Cows

The neighbors (who run a cattle ranch) let their cows out in the pasture near our house yesterday.  To my delight, I noticed there were some newborn calves in the bunch!  Of course, I took a couple pictures.
I got super close to this little guy.
My favorite shot.

Bill is rather indifferent to the cows, lol.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Really cool photo series.

    How come there are babies at this time of year? Is that normal for cows?

    1. Thanks Lizzi - and that is a good question! I think they can calve year-round, with the farmers pretty much determining when that is by the times the allow the bulls to run with the herd. But then, I am no cow rancher so that might be totally off lol!

    2. Okay! Cool! I guess the farmers can rig it to happen whenever they're ready. I just always equated baby animals with springtime. But I guess that'd be a LOT of work for the farmer if they all popped at once.

  2. Beautiful shots! I enjoyed them! You had some wall hangers in your camping group of shots, too! I don't know if you guys get on backyardchickens.com or not, but they are having a 2014 calendar picture contest. You can enter 2 pics. I entered two, but won't get any where with them...lol.

    I can't believe I made a blog list...lol. Thank you very much!!!

  4. Calves are so darn cute! And cows are pretty good looking, too, as long as they are on the other side of that fence. :)
