Bluebell is a full-size Jersey milk cow. She was named after the ice cream and living in Texas it only made sense to name her that.
Our daughter Jeanelle was ready to have a milk cow she wants to learn to make butter, cream, ice cream, and cheese and much more. Bluebell will be having a baby in October.
The first picture was really good timing not that I wanted to see a cow put their tongue up their nose lol.
I love cows big or small they all seem to photograph quite well. Bluebells eyes are just amazing.
The little farm has added Cecil a miniature registered Hereford Bull.
Talk about cute he is short and stocky and he is like a 600# dog lol.
I was able to get a few good pictures of him and in the background is Darla on the left and Oreo on the right, they are Belted Galloways.
Cadilac has grown a lot since our daughter and her husband bought her. She losing her baby face.
She will be 1 – year old next month. She seems so small standing next to Scamper the other Minature Hereford but Scamper is almost 2.
I have a soft spot in my heart for cows they are my favorite farm animal. I love to talk to the cows, pet them and feed them clover.
Daisy likes to charge the cows next door to us when they are the fence then she kisses them on their noses lol. They just stand there they are not scared of her.
On Wednesday I was over at the little farm and decided to try and get a few pictures. That was when Cadilac gave me this look. She was thinking ” I was just chewing my cud and minding my own business and here you come to take more pictures. ”
Have a great Memorial weekend everyone do a few projects and a lot of relaxing.
Today I took out the camera it has been awhile.
I headed for the heifers next door and caught these cuties just in time.
The tongue shot was just good timing she had been eating molasses.
These cows lay on the edge of the round bale so this is why they have hay all over them. They do not seem to mind at all even if it is picture time.
Cows have many expressions and I love trying to capture their true personalities.
Some recently bought calves from an auction moved from across the street from us to next door.
See those ear tags with numbers those are from an auction. Many of these numbers are in a row so I think that would mean from the same person herd of cows.
I love having cows next door it has been a long time since this has happened.
Daisy is not quite sure yesterday she ran at the fence with her ball in her mouth thinking she could scare them. They stood their ground and she went on her merry way lol.
These girls are quite friendly they come to the fence to talk to me and some let me pet them. They seem to like to take pictures.
Last weekend our daughter, her husband, and children went to pick up a registered miniature Hereford. Meet Scamper she is 19 months old.
She is halter broke, very friendly and has been getting to know her new surroundings. She and the goats seem to be okay with each other. Andrew has actually walked her a few times this is how gentle she is.
As a miniature, she will not get any taller just stockier. She will top out with a weight at 650# – 850#s.
I am looking forward to more photo sessions with Scamper.
