Many Faces of Orphan Andy

Our Orphan Andy is just the best little donkey. He has a personality as big as the world. I just wish he could speak in human words because he would have so much to impart to us. Our feelings are strong as he lost his lovely mom at 20 days old and we have loved […]

Cow Babies Are Back

The “baby” pasture has been very busy this week! I think when I counted yesterday there were around nine or ten new babies. What a happy time here at the farm. The babies give us much joy and I spend lots of time just standing and watching the fun. Nothing cuter than little cow babies […]

Texas Touch

We have a new “visitor” at the farm. His name is “Texas Touch” and actually he has been visiting the girls for about a month. All the girls have been AI (artificially inseminated) so now Texas Touch is visiting just in case the AI did not take with any of the cows. I have been […]

Sing To My Babies

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 […]

Ranch Fail

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. […]

July Baby

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 […]

Sweet Mama Love

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 […]

Little Gray Cloud

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 […]

Sizing Me Up

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!

Cows in Pasture

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 […]

A Little Taste of Summer

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 […]

Frosty Red Head

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 […]
