Cows Aren’t Just Cows

Through the years cows come and go at our place and I try to not get emotionally attached knowing that someday they will be gone. This especially holds true with the babies. I try to live by the theory to “just enjoy them while they are here with us”… Of course many of the mama […]

Mr Friendly

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 […]

Newly Born

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 […]

Spring Calves

We have lots of new beautiful babies at the farm. This one is especially special. Her mama is sick and unable to feed her. She is now with a new mama who lost her calf. We are crossing fingers for a match made in heaven! Newborn cow babies are so very precious. I get goosebumps […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

New Best Friend

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 […]
