Two Horses

Thanksgiving was a few short days ago and now it’s the second of December. In another blink of an eye we will be writing 2015 as the date.

If you are a regular follower you know I have a soft spot for horses. While at the Derflinger Angus Bull Sale on November 22, 2014, I spotted these two.

Thanksgiving Day J and I started chores early and traveled to Motorcycle City to spend the day with his parents. J’s brother, wife and son were visiting from Illinois. Granny and J’s Aunt and Uncle joined us too. We had a nice day visiting and enjoying the company of family.

Friday was a gorgeous day. Between chores and odd jobs we enjoyed the sunshine and spent most of the day outside. That evening we went to a neighbor’s for supper. We enjoyed spending time with family friends and visiting about the fun J and his buddies had in college.

The weekend was cold. Cold and windy with a few flurries. Monday afternoon the wind went down and we had a high in the mid 20’s. Much nicer than the single digit high we saw on Saturday.

With the cold weather we have been feeding cake (also called range cubes) regularly. There is nothing our cows love more than cake. It’s fun to watch the cows when they see the pickup or hear the horn. Some of those girls still have a little buck and jump in them.

What is something you enjoy taking pictures of?

    It’s always nice to see a couple horses around a cattle farm, makes me think they don’t necessarily fall under the ‘hay burner’ category! We’ve never fed cake, but you’re not the first person who has said how much their cow love it!

    The palomino is gorgeous!
    We’ve never fed cake. But the sound of the feed truck usually gets them running! Lol! And the horn!
    We pregged almost 500 cows today with the hydraulic chute! Wow! It was awesome! I was surprised how well the cows went in and out. And no jumping around in the chute! It was a long day…we have the rest to do Thursday! 🙂 I’m liking the new chute.
