Longhorn country

Longhorns are quite unique looking.

They are a medium-sized cow that is not real beefy looking but those horns and the speckles will let you know it’s them.

Country living in Texas would not be the same without the longhorns.

Eye on you

This heifer’s eyes allow you to see her personality.

When she was put in the pasture beside us she was very standoffish, shy, and kept to herself.  She did not even stand with the other heifers.

A few months later I gained her trust and now she is the first one to the fence to greet me.

A heifer’s eyes show you deep into their soul.

When you win her trust that is when you can form a beautiful friendship.

Calf time

This baby calf is right next door and he was about 3 days old in this picture last Saturday.

Most of the new calves next door to us come up to me on my first attempt to call them to the fence. Gotta love it.

I was able to grab a few pictures and this one has the cutest eyes and a crazy hyper personality. He takes off running and kicking like he is a few months old.

Country Life at its best!

Almost 2 months old

This premature calf is almost two months old now.

I think she has grown faster than a regular calf. Her solid black fur is getting some reddish fur coming in around her shoulders and her head.

She has these large eyes that are shaped so pretty. I think she will end up being a beautiful cow.

 

Tiny calf and its mom

This calf I believe was born the day before yesterday.

It is a tiny calf so more than likely it was premature but it seems to be getting around good and being quite active.

All together now

This is our daughter Jeanelle’s herd of cows at their family farm.

The Miniature Herefords are on the left side. The Jersey milk cow and calf in the middle, the Belted Galloways on the right.

Left to right is Cecil the bull, Penny the youngest heifer, Scamper who is Pennys mom, Cadilac, Blue Bell, Sirloin son of Blue Bell, Oreo and Darla.

I love cows they have such cute personalities this group is very friendly and very photogenic.

The little calf

This is one of the two calves next door to us

They have grown so much in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

I was able to get out and slosh through the muddy pasture in my rubber boots and get a few good pictures.

The other calf was not interested in getting his picture taken this one seemed quite curious.

These two pics are the same but they are edited differently as well as cropped differently.

I love the new crops like the first one.

One of the joys of living in the country is getting to enjoy the cows.
