This and That

30 Oct

Friday evening, I came out of the milk room and wondered why it sounded like I had cows in my yard.  Well, they were close.  Sky was crazy excited. Some days I think he needs medicated for his ADHD.

Can you tell which goat is older?  It’s not the taller one.  Pluto is sixteen months old.  Dahlia is almost five months old.  Pluto is such a short guy!

Maggie was tugging on my coat to see if I brought her any peanuts.  She does like her peanuts!

It’s not often I get a four generation picture.  This is Stormy, Haley, Zinnia, and Joy.  This is why I want to keep Joy.  She’s a beautiful girl, and she would be my fourth generation of milking girls.

Sky was lounging in the house.  He just had his toenails trimmed that morning, and I swear this boy and his bad manners embarrasses me.  He is just so stinking ADHD.

Dolly and Pluto snuggled in the barn early one morning.

I love the look of the pasture in fall.  Aurora and Odie only add to its beauty.

Finally, we have Leo.  I wish he didn’t have such allergy eyes.  I need to see if I can get him in for an allergy shot.

He’s such a lover boy.

A Walk in Pasture

2 Dec

Now that the cows have gone and the goats are shut on the front pasture, there’s not much to look at out in the Back Forty.  Although, I still think it’s beautiful.

The neighbor has cows on the corn field behind us.

I did see this.  I’m not sure what kind of den it is.  I’m okay with fox.  I will have a fit if it’s coyote.  I don’t know how to tell the difference.

There were a ton of doves that took off when I got close.

Not much out there right now.

Fall Cattle Pasture

16 Oct

Our cool weather this past week has really made it look like fall.

The cows are enjoying the cool weather.

Although, I think it might be time to wean some big rump roasts.

For comparison, this is the calf that was born on the farm in July.

They are all looking good.
