Mini-series 1 – bubba
I have a little series of posts I will publish here today – trying to make sure we don’t get too far behind with our bloggy record-keeping of Life on the Land. We are going away tomorrow you see… on an epic journey which will involve my family and my friend and fellow blogger OopsieMumma and her family. It’ll be bigger than Ben Hur. But you’ll have to wait and see.
To keep you sweet, I am sharing first some of the sweetest images I think I have EVER taken.
They are of a couple of little bubba’s born in the last week here.
The first is a little heifer, who needed a little TLC while we cared for her Mama.
She is ADORABLE. We picked her up when she only hours old, and with barely a thing in her stomach, and she STILL took some catching!
We brought her home and offered her a bottle and some cuddles.
She took to both with gusto.
Some are keen to live hard and strong from the start, some are not. She is DEFINITELY a survivor this one!
She had the most incredible pale eyes.
Look, there’s me taking photos of her, looking at me!
The other calf was also one who was born in the yards. He is a curious sausage…
I adore this series of pics – and I managed to LOSE them all for three days. I hate that.
Specially when I think one might even be calendar-worthy…
What do you reckon?
This last one reminds me of that famous painting by Michaelangelo ‘The Creating of Adam’...
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this lot.
