I have now made my reputation clear as the carrot lady and ofttimes when I call and shake my carrot bag, these cuties come on the fly. Cows and steer running full blast, screeching to a stop at the fence, and standing with expectant faces.
This is mama cow. Her baby was born at the local county fair in July and, as much as I enjoy treating mama cow, I have cocked an eyebrow at her mothering skills. They seem a little remiss to me. But baby appears to be thriving, so, what do I know...
Big boy Blaze I particularly like treating. I'm sure he's meant for the freezer, which breaks my heart, The point is he's getting pretty large. I want to indulge him as much as I can while there's time.
This cutie knows he has horns and can bully his way to the carrots. And yet, he's on the carrot team.
Yes, the donkeys do object to "their" carrots being doled out to the interlopers. I try to even things out, but I'm not sure they'd agree.
I like cows....those BIG brown eyes just melt my heart :)ReplyDelete
I like cows too ... but I always feel a bit sorry for them and think they look a bit sad. Glad that you're treating them, especially the poor one that's destined for the freezer. I don't eat much meat at all, but it's enough to make you go "full vegetarian". Lived in rural Anglesey a few years ago and I could never get my head around how people would pamper the lambs, bonding with them and them send them off. Would never ever eat lamb still to this day!! P.S. Tell the donks there's enough to go around. Kind regards, Louise S, Cheshire.ReplyDelete
YES to vegetarianism. I'm slowly moving toward a vegan diet but may never be 100%. Totally agree about the lambs AND veal AND lobsters. The whole darn thing.Delete
OK, better not crank up my soap box...
That is so cute how you've spoiled the cows. I've just read your comments and totally agree. I will not eat lamb and I refuse to buy dog food with lamb. And like you, the same, with the whole darn thing.ReplyDelete
Thats why we're blogger friends :)Delete
Just read your comment Janet (and Henny Penny's). I think that we are very alike with our feelings towards animals in general. It's lovely to converse with someone who's on your wave length. I really enjoy your blog posts, they make my day. Have a great weekend. Kind regards, Louise S, Cheshire UK.ReplyDelete
I always look forward to your comments. And if I don't see one, say "Hey! Where's Louise?!"Delete
