Life on the farm today and some new babies

Around noon we left to go look at some cows we might buy from our friends. We walked in, they were eating lunch and was invited to join which we did. Good friends and food, how much better can it get. After that we went to look at the cows and help them doctor a sick cow. That was quite the experience, I stayed in the truck so I wouldn't scare the cows since they don't know me. Yes that's right they don't like people they don't know. After a while I heard a lot of noise and here came their bull and he wasn't very happy. I guess he didn't like it that they had one of his girlfriends in the pen and he couldn't get to her. He started pawing the ground and bawling. He was hot and his tongue was hanging out. He started toward the truck where I was setting and both windows were down so I quickly rolled them up. He walked past the driver side and looked straight at me and then he went around to the bed of the truck and stuck his nose in there. I will admit I was getting a little nervous. I was hoping he didn't try to turn the truck over. The last thing I want it a two thousand pound bull mad and me in the way. After that we went to our farm where we are starting to have babies and here are some pictures I took there.

  1. Gotta watch out for those bulls. J was chased out of the pasture by a bull, once and only once in almost 60 years on the farm.

    We lived in the back pasture. To arrive at our house, we drove a narrow rough lane. One bull (different from the pasture chaser), always tried to block the road. He would put his head down and dare cars to pass.

    Loved seeing the Spring calves. Miss those little cuties.

  2. I'm glad you liked the pictures Pat. I will keep them coming and yes that bull was making me a little nervous. Our bulls are so tame they eat out of our hands but still you can never really trust them. They can hurt you not meaning too because they are so big.

  3. Calves are so cute! I really like the third picture from the bottom where it looks like it is romping around in the trees.

  4. Great photos of the cows and calves. Good thing the bull couldn't climb onto the truck bed!

  5. Calves are so cute! OK, I have to ask. Are these milking cows or eating cows? My daughter wants a cow. But I think we have enough animals. I'm busy enough already.

  7. Hello! Thanks so much for finding my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. Baylee's paw is much better these days, but she still has a weakness in her pad that bears watching. She wants me to let you know she is touched by your concern and promises to be careful in the future! We are leaving Alabama for the beaches of North Carolina soon so she will have all new adventures - learning about sands and waves and seashells and crabs! I'm thinking about purchasing some of those special boots for active dogs to protect her feet. We'll see how it goes! I'm going to add you to my blog roll so I can keep up with your blog. Thanks so much for finding me!

  12. Thank you for following my blog, I'm now following you as well. Your pictures brought up fond memories of our friend and his cows. They were like his children.

  13. Thank you for visiting my blog and your sweet comment. You wouldn't believe how much we have in common. First of all we also have a farm in S GA, my son and DH are turkey hunters and my son hunts with his recurve bow with a great deal of success. They both have traveled to many parts of the US to turkey hunt. They are also deer hunters. My daughter is married to a REAL cowboy (he actually has a degree in business and finance), his family raises cattle and he runs the family dairy but at certain times of the year all family members saddle up and do what needs to be done on the family ranch. I must tell my DD about your blog and btw, love the pics of the cows with their calves. I am your newest follower.
