Close-Ups

We hung out with the herd for a while last night. A few of them came trotting right up to me when I got out the camera.


The calf is healthy and growing bigger everyday.


In my opinion, this is the best-looking bull we have right now. His hair is long and silky, and makes him look so rugged when the wind blows. 


Last night was one of my favorite parts about farming. We weren't busy doing chores, and the herd seemed content to have us around. It's fun to hang out with the animals and just enjoy our land.

    The 4-H girl in me wants to take a grooming brush to those shaggy beasts!

    1. They need it! But with the exception of a couple, they won't let you touch them. In the end that's probably a good thing.

  4. I know they are Highland cattle, Scottish Highlands,not Higland Avenue cattle, but they certainly look like Viking cattle with the horns. I wonder what their genetic history would show. Those wicked Norwegians and Danes might have brought them from the land of lutfisk long ago. If they were really Scottish cattle wouldn't they be ultra smart and be able to count and stuff?

    1. Bruce- I'm not sure about their genetics. Some of these particular cattle came from Tyler County, WV. And, as for brain power, I think they use most of it for escaping from the fence!
