Good morning! I have missed talking to all of you! I have been so sick with a cold that it has been a real chore to breathe let alone do anything else! I hope all of you out there are healthy and enjoying the spring weather.
The birds have been busy here making their nest. I sure am glad that I cleaned those nest boxes out! There is a bluebird family looking into the one that needs a little fixing, we hung a bag of feathers and fabric scraps out there. So I guess we will see if they use any of it.
So Rachel and her partner Rob had us all out to see their Highlanders and can I just say I have NEVER seen such a BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN farm in all my life! People were even saying that about the pen areas- NO COW PIES! Very nice arrangement in the barn, beautiful landscaping in the yard and wow nice pasture area for the cows as well as the bulls. They were beautiful animals! I just wanted to put one in my pocket on the way out that night! LOL So anyway lets get to some pictures!!
|My artsy kid takes after her mother. Got to take pictures of "cool and unusual things!"|
|Isn't she awesome????? She is pregnant right now.|
|One of the bulls checking things out. Nice barn huh??|
|Yes she is a girl...love them horns!|
|I just love the whole bangs thing! LOL|
|Rachel put hay out so they would come by the fence and eat so we could see them better.|
|She came around the corner of the fence and then realized we were NOT her mom! LOL She froze!! What a cutie!|
|Talking about the fencing.|
|Talking about how she sits on the cows, brushes them. They were very calm, friendly cows!|
|Just in case they need the shoots, however they have very healthy animals so they haven't needed to use them. Also the troughs weren't really needed as the animals are all grass fed.|
|Talking about being able to load them for butchering with just a little grain in a cup. She also can have the vet vaccinate while she is just brushing the animal! Cool huh?|
|This one has the cutest teddy bear face! Very expressive eyes!|
|The birthing pen. That way the babies are not born out in the pasture. Sometimes the mom will hide them out in the trees- doesn't make it easy for the humans! LOL|
All can say is that they did a great job of hosting! Their animals are wonderful! Thanks so much for having us all out there to your farm!
