A more aptly named bull I have never met. Evidently this guy never misses a meal, makes lovely strong babies and is very gentle.
He had a herd of heifers with him. Aunty Del feeling like the mature student in a class of teenagers sauntered over to see what the old girls were up to. The electric fence kept her from joining them. Evidently the old girls don’t like visitors but the younger heifers don’t mind.
Tia immediately made friends with the bull.
They played for a while then wandered off to graze.
This is a lovely little farm, the cows have a creek for water and trees for shade. Really nice place for my girls to meet their new Bull-friend.
What is this bush? (above). I want one – especially if it is native!
Yesterday my Airbnb guest and I went for a walk in Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie.
We went on a short wander – about three miles, just enjoying the prairie and of course I came back with lots of information for my own wild areas.
The area we were walking in had many many old bunkers.
Such a large and wonderful project.
This morning I started early – collecting all the weeds in the hay field. I wanted to get going before it got too hot and before the planes started spraying.
After breakfast I will hook the rake to the tractor and get to rolling everything over. The oats will take some drying.
Hopefully the spray plane will have moved on to another field by then. The spraying is endless at this time of year.
I hope you have a lovely day.
