So pretty! I have an affinity for cows....growing up across from a dairy farm. But no llamas...!

The second I started reading this post I had a flashback, but no cows were in it. ♪ ♫ "Down on the corner, out in the street" ♫ ♪
I don't know how I'm going to get that song out of my head now. LOL
Nice cows!

Gerald (SK14) said...

llamas and cows together - that's cool.

First I've heard of Llamas as guards. The contrast of all the green surrounding the animals is nice.

It's nice to see all that green in your bit of the country! Let's hope for it to stay nice and green and that you see plenty of rain!

Debbie said...

so funny to see the sweet lama with the big bad cows!!!

Georgette Sullins said...

I think we've had a year's worth of rain this spring. Love the llama, llama with the mama.

Ramona said...

Lynne said...

Would be nice if people could adopt a similar "getting along" in other "fields of dreams" . . .

Rose said...

That last is what is known as an adorable fence shot! Or should I say an adorable put a fence in front of it shot????

There are so many calves around and never where I can stop to take photos!

That is a great photo! The grass looks nice and soft and good to lay on, and the llama and cows look content.

Lovely pasture and healthy animals photos. Love the green, green grass and clear sky.

Debby Ray said...

Good morning, Theresa! I'm not sure if it's the cows that compliment the barbed wire fence or the other way around. Either way, I love it! Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

Very cute fence shots Theresa. Nice of him to pose for you. Such a cutie and neat to see Mama Cow and Aunt Llama standing by.

ladyfi said...

Looks lovely and summery.

Karen S. said...

...and there to meet you was a sweet-faced cow welcome, watching you! Lovely scene.

Linda Kay said...

Lovely cows and the fences are so traditional.

Carola Bartz said...

A lovely scenery and all that lush green grass. Wonderful! Is the llama really guarding the cows (or something else)?

Montanagirl said...

Wow, it really is green there!!

Adam Jones said...

A Llama!! I wasn't expecting that at all.

Andrea Priebe said...

I have heard of Llamas being used to guard a herd, but I am not sure why. Do they spit in the eye of a coyote or do they have other skills they can apply. Actually I don't know what they are guarding against ... do you? Cool little fence ... good old fashion wire is it barbed wire? I can't quite tell :)

Small City Scenes said...

Sweet. They are watching you.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tex Thanks for hosting.Love all the gree and the Llama

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Tall grass = happy cattle! I've seen llamas guarding sheep a few times, but never saw them used for cattle! Cool. (A sheep rancher told us once that his guard llama treated the sheep as if they were his stupid and silly little brothers that he had been put in charge of.)

Ida said...

Everyone looks so content in these shots. What a nice country scene.

Stephanie Faris said...

Ahh...the good life!

Llamas must be great guards because they can be *mean*! I worked with them years ago... Love that green grass!

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

Blogger profile for my blog(s). How do I switch to a Google+ profile?

Thanks for telling me about this profile, a few people had told em too, I have no idea about this profile thing. I have a lot of information in my Blogger profile, and I am afraid to lose them. I am not very technical.

Thanks,

Ann

Munir said...

It seems like the Mama Cow has given the Lama some kind of confidence.

SweetMarie said...

love this kind of bonding! we can learn from animals. :)

Rory Bore said...

no green grass yet for our poor cows... but soon! it was warm enough for short sleeves and no socks today.

Linda said...

Llamas are so awesome!

Randy said...

The cows make the shot!

Paul said...

Really lush and green looking, lucky cows and llama!

What if they had llamas in the Old West? I wonder if everything would have been different. A buttefly beats its wings on the other side of the world, and such as.
