountain meadows, and believe me they are not so easy to walk on as it seems. They are usually not flat, but tend to rise and fall and of course beware of the various recycling material left by the wandering cows. They just let it fall and generally flatten it with their hooves, but do not despair. The material becomes homes for various insect families, especially flies. They have their own nursery system – yes a meadow is a living thing.
