It was a lovely weekend at the farm. It has been cold and rainy for much of the last couple of months. That makes it so much NOT fun to enjoy hiking, working and enjoying the animals. Last week I cleaned the farmhouse so I would be ready for the two nice days predicted by […]
Happy Holidays to all of you from Cowboy and me and all our farm animals!
We had a beautiful “ranch fail” this week. My sweet favorite cow #35 (you have heard me rave on and on about her) for whatever reason did not get bred this last year. I felt so sorry for her as all her cow friends in her pasture had most of their babies in the spring. […]
Had this little cutie last week. This little bull is about 30-40 minutes old in this photo. He was still trying to get his legs “going” while I was photographing him. He was wobbly and stumbling while falling down and getting back up over and over. Mom was extremely mellow and began grazing before he even got […]
I can never get enough of watching new moms and their babies. Sometimes I watch them for hours. It fills ones heart with so many feelings of renewal, joy and love. When I spend my time just watching the calves get dinner my heart seems like it will burst with every good feeling. I feel […]
This little calf is really not named “Little Gray Cloud”; however I named him that because his soft gray color compares to a light gray cloud before a thunderstorm or summer rain. I love his pretty light gray color and we don’t have many gray calves. My fav for sure and he is adorable and spunky […]
She was checking me out before she received her immunizations and worming! Not sure if that look is good, bad or deciding on an opinion!
We are having all the fun at the farm. We are starting to have lots of sweet little calves running around. This one was born a week ago… So very cute!
We have been so incredibly busy at the farm this spring. Lots of work in the pastures getting ready for spring grasses. Work on and in barns. Work in the yard. Getting all the winterizing taken down and put up. I love this time of year, but it is very busy time. Our drought of […]
Today we welcomed the warmest day since last fall. We had a nice sunny warm 86 degree day. The cows enjoyed every minute basking in the sun then moving to the shade of the trees. Such a relaxing scene… Here are a few of the girls getting their beauty rest on this wonderful first taste of summer! So […]
Here is our frosty little red head in the snow earlier in the week. She is just the cutest cow ever. She wants to be around us all the time and she “talks” constantly to get our attention. A very special cow for sure. Once spring officially arrives I think she will be lots of fun as […]
96 takes the cake or… in this case the baby. 96 is not the friendliest cow at the farm, nor does she really like me. 96 , however, is a GREAT mama. She took great care of her calf and was highly protective and loving. Before Christmas her baby went away to another ranch to […]
This week has been lovely weather at the farm so I have been able to be out and about which is what I love. Last weekend we found some old buried junk in one of our dry creek beds. We pulled it out and sent it to the dump. We are not a fan of […]
My previous post introduced “Three Feathers” and everyone loved him! The “clean-up” bull has now arrived at the farm and his name is “Undertaker” and all I can say is… WOW. He is beautiful and huge. He also is very even tempered even though some of you might think he looks a bit fierce. He […]
