Beautiful beast! I absolutely adore cows but as I get older I am more nervous about having animals much larger than myself! But I so enjoy the view of my neighbors’ yards!

Just couldn’t let another week go by without introducing the dog that saved my life. I was asleep in the recliner when she barked wildly and thumped against me with her snout to wake me. The house was mostly engulfed in flames as we made our way out. In 15 minutes there was no more house and the fire dept. was actively saving my neighbors homes.
Lady, a rescue Plott Hound, literally rescued me and guided me through the smoke to the nearest (only) exit not in flames. 7 years older now but still the faithful pup at heart.
I know that technically she is not part of the barnyard herd…but since that day, July 6th, 2015, she truly became part of MY herd.

re-looking at your Brahman bull I can’t help but reiterate that there is just something positively majestic about the breed! The grand stance of the animal is the only distraction from it’s gentle nature and curious eye movements that seem to draw you into their thoughts. It is certainly no mystery why this breed has the reputation for possessing ’holy’ attributes and the gentle sprits of ancestors probing eternity to find Nirvana. (Yep…it’s confirmed…they like Seattle grunge music best!). Absolutely lovely animal.

Nothing says love like…
I love to see animals eat flowers. I’m not sure what it does for them but I notice that in the Spring time on our farm when all the flowers are blooming and the crops are starting to poke through the soil it is always a race between our bees and our sheep to see who get to the flowers first! This year we are planting a few acres of just flowers with some legumes for protein to please everyone! You have a lovely goat!
