Finally! A day without rushing, clouds and rain. A day to walk around the barnyards with you. My in-laws bought two feeder calves to put in with our little George. Taking pics of black calves in the dark results in their eyes reflecting the flash like little extraterrestrial orbs.
A little like trying to photograph sheep in a blizzard, I suppose.
Yesterday, I caught them posing for you, while the sun was shining.
Cute, but not cute-as-George. George even photographs well in the dark:
Jethro is also visiting. Let’s hope for mid-to-late-May kids!
He took a bow so you could admire his horns, too:
Of course, Happy is never far from the action. Notice the old barn in the background? It has really taken a beating this winter. Watching it fall, board by board, is so sad. I would love to see a picture of it in its glory days!
Thought for the day: the barn isn’t falling apart all at once. The de-construction is a result of neglect and absence of maintenance. Lots to learn from that observation.
Happy New Year to you and yours! Always love seeing pics of your barnyard critters.
It IS sad to see any structure go to ruin. Although they make for interesting photos, it’s still a sad thing to see.
Happy New Year, Dianna! Old barns are so photogenic … if only I were as I aged! 😉
Great photo of “Steaks & Roast” ~ brought a smile to my face this morning…
I have to keep their role in mind! Glad you smiled.
Jethro is a handsome fellow! I agree with the barn observation, everything requires maintenance…..and in my case “support”.😝
Ah, yes, support… Spanx for barns??
Or at least a good underwire, or strap?
I’m glad I don’t have horns on my head. Would make it hard to comb my hair.
Jethro doesn’t worry about grooming! He smells like, well, a goat!
Yes – many of these old barns could have been saved – so sad. And your calves! Well done. Are they Angus, I would love to have a couple too but they are so hard to find now! And my last calf episode means that i will only ever buy from someone I know. Today was my first quiet day to and I loved it! Have a great week. c
The calves, Angus-cross, are healthy and robust; bought from a good-farmer-neighbor. Quiet days are meant to be savored. Glad you loved yours, too.
Great pics, that Jethro sure is a handsome lad!
Thank you, Julie. Jethro loves attention, too.
Great pics! Love the “Steaks and Roast” names. We had to name ours to help us remember their destiny. They were appropriately names “Chuck Roast” and Sir Loin”! Jethro is quite handsome. Should make for an exciting Spring!
I love your names! Last spring, Jethro sired a very large single kid and two easy-kidding twins. I’ll take easy twins over having to pull a large one. Thanks for stopping by.
Been there, done that on pulling goats (and calves)! I’m with you on the easy twins! 🙂
Jethro is a handsome fellow. Hope to see some adorable little ones.
