The Kosmo Kid tags and identifies a calf.

Peach and I soaked up a bit of culture on a Saturday afternoon. We rather enjoyed the experience.

Image
A calf graft gone wrong. If you will notice, these panels are extra tall and should be jump proof by any cow. This one went up high enough to catch a front leg between panels. A bovine characteristic is that they don't last long in an upside-down position.

Pretty morning

Setting up to brand

Say "cheese." "Cheese."

About ready to go. I'd better get to work.

Image
Foggy morning

Image
A few fog-covered trees do not make a forest.

Image
And a pond

Image
Does not a lake make.

Egret

Leaving with no regret

Cows having their own Easter sunrise service

Calves hunting each other's colored ear tags instead of Easter eggs

Pretty clouds

One more shot

The end of another day

Great set of pictures, it's nice to see the world outside my barnyard.

Do those Egrets eat flies off the cattle's backs or is that a different brand of Egret?

Looks to be "Cattle Egret" to me..

Never will forget the time I saw one pick up a small green snake and attempt to eat it...... The snake wrapped himself around the Egrets neck and wouldn't let go. I stopped the tractor and watched the action. It was a serious struggle for a while. The snake got away.
