Big Blue Skies

With pairs out to grass the Rancher and I almost feel like we are on vacation.  We still have  projects to work on and daily tasks, but nothing too major until we start getting ready to hay.

Helping Cousin T move bulls was full of sound.  These boys like to vocalize to remind each other that the hierarchy has not changed just because they are going to a different pasture.

I saw this robin looking for food.  With the rain we got he should be able to find some worms.

There are lots of texture differences in this picture.  Big puffy clouds, the steel windmill, wood, rocks and grass.

For my anything picture I have another calf for your enjoyment.

A vacation is time dedicated to taking it easy, going on a trip or doing an activity that is not part of our everyday lives.  My idea of vacation has changed as I have aged and experienced life.  Vacation means different things to different people.  I think attending livestock shows sounds like fun; my husband would rather try his luck on the lake.  We both enjoy trying new or different food options.  Doing things outside of our daily routine adds texture to our lives.  Going with the flow and up for anything is not one of my strong points.  I am a proceed with caution person that needs time to think things through.  Lucky for me, I have a husband that is mostly patient when my gut reaction is no.  His love for having fun rubs off on me … a little … sometimes.

Last night we had a server thunder storm go over us.  In addition to rain we got a lot of wind and hail.  It’s daylight, J and I are headed out to look at the damage.

    Beautiful shots of your cattle and I love your texture shot.

  3. I hope you did not have too much damage to anything! I adore that last shot of the tongue out on the calf!

      Thank you TT. Glad you enjoy the calf shot, they are fun to capture. Hail damage is bad and could have been a lot worse.

  4. It’s always an adventure when I visit your blog…!! Sure hope that you had only minimal damage if any. Cute calf with those big eyes and tongue hanging out!!

    Hopefully you did not have too much damage. The summer months will be the severe storms….we’ve been under a lot of cloud cover and just gray and rainy days, hoping that the sun will shine through some time soon once again!

    What a great series! Love the windmill and calves are always fun to see.

  8. Very nice set. I didn’t realize how flat the land where you live is until I looked closer at the first set of photo’s.
    I bet those Bulls make quite the sounds.
    I enjoyed your set.

  9. The cloud over the cattle is fantastic! It reminds me of a cartoon quote bubble. 🙂
