An Early Spring


The cows were down to their last round bale.
It was set before their feasting eyes (and mouths) on Saturday.
They promptly started demolishing it.
While their attentions were distracted, I checked out their girly unders.
Tried to figure out what was going on back there.
I couldn’t really tell.
And they’re not talking.
But the four girls are due sometime soon.
I’ve had several questions about Beau the bull– He is young. A yearling bull. He will get bigger. He’s a full-sized Hereford. He will be big enough to do the job. He sniffs the girls every day, just checking. They’re not in heat because they’re bred, but he is ever optimistic, so he checks. Daily. He’s feeling his spring fever! Meanwhile, with round bales running out, we had another delivery yesterday.
The cows were very excited!
They came right over to check it out. Hopefully this will get us through. Spring is here, early. And welcome. Look how green it is!
Our order of meat chicks should be arriving this week. Grass is growing. The chickens are delivering two dozen eggs a day, and the ducks are laying, too. It’s time for flowers and vegetables and herbs to go in the ground. Speaking of gardens….
Initial dirt work for a big new garden started here this weekend. I’m ready for a big garden! I need seeds….this week. I’m ready for seeds and calves and more goat babies.

It’s spring. Early!!! (We really needed that this year!)

    Is that your bike with the training wheels? lol Do you still have your horses?

    Well, the ladies are eating for two so I’m not surprised they are demolishing the hay. Early Spring….I hope we get that here too. I am so ready for the nicer weather.

    I love how exciting spring is with the anticipation of gardens and babies. 🙂 I can’t wait till your girls start pushing out those sweet calves!

    Things are popping up here too, but so much rain, I can barley walk in the grass, we are to have a “wintery mix” this week end, what ever that might mean. I am so ready for drier weather.

    Bike? Any details to share? Inquiring minds want to know, and I’m just nosy, lol.

      cabynfever–yes, the horses are still here, though I am planning to re-home them (through the Heart of Phoenix horse rescue, where I got them) due to the pasture pressure with more cows!

      The bike belongs to Rodney’s little grandson!
