3. More like she places one leg between the wires then another then the next and the last.

When younger she used to jump fences - had a heckuva time keeping her in.
Thanks!

7. I spent my youthful summers working on my grandparents dairy farm.

I really like cows.

23. I have very fond memories of those times.

The farm is now a housing development.
Thank you.

14. Thanks Kali - I hadn't looked that close. Our neighbors run cows a couple times a year.

Shadow is not fond of them.

19. there is quite a bit of age variability in those calves

either they haven't weaned last fall's calves or they calve year round and/or let the cows self-wean. don't see that very often, most people try to keep a tight calving period and wean earlier than "natural"

20. Thanks for the information.

I've never really paid attention to how they run their operation. It's like we'll get up one morning and cows are back in the pasture. Mostly they grow timothy hay on the land.

21. I like seeing rural lifestyle posts here

not enough Dems out here in the sticks anymore, despite what all the New Deal and other progressive actions have provided for this demographic.

you are obviously in a little wetter area than me. I'm in the southeast corner of Arizona.

22. Oh Kali What a beautiful, fetching photograph!

I love the way the dogs are looking back at you. I was raised in a small town and still much prefer rural to urban. Live now in central Washington State, nowhere near Seattle nor Spokane. It gets so quiet, sometimes I can hear the motion of birds' wings flying overhead.

We live outside a redneck city (more like a town) still in denial of the pandemic and convinced trump should rightly be president. Again. One of the things I really like about Democratic Underground is DEMOCRATIC. And members' friendliness, down-to-earth-ness.

But back to your photo the lighting, composition, the Dogs! It's a great picture!

I'm heading to bed. Oh, one other comment: You really know your cows!

Goodnight

17. Welcome to DU!

More great shots, thanks!

You must live somewhere in the vicinity of the Oklahoma panhandle, five state region. That is just a guess going by the images you have on-line of the Black-billed Magpie and bird on a wire I think is a Say's Phoebe.

18. Thank You StClone!

Nope. Central Washington State. East side of the Cascades. A little closer to Seattle than Spokane, but same latitude basically. We live outside the city of Ellensburg on thirteen acres, on which my wife built up a horse retirement farm.

Where're you?
