Yearlings and the Cherry Tree...

Our 30 year old Pie Cherry Tree 

lost a few limbs

in the winter storms...

The tree limbs fell on the board fence,

making easy access for the yearling cattle

to get into the front yard.....eek!

Today is clean up day...

The cherry tree needs a good pruning anyway.

Anytime we work in the front yard,

it becomes a spectator sport for the

yearling cattle...

They find most anything we do...

terribly interesting.

Even the bottle calves come up 

to the fence to check out what's going on...

Those tree limbs fill up the back

of the pick up bed...

Even Sparky the rooster comes to investigate...

In no time, the cowboy has new fence boards

in place...

You know what that means...

time to paint the fence!

  1. That's so funny... we once had a cow that would come and snuffle in my hair when I'd be working near the fence line. I don't think she liked my gel because she would always sneeze on me! Ewewe

  2. Love how the yearlings are so interested in what you are doing and how they took off when the chain saw fired up! They are so cute. That cherry wood will make some good smoking wood in the autumn! When we had a few steers, we found they could jump over 5-6 foot fences when they wanted to go on a walk-about! Another farmer found them on his land about 10 miles away!!! I didn't know they were into jumping - good thing the horses are willing to stay in their pasture, most of the time!

  3. LuAnn, clearly activity is very interesting. :) So cute how they watch every move. :) I hope they didn't get out.
    Sparky is gorgeous!

    Have a great weekend,


  4. I like to see your quilts but I also enjoy seeing the farm life. Thanks for sharing.

  5. It's always something on a ranch, isn't it. Once my young nephew was visiting and he asked if the cows were all for sale. "No" I replied, "Why do you ask that?" He said, "Because they all have price tags in their ears!"
