Cow Update!

Another long day at the farm. That is me on the left trying to fix the gator with help from the cows.


The second picture is the cows on the hayfield. They wintered there for three months and now the wheat and fescue is starting to grow faster than they can eat it.


Thought we would go back and look at some of the cows and how they have grown over the winter. This is Grace one of Vicki’s favorites. She is only four months old. but she has really grown.

This was one of the smallest calves we had. She is not named, but she has really grown.

This is a calf we call Smokey, because of her color. She is almost a big as her mother.

And finally, a picture of Vivian the day she was born, and a picture last week. She’s going to be a great cow.

Why Name a Cow Blue?

We now have 25 cows, 19 calves, one bull , and one donkey. This calf we call Blue. She looks like a blue tick hound. Big floppy ears and runs around like a a dog on a trail of a deer. The bottom picture is me putting out feed one Wednesday night. If you double click on the photo all you see are the ears on ole Blue. We hope to keep Blue for many years, she will hopefully be a great mother in a couple of years.


Wooly Bully and I have not been getting along. Two weeks ago Wooly Bully flipped me head over heals over a feeder on my back. I felt like I was in a car wreck. The first picture is of Wooly Bully yelling at me to get out of his pasture. Two stubborn males trying to get their way. This time Wooly Bully gives way. Something tells me I had better watch my back.

I want to share with you what a great God we serve. Anyone who has doubts about God needs to come to the farm. There is no way the following pictures could happen without a gracious and merciful God. This calf was born while we were at lunch. The first two pictures are within the first two hours of birth. The third picture is in the second hour. The fourth picture is in the third hour as they are running to join the herd. Thank you Lord Jesus for all you do.




I hope you enjoy the farm pictures. Sorry they are not very frequent. You are welcome to come and visit anytime. It is a lot of work, but it is a lot of fun. It also brings us closer to God.
