Junie's Place: On the farm...

On the farm...


Junie & the cows!








Today Charles called me from the pasture when he went to feed the cows to tell me we had another baby girl calf !
She is a little dark brown calf-and right away the name Gypsy came to mind! So I told him to name her Gypsy Rose! :) He didn't like it, much, but I always go with my first thought in names...well- almost always!

Here are the pictures of the babies!


Top to bottom:

Gypsy Rose

Silver Bell

How-Now

~~~

~and here is a little Bull a little bit older than these 3 babies!

His name is 'FuzzyFace!'



~~

Last but not least I give you 'Big John.'

This is the new bull we bought from a neighbor. Charles is quite pleased with this one.














...a good day in the country!


Love,

Junie

Oh they are soooo cute!! I love the names you've picked, especially "How Now"
My grandma would often greet us by saying "How Now Brown Cow" which seems sort of silly, doesn't it??

Hi Susie,

LOL- you kinda begin to run out of names after a few years of having cows,goats,pigs,ducks,geese, chickens,dogs, cats,fish,hamsters,gerbils,mice, a monkey-a pony-an Iguana -snakes - turtles...

:) I'm sure I'm not remembering ALL the critters we've had over the years!
...Well- a family can have a lot of pets over 45+ years!

;) I think that was a cute way for your grandmother to greet you!

Junie, I came here to the comments to tell you that I thought "How-Now" was the most hilarious name ever for a brown cow, but I see everyone has beaten me to it! That name is soooo funny! I've had a chuckle over it a couple of times now! :)

Hi Skye,

:0 I'm happy you find the name funny! Well- it's the first name that came to me when C. told me about the little brown calf! So she got stuck with the name!;)

Hope you're having a good day today!

Hi Bonnie,

Thanks for coming by.

LOL- like your tags!

As for eating these cows - so far we haven't! After I NAME THEM they are pretty safe- at least from our table!

We do have to sell some of them as we go along but I convience myself they are not butchered! :)
