Cows in the Hood

Our neighbors heifers are starting spring early.
They are having BABIES.
Today it's trying to rain. I hope it does. We have had a very dry January with lots of sunshine.
I took these photos a few days ago when the sun was out and it was a nice, warm afternoon.
These cows were loving all the winter sunshine.
They look like the proverbial "Happy California Cows" don't they?... with a touch of  "Don't get too close to my baby."
The littlest calf, born a few days ago, was lying on the warm dirt looking sooo cute.
I just wanted to hop over the fence and walk out there... you know... pet the little sweetheart and play with him a little, but then I realized that someone was watching me.
I don't think this was the little calf's mom but with that look on her face, I wasn't going to discuss it with her.
Maybe she was just having a bad day. We moms can remember days like this.. Maybe the "teenager" next to her was giving her some "lip". Who knows.
I thought it best
                  to move on
                               down the


  1. maybe when they are a little older you know...so cute...new life is so precious....

  2. Ha...Galena Cows are the original happy cows.... :-0!
    And yes, I so love going there and seeing the babies in the pastures.....but I have never gotten that close....better be careful
    animal babies..you have to love them all

  3. I love the expression on that cows face! Yes I would definitely say she was telling you to ~
    MOOOOOOOve along! Ha ha

  4. I love this post! Such sweet faces, except for the "angry mom" cow! :)

  5. Love the look on the cows faces. This was a great post. Take care and have a blessed day. Madeline

  6. Looks like they'll be busy for a while!! Such sweeties...love the labels!

  7. New baby mammals are beautiful. I love to see them on their wobbly legs, the foals are especially appealing.
    I miss that in the burbs!

  8. If we sat down for tea once afternoon on your beautiful property, I would share the story of our last summer as a family of four. A rented cabin on a longhorn ranch and the fancy pants step-dad who thought you could just walk up for a closer look at them horns...he he it was a fun ride out of there, just like a western in some way!
