What a sight

Yesterday morning as I was driving down my road to go to work I saw something that made me wish I’d had my camera in the car. A doe and her twin fawns were standing in our hay field surrounded by turkeys and their poults. It was a very interesting sight. Today the deer were on our bank and the turkeys were in the pasture.

We’ve had Oreo for quite awhile. Depending on her mood, she’ll sometimes let us give her head a rub.

Friday Ark Centennial Edition is up over at The Modulator.

These 4 month old boys are doing what we call “bulling”. Even though they are young steers and not bulls, they practice being dominant by pushing each other with their heads. I think this one ended in a tie. 🙂

It’s everywhere in the pasture. Hubby brush hogs it down where he can, but can’t get to all of it. Fortunately it hasn’t hurt the cows so far. It can be nasty stuff!

Here’s Tess enjoying some of the hay that gets moved. And, yes, I really am that close.

Movin' Hay

When we need to hay the cows, we typically have to take the tractor through our back yard to get it into the pasture. We do have other ways to get it in, but the cows like to spend more time in the lower part of the field as the days grow shorter and cooler. This picture was taken last fall.

(You can see dog kennels in the picture but we don’t board dogs. Those kennels were already there when we bought the place. We keep 1 dog in them and use the rest for the wood for our wood stove.)
