Farm Friend Friday...

at the Verde Farm visit other farms or link for others to visit your place. Lots of farming to enjoy!
The grass is greening up around here.
 The stock is very happy and enjoying the spring's tender grass.
The tulips that survived the deer feasting are making a stunning show for us.
Fruit trees are beginning to bloom,
still with a chance of frost, we are crossing our fingers.
Hubby checks out his Gelbvieh herd.
Tagging babies sure is easier when they hit the ground.
Last year we didn't get to it 'til they were three months old!
We will NOT make that mistake again.
We are both too old to cowboy!

Castration is a whole lot easier too as they hit the ground. That is, if ya'll can outrun the wild~eyed mad mama cow!!! Heeehehehe!!!

Sure wish it would warm up here so I could see some flowers, too.

I do so love pictures of the herd. They're so beautiful.

You've really got spring going!!! Lovely herd too.

I can't imagine tagging calves when they're 3 months...that is nightmarish!...:)JP

Can definitely relate to the tagging calves as soon as they hit the ground,however Hubbie and I are so slow now we need someone to distract the mama !!!
Have a blessed weekend

The photos are great, especially the flowers and the calves with their "pierced earrings"

Wonderful post, Gail! Nothing is blooming here, yet and I rather like it that way....'cause I really want a good harvest of peaches and apples. We are getting some little sprigs of grass poking up. Have no idea how that's possible, though, since we've not had a lick of rain since last August.

Are the Gelbvieh cattle gentle? Are the Mamas more willing to let you handle their babies after birth?
Imagining you and your family trying to wrestle big calves, makes me giggle a little. Sounds like y'all got some wisdom from experience. hehe!
