I introduced Mabel a few posts ago! Oh my, she has stolen our hearts and we are loving her more each day. She has learned her name and comes to us sometimes, but only when she wants to socialize. She really is a special animal… Love this shot of Mabel on the hill. Oh Mabel, […]
Love this photo of the cattle on top of the hill with approaching storms in the background. Sometimes the views take my breath away and I cannot imagine not being able to enjoy the vast beauty. I want every single “picture” to leave a vivid footprint in my brain.
On a clear day you can see forever! I love driving around and finding the perfect landscape at the farm. Each day provides a different setting so I never get bored! Love this cow! These clouds were perfect. Wish I had packed a blanket so I could lay on ground and spend time watching the […]
Mama cows have been moved into the birthing pasture. Babies will be happening soon…
This is the bull that is in the pasture with the girls this month. His name is Friendly, but I call him Mr Friendly because he is having so much fun at our place! The “girls” are loving him and he is so busy trying to get their attention that he does not mind me […]
This sweet little bull calf was born on Saturday. He had to have some help being delivered so his mom came to barn to deliver. Watched her clean him up, get him on his feet and watched her learn the ropes as a first time mom. It took her a little bit to get the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
