Mrs. 35 is really a character. She exudes lots of cow personality. Sometimes she seems to need her space from the other girls so she hides. Last week I could not find her and spent an hour looking for her. She finally popped her head out of her hiding place in the trees to let […]
There is simply nothing better than mama’s and babies…
Lazy Hazy Days of Summer… This farm momma was very lazy…
After a few years of dry tanks and continued drought we had a surprise this weekend. Rain was in the forecast and we were really hopeful that we would receive a little moisture. We always feel like we are in the “Farm Bermuda Triangle” where everyone around us gets a shower, but we do not. […]
Don’t you love this happy little guy? His name is Fisher and he is such a sweet goat. Love this smile!
One of my friends recently traveled to Austria and Germany. Of course I asked her to take photos if she bumped into any cows! She sent me lots of cute photos, but these German cows are the two cutest girls I have ever seen. It appears they were very good natured and happy to be photographed. This […]
I love spring at the farm. We are always super busy with all our spring projects. Cleaning barns, shredding pastures, planting, watering and vaccinations for all the cows, donkey’s and goats. Love all the little calves being born. The anticipation of wildflower season nearly drives me crazy! Cleaning the grill to cook-out. Waiting for that special […]
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.
Our January has been dark, gloomy and cold. That means I go into hibernation and for the most-part and begin my ritual of spring cleaning inside the house and poor cowboy takes care of everything outside in the cold! With the cold weather comes extra responsibility such as mucking the donkey and goat barns, spreading fresh hay […]
I am a bad “mama” as I do not think I ever officially introduced our new goats we purchased this last summer. Mr. Brown and Fisher were show goats and we purchased them from the kids who showed them at their local stock show. They grew up together and are the best of friends. They just […]
