The Finale ~ Nurture Photo Challenge

This in the Finale week for the Winter Nurture Photo Challenge with Kristi at Live and Love Out Loud and Rebecca at Bumbles and Light.  Thank You Ladies for hosting another fun photo challenge.

This black calf was an “Oops Baby” and Christmas surprise for Dad and Mom.

I had to share one more lamb picture.  This close up is my interpretation of minimalism and the lamb is white.  With art, as with life, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go.

“I believe farming provides education for life that no other occupation teaches so much about birth, growth, and maturity in such a variety of ways.” ~Excerpt from The Farmer’s Creed.

The Rancher and I treasure our way of life.  Ranching is not an easy way to make a living, but it is a very satisfying lifestyle.  We are proud to continue a family tradition, be self-employed and raise good cattle.

No two days are ever alike.  We have a routine to do chores, but we never know what kind of issues we will have to deal with when we step out the door.  Between the weather, animal behavior and things that go wrong we get good at going with the flow.

I believe many of the best things in life are indeed free: the splendor of a sunrise, the rapture of wide open spaces, the exhilarating sight of your land greening each spring.  ~Excerpt from The Farmer’s Creed.

The stunning blue Nebraska sky can take one’s breath away.

When the shadows of life seem great, close your eyes and think about the simple everyday things you have to be thankful for.  There are a lot of them!  Minimalize the drama, work through the hardships and find the silver linings in your life.  Treasure your family and friends.  Have faith in yourself and what you are doing.
