Black Baldy Cows

I took my camera along when J and I went to help Cousin T work cows.  I can’t stand the thought of missing a Cannon moment.

Cousin T has more black baldy cows than we do.  I have always liked baldies for their characteristic white faces.

Old Man Winter showed up late yesterday afternoon.  We got snow.  I did the 5:00 am heifer check and we had snow drifts, no wind and 19 degrees.  We need the moisture!

Last weekend I started to battle a head cold and terrible cough.  I still have a cough.  Sometimes, I feel close to normal again!  This morning is not one of those times.

Over the weekend  I didn’t get much house work or cooking done.  I did help J with chores.  I also got in a couple good naps and read my book while cuddled next to a sweet Little Dog.

Last October J started growing a winter beard.  It’s a nice beard; I would love to show you a picture.  Last weekend J pulled out a set of suspenders!  He needs them to wear with a pair of insulated pants that are too big.  I am married to a bearded man who wears suspenders; distinguished character at it’s best.  Just in case you are wondering, no one warned me about this when we were dating!

Happy Hump Day!

    Lol! Nobody ever warns you about the suspenders. Have to look the future relatives over carefully before the marriage. His Uncle M and Great-Uncle J both wore them.

      I always liked Uncle M’s suspenders! I forgot about Great-Uncle wearing them. I like it, but unfortunately there will be no pictures posted. He won’t let me document his nice beard either.

    Love all the pics of the baldys! 🙂
    Jerry wears suspenders sometimes too but gave up the beard, he said it was too gray! LOL!!

    Hubby sounds quite cool to me. 🙂
    Sounds like you have what hubby and I had this month. Hope you get well, soon. ♥

    I’m a fan of their cute faces, too. However, I would not be a fan of the face of a bearded hubby! Hope you feel better soon!

      It amazes me what a head-cold can do to my almost 31 year old body. I took a nap this afternoon from 12:30-2:45! No wonder I was feeling tough this morning.

  5. Love the baldies – I never knew they were called that! I hope you start feeling better soon. The colds this winter seem to have a way of dragging on.

    sweet pics! hope you feel better soon!

  7. I grew up on a farm/ranch where my parents raised registered Herefords oh-so-many-years-ago. Now Herefords are a rare sight, but there are Angus everywhere. And there are quite a few black baldy cattle in the big herds. Great images!

    • Robyn says:

      Thanks for stopping in Evelyn. You are right, Angus seems to have taken the industry by storm. I enjoy seeing a pasture full of red cattle grazing.

  8. A lovely collection of this breed. I love seeing them mixed in with the angus and herefords around here. Such a treat. 🙂

      It is a treat to see a pasture of Hereford cattle. You are right; the Hereford herds seem to be fewer and further between. One of the neighbors in our cattle working crew raises Horned Herefords. It’s fun to take picts of red and horned cattle.
