Meanwhile in Winter


Meanwhile back at the ranch, where we have cow share, it is winter too. On California's central coast this means overcast skies when it is not rainy or sunny, and lots of mud and grass.

Birds replace the leaves on the trees.

Somewhat out of season there two new babies.
A calf, Gordon seen here with his mum.


And this is Jocelyn with an arrowhead on her head.

According to the Tong Shu this was a double Pig Day, so I was not surprised to be mobbed by a party of pigs. Here they are practicing for a chorus line.

I love the bird tree and Jocelyn's star! When one of my photo CDs mysteriously got wiped, I lost all my pics of the farm animals at Canterbury Shaker Village. Your piggy tail pic made me think of that.

Cow & Calf are sweet. I remember landlord used to have And calf loves to jump all around the ground if free.

Janow'a ranch has a bird tree just like that. Redwing blackbirds. They are so loud you can't have a conversation near the tree.

Those calves are so sweet. Their eyes are gorgeous and the piggy butts? I want to chase them around and pinch them a little.

DKM-truly! they were so funny the way they all came ambling toward me and started rooting about, as if they thought I should be doing same.
BG-lost photos :( I know the feeling.
S-"now present the butt!"
