Is that cow's head resting on the fencepost???? Looks like it is.... ha

Great 'fence' picture from West Virginia, Carletta.
Hugs,

Great looking herefords in West Virginia for this time of year.
The pasture in the background looks a bit bleak, but after winter, to be expected. I suppose this herd was barn fed during the winter months?
Makes it hard on the owners'pockets - barn fed cattle are expensive to feed during the winter months.
So when non-rural people buy a steak from the supermarket or hopefully from a private butcher, the meat didn't just appear on the shelf or the display window. It cost heaps to the farmer/rancher to put it there. So please don't whinge about the cost, just enjoy the succulence of the steak. Yummy!

Happy cows, sitting in the shade.

That cow looks comfortable behind or against the fence post.

Ebie said...

You may think that I am funny, but last Sunday at the restaurant, one of the diners ask if the beef in the hamburger was grass fed.

They look so comfy - nap time.

Lovely photo, Carletta.
I'm thinking "the good life" but then the end isn't so good, is it? (and I'm not vegetarian, though considering it!!)

Beth said...

"wow, laying down on the job... what are they thinking. i tell you i'm going tell boss about this." what a fence. works well i see. (:

Rebecca said...

The one to the right is striking a nice pose for you. She looks like she is keeping her eye one you.

Naptime would be a good title for the second shot!

I love white-faced Herefords. They used to be very popular here where I live in Texas but lately the ranchers seem to be going for either Angus or Charolais. My mother used to always have a white-faced polled Hereford bull.

I wonder how long that post will last, it looks like it is rotting slowly

Sweeeeet...or should I say "mooooving"? [kidding] I love the white faced cattle image. Being a farm gal going to my grandparents' house/farm when I was a youngster, I loved having cows lick my hand...their tongues are super. LOL Weird, I know.

I love that, old school barbed wire fence and some old school white faced herefords. Would make some of my old ranching relatives in Idaho smile.

I remember barbed wire fences and hereford cattle ... reminds me that the livestock show is this month! Happy Critter Day!

Pat said...

Love the cows!

Annie @ButteryBooks said...

I haven't seen herefords in my parts (S. Texas) in many years. I just love the breed especially after watching The Rare Breed with Jimmy Stewart and Maureen O'Hara as a kid!

Marie said...

Thanks for your comment on my post, Carletta. I think you are right...it's more like Alice in Wonderland than Secret Garden!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Aren't they beauties, relaxin out there under the tree! =)

Mama Zen said...

Faye said...

Very handsome #9! Why is it that cattle like to lay so close to the fence? Afraid they'll miss out on the action?

Teresa said...

Great shot. I love Herefords.

Genie said...

Well, these guys or dolls look pretty content sitting there beside the fence. Such a pastoral setting. genie

Rose said...

I like the feel of this...it takes me back to childhood when sometimes my nephew and I entertained ourselves watching the cattle.
