About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Meet the Neighbors

These gals and guys are my company most days. I like to sit outside in the rocking chair on the front porch, and it is so quiet that I can hear them pulling the grass up with their mouths. You will see that the pasture looks very highly grazed. The Mennonite young man who takes care of my neighbors comes everyday and moves them to new pasture. So this area is part of an intensive grazing system. Sometimes they get out of their fence and come and visit me around the cabin. So without further ado - Meet the Neighbors.

I think I need a new digital camera - so that will go into the budget planning over the next few months. It is overcast today - but this seems really washed-out, sorry for the poor quality. Looks to me like there is a mix of dairy and beef cows - Holstein crossed with Angus, Hereford, and Charlois - a lot of the females have that bony appearance of dairy cows.

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday, and have a blesseed rest of the week.
Take care Ya'll, from Casey Co KY.

Cows can make some great neighbors, I have learned. Except when you get up in the morning, look out the bathroom window, and see them munching out in the yard!!

You'll need to change your header message - since you're no longer stuck in the city!! yay! (or in Fayette Co., for that matter)

Are you retired, or do you have to commute each day to an outside job?

Great post, Kathy! Think I'll steal the title "meet the neigh-bors" and write one of my own -grin-. Sent you a letter this week, hope it arrives. It was written in dribs and drabs, over a period of a few days/week with lots of news and commentary.
Hope you're doing well, stay warm and the potty thing is illegal as all get out. Everyone has to have a septic if they want to get their building approved, even in the back woods.

Now there's some neighbours we should all be so lucky to have!

Thinking of you!
