I saw a Western Meadow Lark,Western Meadowlark Breeding adult a bird I just love to see and hear. That is a photo off the All About Birds web site, but I wanted you to see what one looks like! 🙂

I thought I heard one the other day, but today I actually saw one

Even though the storm clouds are playing with us

The spring birds are coming back!

Spring is coming…for certain and for sure!

Cow Check—-Thursday, March 10, 2016

Alfalfa-frield-GoneThe cows are ever so calm.  Terry started working the alfalfa field (he is ripping here) and they didn’t even move. (Shows how much we and Davis’ are with them. :0  )

RippingThe Mom’s loved hanging in the field eating the turned up roots.

Rolling-!The little ones didn’t even run from the big loud noisy machine. (Probably because the Mom’s didn’t run or holler at the kids to RUN! :0  )  (Here Terry is rolling)

Rolling-1So Terry had to either get out and make them move or work around them.

CalmCalm, calm calm.

LunchThat evening Terry, Boomer and I rode through the cows on our evening check…There was a BRAND NEW little one just eating lunch.

HurryNow THIS mom decided she didn’t want to have her little one subjected to two noisy four-wheelers…she took off at a run. The little one had to struggle to keep up, but it did.

The-BabysitterAt the Upper End we ran into one of the ‘babysitter’ cows…she had 8 little ones she was watching.

It won’t be long now before Mr. Davis comes and gets his cows and moves them onto his ranch, just below our farm…about a mile away.

Until he comes…I’m going to enjoy every minute of the time we have left with them.
