There was a thief at the farm yesterday. This sweet mama was nursing her little brown calf while the little white calf decided he did not care where his milk came from. He decided to sneak a snack! Pretty cute!
I never ever tire of sitting and watching the calves nuzzle their moms and get their dinner. It is a tender moment each and every time. Really, I could spend an entire day watching the calves play, nap and eat. Earlier this week I stretched out on the chaise lounge and watched as a few […]
Last week this momma cow was babysitting another new mom’s baby and had a baby of her own right there while she was babysitting! Her baby is the one in foreground and it is about 30 minutes old. The other little baby was about 12 hours old. The second photo is of her baby the next […]
Love this girl against the hills and sky. Such a simple photo, yet I love her silhouette against the blue sky.
Cowboy and I are on a roll and I could not be happier. We have tackled spring projects early this year with gusto. I think we just may complete our projects before the spring/summer heat moves in. You cannot imagine how the heat and wind wear things out here at the farm. The elements are […]
On Saturday we had a new arrival. Ever so cute and precious as all newborns are. The mom was happily grazing and allowed me to check out baby and to sit and love it a bit. It always makes for such a blissful and happy day when we have a new healthy little calf. Baby […]
Got a few shots of the cows earlier in the week. They are all on the move and enjoying the days being a little cooler. Loved this photo! She had her baby hidden in the bushes, but did not like me being around. This little group was on move to water. I LOVE this girl. […]
It has been a busy spring with lots of new calves which we really enjoy having around the farm. Unless you are around cows you cannot imagine that they actually have personalities all their own. I love being around the cows and you quickly learn who is friendly and happy to see you. I love […]
Early Saturday morning these two little ladies were born. We love having new little heifers! These two are Charolais and so very pretty. Charolais have beautiful calves and these are no exception. We moved them into the corral so mama could get extra nutrition because sometimes having twins just takes it out of you! They […]
Here are a few “faces” from this week. Cowboy had camera in hand when driving around which is good because I have not had a camera in hand in over a month. Holding out for some pretty spring shots. Enjoy these cute faces today! Number 1 “Black Eye” is one of my favorites. You gotta […]
Here are a few shots of cows today. She is still the” Queen of Mean”, but she does have a nice hair style! She is a very protective mom and produces the most beautiful babies. Out of all the cows she is the one that has trust issue . She is always watching and sizing me up. […]
We have many cute new faces running around the farm. Here are just a few little ones.
My friend’s husband took this shot of these cows grazing and they were in a field right next to Oxford University! The day I went to tour the university it was raining, so I did not catch a glimpse of them which was sad because everyone on trip knew I was looking for any kind of […]
My poor heifer, number 34, managed to get a snake bite this week. You can see the swelling on her neck. Poor baby. Think she will be fine, but in the meantime probably feeling pretty lousy. It’s that time of year where no matter where you are you need to be careful while working, on […]
