A Couple of New Kids on the Block

I recently noticed twins down the road (with their mama).

Mama cow stopped chewing her cud to check me out.
 Their llama guardian grazed nearby.

Paula said...

Cows can be so peaceful.

Nancy J said...

Twins, not common, about 1 in 4000 cattle births, or 1% to 7%, so I hope they thrive. Double ear tags? Maybe she had an extra one put in when she was scanned? Do they scan on that farm?I know they do on huge sheep farms, and separate the multiples to better feed paddocks, and easier access when the lambs are born. Lovely to see another one to guard them as they grow.

Stephen Hayes said...

Looks like a nice place to graze.

Betty Manousos said...

gosh, they are adorable!!

RedPat said...

I think we should name the twins Ding and Dong. Then you'd have Mama, Llama.. Ding Dong.

I love the cows shot and the Llama as well.

Larry Ostby said...

Beef it's what's for dinner. Not so sure about that llama. Sweaters maybe?
