Heifers at the fence

These heifers next door to our house seem to think that when I am outside they will get a treat sometimes they do but sometimes I am just taking pictures.

The good thing is, either way, they pose for me. If they are across the pasture they come running when they see me.

Country life is great but I love cows.

Ready for Retirement

My husband will be retiring at the end of March.

He saved vacation to make his last 5 weeks left easy. He is taking off every Monday and Friday until the end of March he wanted to experience 3 day work weeks lol.

Last week was his first easy week and he really enjoyed it. We did accomplish a lot last weekend.

Once he is retired we get to decide what we are doing and if we are going to move and find our next forever home. I have to call this home our forever home #1 since we have lived here for 41 years.

We would like a place with 20 – 30 acres so I can have some goats and some cows. If we can find property next to a national forest we would not have to worry about a subdivision on top of us. I prefer a house to be there already with some minor updates needed.

The whole idea of being surrounded by nature is quite exciting. I could take plenty of pictures & feed the wildlife.

This all sounds so relaxing and if there’s water its all the better.

Life is pretty exciting when you are entering this stage and the only thing you are responsible for other than yourselves is the dogs, cats, and birds.

 

 

 

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.

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.

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.
