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.

Sunrise, fog and cow silhouettes

Some mornings I look outside and see something that I need to take a picture of.

This morning as the sun was rising it was foggy and I could not help but notice the cow silhouettes in the fog. You can even see the baby.

What a way to start a day!

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.

 

Cow breath

I caught these two cows smelling each other’s breath. Actually, I think the one on the left was curious about what the one on the right was eating.

Sometimes it’s about capturing those moments you never see happen and using your imagination to decide what they were doing.

Cows have this really cute personality about them that some people never notice.

Cow Watcher

Mr. Bird the cat goes outside every morning and comes in every evening.

The only time that changes is when it is not a perfect weather day.

He does not like windy days, rainy days or days that are to hot or to cold. On those days he goes out and in a few times.

On this particular day I was taking pictures of the cows and he follows me around like a dog when I am taking pictures.

He spotted the big dogs ( cows ) across the street so he went into cow watching mode. They are normally in the back of the pasture not the front so naturally this got his attention.

I find the best pictures of animals are when they are just doing their thing.

Glamour Cow

I know I have said this 100 times or more but I love cows they have the best expressions.

They all have different personalities but this one likes to get her picture taken she kept looking at me and the camera.

I guess it goes to show you there are some glamour cows out there.

There are a lot of people who post ugly selfies on facebook that could learn a few lessons from this cow.

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.
