Checking Cows

6 Aug

Well, I haven’t had to check cows in quite a while, but my nephew went on vacation before his dad gets back from vacation, so I get to check his last two cows waiting to have their calves.

They are pretty mellow, but they seem to think I should be bringing them treats.  Maybe next time. Here’s a peak in his barn.  They blow their hay instead of baling it.  There is no wasted space or hay with this method.

I also decided to take a couple of extra cow pictures while I was passing by my brother-in-law’s place.

These are his cows and calves relaxing in the shade.

It does make me miss my bovine.

    Your bovine was a very special one – it’s understandable!

      He really was special. I miss him every day. 🙂

    I am hoping they will treat you more civilly after you feed them a bit. They are pretty cows.

      They were pretty nice. They really just hoped for a treat. I only had face scrubbies for them.

    Is there a reason why you cannot have Connors again? The cows in these photographs are really left me under very well cared for.

      They do a great job of caring for their cattle. I could have cows, but it’s hard to breed them and deal with a bull and take care of such big animals on my own. It’s best I just visit. 🙂

      Thanks. My nephew’s wife has me taking photos to decorate their house. She wanted one of cows, so she has these to choose from.

    Hello, it is cool to cow-sit. I thought it was fun to dog sit my grand-dog. Pretty shots of the cows. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

      Dog sitting is probably more fun. I just have to go make sure these two aren’t having a calf. LOL They don’t look like they are close yet, so it’s pretty boring.

    Wonderful shots. W miss having cows, too.

    • Teresa August 7, 2016 at 6:20 pm #

      They are great animals!

    It’s obvious that you love cows! Those are pretty, but I think your goat-critters are really neat!

    • Teresa August 8, 2016 at 9:32 pm #

      Cows are great animals. It’s a lot easier for me to work with the goats though. Size matters when you have to do most things on your own.

    I’ve never heard of blowing hay into the barn. What do they use to do that?

    • Teresa August 11, 2016 at 7:51 pm #

      They chop it into smaller pieces and then have a special blower. It’s very efficient, but not many people do it that way anymore.
