Here is what it looks like in the rain and mud.
Only took the herd 2 days to decimate this 7 acre steep rocky slope.
Lots of wild apple trees in this steep field and a crystal blue mountain stream.
They were waiting to be moved to a new field this morning.
Unsinkable Susan demanded her Nabisco Graham Crackers.
I just can not believe this cow survived the winter.
The calf nursery.
They nap while their moms graze.
Not a single calf has gone under the electric fence in this steep field.
After Wanda's calving escape, a heavy duty charger was added to the fencing.
It works. Especially when wet!
I zapped the crap out of myself, twice, when I tripped and fell onto the wire this morning. The fillings in my teeth are STILL throbbing!
The itty bitty trickling stream is really making waves as it comes down the field.
I had no sooner finished telling someone that my cows do not like to eat woody brush, when I saw Google doing the " apple blossom 2 step."
Branches and all.
She is part giraffe. Part Goat.
She trimmed them good!
The HillBilly Blossom Boys.
They ate the branches and blossoms that fell to the ground.
Blossoms and Milk make calves grow.
Wanda could feed an entire village on that full udder.
She needs 3 more calves on her.
All I can think of is that special Simmental cheese that can be made from Simmental milk.
I want me some.
The cutest Apple Blossom Gal.
Wet and nameless. Ms. "W"
She will be a week old tomorrow and already she is wide, thick, deep and long.
I hope she will be a good watermelon and squash eater this fall.......
