So, last Friday we bought this 6 month old bull calf named Buddy. I know what you’re thinking, Kristine, you already have a bull for your herd. Yes, I do, but this little guy is going to our friend in North Louisiana and I’m trading him for something even better. Some of you may be able to guess what it is, but if not you’ll be seeing the announcement in the next day or two when we pick it up. I’m SO SO SO excited to bring it home and can’t wait to share what it is with y’all! Leave your guesses down below and we’ll see who can figure out 😉❤️ PS, it’s something that I already own, not something new!

It’s this little guy’s first #redwattlewednesday hosted by Janice @rogerscreekfarm ❤️ He’s a Partridge Cochin Bantam and a little sweetheart with beautiful coloring. He’s from my spring chicks and I will be keeping him because of his gentle demeanor!

Daisy’s belly is getting soooooo big! She should be the first to calve around the end of October. And no, Anna is not as big as Daisy, she was on an incline, although it’s getting close 😂 And also, no, Anna is not Daisy’s calf but Rosie (red cow in the back) and Daisy co-parented this little monster together 😂🤷🏼‍♀️

Paddington has fancy feet and a fancy mohawk 😍 Sharing for #mohawkmonday hosted by Tami @rustymoosefarm ❤️

Found this HUGE spider in the oak trees. It was at least as big as my hand and the web was about four square feet and super strong. I believe this is an Orb Weaver but I’m not 100% sure. It was eating a dragonfly and just being a majestic creature, very cool to watch it.

It’s web worm season aka Mother Nature is decorating for Halloween a little early cause she likes to stay spooky 🐛🕸🕷

Booty got her like 😳 A late, funny little #fluffybuttfriday for y’all 😂

Betty is thicker than a snickers 😂 I wonder how big that baby she’s cooking will be 🤔

No one does side eye quite as well as Rosie. Here, she is giving side eye to her calf who is nursing from her even though she’s almost as big as Rosie herself. Can y’all tell what she’s thinking? 😂

This guy is INTENSE 😳 Luckily he’s a very sweet boy and only looks like a velociraptor 😂 He’s a Dark Brahma and one of 3 I ended up with. Going to be hard to decide which of these boys to keep because they’re all very sweet but I can tell their coloring varies slightly and this boy has a ton of purples and greens so he might be my favorite!

Little runty baby Elsa is actually starting to fill out and looking less pound puppy and more cow puppy! She just about half Charolais and half Angus and I find she’s favoring her mom’s Charolais. Charolais always seem to grow funny until about 2 years old, in my opinion. I think it’s because they get really long, then tall, then long, etc 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m definitely missing my cow babies so much at the moment though, haven’t seen them in a whole 7 days 😩 My life seems incomplete without my daily coating of cow slobber 💔

This is the face of a turkey who was done with the rain earlier this week. They did have dry places to go but the meat turkeys aren’t the smartest birds and decided to make like ducks and hang out in the mud puddles 🤨 Sharing for #turkeysnoodsunday hosted by Stacy @5rfarmoregon ❤️

When we first got CC she had spent her first year of life in an apartment, after being born on a cattle farm to working cattle parents. We’ve had her for a little over a year now and she is SO in her element on the farm. She loves guarding the chickens and checking cows and playing in the mud. She may be a runt and half her normal size but I don’t doubt that she could take something down to defend her “babies”. It’s amazing to see how even though she was raised as a city dog, her true breeding as a working cattle dog shined through as soon as she came to live in the country. CC the tiny Shar Pei is a wee little force to be reckoned with. And she’s kinda cute 😍🤷🏼‍♀️

Is this a humble mushroom, or is this a lollipop?

The green pasture really makes Violet’s silver a bit darker and her white face look more distinct from her silver body 😍

Moist chickies. I wanna know her secret for maintaining those day glow white feathers in all of this mud 😳🤔

That face you make when you realize it’s finally Friday 😱 And yes, I did get more Guineas. 6 little Coral Blue babies to add to my screaming banshee pack. I couldn’t help myself, it was a pre-surgery present 🤷🏼‍♀️

A pile of wet, kind of muddy eggs from Monday. Here’s an interesting story: I was picking eggs in the rain, putting eggs in rain jacket pocket, then notice that Roscoe at some point was sneakily biting the pocket so that the eggs would drip through so he could eat them. While I was still wearing said jacket. Aren’t LGDs just delightful? 😐
