I will assume Big Red is the one that looks like it would be no problem to knock over an outhouse?

Desiree said...

Delightful! The calves are adorably cute, those hens look so relaxed and contented enjoying their group sunbathing and Big Red is one impressive bull strutting his stuff for the ladies. What a lovely life you lead, Vicki!

They are all very beautiful, one can see they are well taken care of! Lots of work, I assume, I wish everybody lots of rewards.

A wonderful Sunday to you all,
with time to enjoy the fruits of your labor,
Merisi

Oh Vicki they are so precious. How anyone can say living in the country isn't for them is beyond me. Great pictures!

Louise said...

That Big Red is sure a handsome fella. And, that babies are, of course, adorable.

Thérèse said...

Nice family! And plenty to take care of everyday...

Kath said...

You are so blessed!

I don't know which one it is, but that last one is giving me the eye.

Three of the granddaughters showed their pigs at the county fair last week. One of them took first place. All three of them sold the pigs for pennies. So goes the economy.

I love them all! Interesting that the hens all take a dust bath so close together.

GrandmaK said...

What beautiful eye the wee calf has!!! Wishing you a grand week! Cathy

Big Red is the bull, Xena is the red calf and Clover is the little Jersey who looks like a deer.

Justin does most of the milking and calf care -- Claui or John picks up the slack when Justin has to be elsewhere -- I just take pictures...

Star said...

Oh your adorable animals. They are so photogenic!!! I would love to feed a calf like that from a bottle. The chucks are keeping cool as best they can, I suppose.
A glowing advert for your farm and your well-being Vicki.

Wonderful shots of your beautiful farm animals -- barbara

I, too, love the Jersey calf. I can almost smell them and feel them when I remember the ones we had on the farm when I was a kid.

Jean Baardsen said...

Beautiful animals! I actually thought the last one was a deer. I'd enjoy your part of the project - taking the pictures!

Jill said...

What cute little babies!!!

Tammy said...

Wow, can't believe that Clover is already catching up with Xena. What a pair they are, I imagine. It's great that they each have a playmate now. Is Big Red a nice bull or is he one to be on the other side of the fence from? Had some bad experiences with Guernsey bulls at my Grandma's farm when I was a kid and they do make me uneasy! ha...
Great pictures.

Tammy, Big Red is a relatively mild-tempered Devon bull. But Marigold is in heat and he thought he'd like to get into the milk barn with her. At times like this, it's nice to have a stout fence. Once milking was over, Marigold was put back in the pasture with him.
