Castle Rock Haiku

Sentinel towers,
Battlements rise, keeping watch
Over cows and calves.

Heifer Haiku

I had the good sense
To calve on a sunny day
Ahead of the snow

Spring baby

Baby on the ground.
Angus with black baldie calf,
Mama keeping watch.

Little Boy Blue in Nebraska

or…the heifer’s in the corn stalks

A Little Boy Blue come blow your horn,
The sheep’s in the meadow the cow’s in the corn.
But where’s the boy who looks after the sheep?
He’s under a haystack fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I – for if I do, he’s sure to cry

Cows on the Laramie Plains

 

 

Many of us may not think of Laramie as the ideal wintering grounds, but for our cows, it is…Laradise!

Through a lens, iPhonely

Winter sheep with southerly sun

Pat’s birthday present was a new set of lenses for his iPhone. Here’s some photos he took at Powder Wash trying out the new lenses. Watch this space for future pics.

If the blackface and some of the whiteface ewes look roundish in these photos, that’s because they will start lambing in a month or so. You can also see how little snow there is. The winter continues to be warm and dry, and we continuously check the weather report for promises of snow. My Dad always said that a wet spring beats a hard winter, so we can hope!

Which one of these is not like the others? (Hint–look at the color of the ears.)
