Thought I'd send along a picture of one of my cows waiting to be fed.. This was taken a couple of weeks ago after a new light morning snow.

Robert, This is one of my simmentals.. I think she might have a little Brahmer in her.. The guy I bought her from wants to buy her back if I ever sell her. His wife wanted him to sell a few of his cows since they were having a new baby and he was spending way too much time outside.

Awwww, nothing sweeter than a cow's face to a city gal! I LOVE this forum, you would be surprised how much I "lurk" on here. Guess it's my NC hillbilly genes! LOL

I see the possibility of the Brahma in her.
Wish my cattle were in as good condition as those seem to be.

They are so sweet. I wish I could reach out and pet them. I love their smell too. The sweet smell not the stinky ones they sometime have.

The red and white one looking over the fence lost her calf before it was born last year. It was trying to be born tail first. Had to have the Vet out to help.. My point being she didn't have a calf on her all year.. So she is bound to look fat and sassy. The big white one behind her didn't get bred last year.. I made the horrible mistake of not having the bull semen tested. With that and what I hope is top rations they are in good condition.

sagewoodfarm. You might be able to pet the big white one.. I could do almost anything with her. She was a bottle calf. But cattle are funny. They know their stockman ( or woman in my case ). When someone different hangs around they act a little skiddish.

The red and white one is always the first in line to be fed.. I can touch her nose.. and she will eat out of my hand, but you probably couldn't hug her
