a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

New Ground Pasture

This land was cleared and planted at least fifty years ago.  It was referred to as the new ground and I guess it always will be.  The cattle don't care what it's called.  This was Dad's standard summer pasture and the spring valley was winter grazing along with hay and feed.

Today we counted cattle.
The grass is green.
This time last year it was drought brown.
Collateral is not sure he likes the attention. 
A bad picture of my favorite...Yellow Cow
If I didn't know better I would think there's a buffalo
 in this guy's wood pile.
Grass is good. This cow is not skinny.  It is the breed.
Bored with us and disappointed that we brought no treats
they move on.

Glad you've had plenty of rain this year.
They say don't eat the yellow snow - does that apply to cows as well?

You have beautiful cattle. My Dad raised Charolais when he moved to Oklahoma. I thought they were pretty but I like yours best. I really like your bull, he is magnificent.

I am so happy to see all that green and your well fed cows. Collateral sure looks healthy, wealthy and wise and i to think there is a buffalo somewhere in the ancestors..do you milk any of your cows?

I was raised on a dairy farm so this is a sight I saw every day. Well not in the winter, but during the nice weather.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Now those are some mighty fine looking cows. I love the one you mentioned may have some buffalo in him. The white circles of hair around his eyes are wonderful, makes him stand out over the others.

Wonderful photos, Gail.
I can see the buffalo, too.

Any idea what makes your pasture so green? What sort of grass it is?

Have a great day, Gail! :-)
