Summer Cattle...



It is summer and...

the living is easy ~



The elk enjoy grazing along the hillside

with the cattle...





This is a yearling bull elk






The cattle don't mind

and neither does the elk.






Our yearling heifer, Golden Girl,

seems to take notice of the bull elk...







She wants to get a bit closer,

but he is not interested in being sniffed by her.




When the cattle aren't grazing on the hillside...


they are down below in the swampy area.

This is the last bit of green grass on our place

this late in the summer.






If you click to enlarge the photo...

you will see the round hay bales 

stored in the barn.

It won't be long until we are feeding hay.....sigh.






This is a 3 year old replacement heifer

enjoying swamp grass.....yummy.






How beautiful is this little squirrel

perched on the back yard fence...


We have a few more precious weeks of summer,

we savor every minute of it.

Love the elk with the cattle! Hard to believe summer is coming to a close! :(

Your pictures make me miss home so much! Don't you love how dry and brown we get by August! Well, usually late June for us since you get more rain. Love the elk and Golden Girl's interest in him! Will she be ready to be bred this autumn or will you wait a year? Never having any cattle (I'm not counting the 3 steers we fed up and freezered), I am clueless and interested! Your little squirrel friend is adorable.
