Did it again....

Over the weekend I did not get any braiding pictures again.  Big surprise? Yeah, not hardly.  We were busy going to look at and then going back to pick up new additions to the herd.

I bring you Buzz

and Betsy

Betsy has brands on both hips. Big ugly suckers and if she will let me catch her, I am going to slather them up with ointment. Instead she slips out under the bottom rail and goes for a sightseeing jog around the property and gets the horses all stirred up. The other night she slipped into the stall with Kat.  He looked at her kind of surprised to see something smaller than he is. 

Betsy is a Hereford cross and Buzz is a good guess, but looks like he could be a Jersey. He is still a bull for now and needs to have his horns dealt with, but he is friendly and loves being scratched and schmoozed... His eye was all watery for the second picture, but had cleared up by that afternoon. 

The girls love the cows. Anything with spots, including the neighbors horses, are called Holly Moo. That's how it is in their world. Maybe now that we have a couple of brown cows it will change? Who knows.


  1. Get them going on some rolled oats or as I said "frosted flakes " and Betsy will come around in no time!
    You are getting quite the herd there!
