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 […]

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 […]

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!

96 Takes the Cake

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 […]

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 […]

Three Feathers

Wanted you to see “Three Feathers” because I think he is so darn cute! Three Feathers is a bull who came to “visit” the girls in November. I was busy trying to get Christmas shopping done and managed only one photo of him on iPhone. Is this not darling of him already making friends with the girls? He […]

Farm Flood

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. […]

Love this girl against the hills and sky. Such a simple photo, yet I love her silhouette against the blue sky.

Donkey’s Grazing

Here are a few headshots of the little donkey’s. They have been enjoying grazing green grass in our corral. We use water sprinklers at night so the donkey’s and goats will have a little green grass. Our pastures have been very dry this summer and this is a nice treat for them. Patty and Lilly […]

Moo Monday

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 […]
