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.

Visiting the Cow Girls

25 Mar

Just before Sallie had her kids, I visited my cow girls, Maxine and Norma Jean.  Although, they are no longer mine.

I sold Norma Jean to my ex-brother-in-law.  Maxine is a bit different.  He gets her, but he can’t sell her.  That way, if she can ever retire without busting through a fence looking for a bull, she can come home.

Red Gelbvieh cow

They are both bred and should have calves next month.

Of course, I visited right before they were cleaning out the barn and putting down new bedding, so it looks dirty, but it’s hard to keep clean in the spring.  The cows are all looking forward to going out on pasture for the summer.

Sharing with Good Fences even though there’s not much of the fence visible.

Monday. Monday.

Time for The Good. The Random. The Fun.  We could all use more of all of those.

The Good.  Nothing like kisses from grandma to make you feel loved.

The Random.  A random shot of MJ.  I do love this guy.

The Fun.  Nothing like hanging with the older kids in pasture and playing with them.

They certainly do know how to have fun.

I’m also sharing with Mosaic Monday and Mandarin Orange Monday.
