This is what 16 pregnant cows can do to an acre of land in 4 days. It has actually been 6, but they had this munched down days ago. We were hoping to keep them here until they all gave birth, but it looks like we will have to risk their safety (from coyotes) in order to give them some more pasture.
No biggie. They just moved over a little.
Look at all the lush grass.
This One is Number 147. She is eating out of my hand already. I have to admit that the cows scare me a little. They are just so big and I'm afraid of getting run over. But....I'm getting used to them as much as they are becoming used to me. We keep trying to come visit every day. I'm also afraid to name her. If these cows are anything like my chickens, the ones I like will succumb to some tragic death.
OH......these are all the mamas....so we don't plan on eating them. However, if some of these mamas continue to bully the others they certainly will make it into our freezer.
This is Rose. Oh shoot. I named her. Anyway, she is nice too. And curious. I think her and Henry will be friends.
Speaking of Henry...
Here is the little fella enjoying the new pasture.
He does not eat out of my hand yet, but is getting closer every day. Today I let out a low pitch moan and he responded with a cute little cry and came towards me. There is hope for him yet. Apparently they live to be 15-20years old!!! If he is not eating out of my hands at that point I'm doing something seriously wrong.
