Winter Neighbors

10 Nov

Now that the fields have been harvested, there are cows surrounding my back forty.


The llamas seem to think they are interesting looking.

Makes me miss my cows.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are listed at the top of my sidebar.

Friday’s Hunt v2.8

19 Aug

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with I, Week’s Favorite, and pink.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with H:  My nephew mowed the waterways and back hills last week to make hay.  In front is the bottom that was mowed in June.  The back left was just mowed, and the right hasn’t been mowed at all this year.


It unfortunately got rained on, but it isn’t horrible hay.  Hopefully, they get it baled today before it rains, or it will be ruined.


Single and Week’s Favorite:  I have a couple of singe shots, and I don’t know which is my favorite.  I am taking farm photos for my niece, and I got a single bee on the flower.  I also found a single calf out there.



You’ll notice he doesn’t have a tag.  My brother-in-law couldn’t find him this morning to tag and band him.  They do a good job of hiding sometimes.

Now it’s your turn.

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.
