The Boys on the Corner

These two bulls live across the road from one another. One day this spring, I caught them sizing each other up from the safety of their own pastures.

 Little guy thinks he's tough (I think he's a dwarf breed)...
 but my money's on this big Angus.

Oh that is funny!

Pretty safe to size up the competition from the safety of your own pasture :)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

They're both bullish on themselves. Bully for you!

Revrunner said...

Besides, he's got earrings. :-)

Gayle said...

Good One

Jo said...

Those are two handsome lads eyeing each other. Great post.

Anvilcloud said...

Well, the little one does have horns.

Julia said...

The little one is still just a kid. Give him time and he'll match the Angus.

Have a great weekend Theresa,
Hugs,

No competition here. I'll bet it was enjoyable to watch the challengers' expressions and stance.

I'm chuckling over that Angus with the white ring around it's nose! Could be in the milk commercial!

EG CameraGirl said...

Hehehe!

Filip Demuinck said...

The brown one looks a lot nicer.

Greetings,

Ela said...

They do have such beautiful faces and amazing eyes !
Have a nice weekend :)

Sandra said...

they are gorgeous HUNKS... i love the face on the dwarf, with that painted muzzle.. of course i assume i would NOT be able to kiss that muzzle.

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

The fences are doing a good work.
No fight today :)

Maggid said...

They ARE Handsome!

Lois said...

Probably good that they have fences between them.

DJan said...

I think the little guy is kind of cute. But I wouldn't get in a pasture with either one of them. :-)

Kathy said...

The competition between males of most species can be quite entertaining.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I'm putting my money same place as you!

Mildred said...

Oh how funny. Reminds me of the time a very friendly pit bull visited us at another home and through the glass door, Harriet growled at him!!!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

That's quite funny.

eileeninmd said...

Good Morning Tex, they are handsome bulls. I think the dwarf breed is cute, I love his face.. Great shots! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Brian King said...

Boys will be boys. Besides, little guy has some, er, horns or something. :-)

Birdman said...

Bull!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Great photos, Tex!
I like the bare trees too.

joeh said...

I'm sorry, I keep seeing that butchers chart overlaid on these fine creatures.

jo(e) said...

Those fences do not look strong enough!

Sally said...

HA! I wouldn't want to be in the middle of the road when one came out the fence. :)

magnoliasntea said...

Oh yeah, the Angus looks like he could hold his own. Btw, google has dumped me off of everyone's follow list (argh). I don't understand what's up with them, but anyways that's why it looks like I just started following you.

HI Tex Your words made me laugh. Two wonderful beasts. Have a wonderful weekend.

messymimi said...

The Angus might win, but i bet the dwarf breed would make it a costly victory. Most little guys learn early to stand up for themselves!

ThreeOldKeys said...

what a load of bull.

who knew such a rude comment would ever be appropriate?

Sylvia K said...

Ha! A load of bull indeed!! Love those earrings!! Great start for my weekend!!

SweetMarie said...

the comment before me is so funny!! I think they're really lonely, but trying to seem tough because that's what males do. LOL

Terry and Linda said...

Spring! It does mighty things....

I hope that's a strong fence. They are big boys who might get angry.

Bonitas y simpáticas imágenes..un saludo desde Murcia...

Bob Bushell said...

Bulls forever.

DIMI said...

Lovely bulls Tex!!Nice faces!!Like those earrings!!
Have a happy weekend!

Montanagirl said...

Hmmmm...prob'ly best to keep them separated!

don said...

It's all in the mind of the bull isn't it. If you're small and think you're big...you are big. Hopefully they will never meet to settle this.

Gail said...

No male can accept he could lose. Good thing the fences are strong.

Irma said...

Beautiful bulls.

Debbie said...

hehehe....that really sums it up, it looks serious!!!!

Crafty Green Poet said...

wow, they look like serious rivals!

Stephen Hayes said...

I wonder what would happen if those fences came down. Take care and see you in three weeks when i return from vacation.

William Kendall said...

I don't think you'd want to annoy either of them. We get the odd Angus up here, but I've never seen the other one in a field here.

Small City Scenes said...

Oh too funny.
Looking is ok one says but don't try anything.

Laura. M said...

At first the branches make it another antler;)))

thepoodleanddogblog said...

Actually it's possible that they would form a close friendship.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I wouldn't want to see them fight ! : )

Marit Sønstebø said...

Handsome animals!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I love that first shot. The tree branches behind the bull's head make an impressive set of antlers...like a cross between a bovine and an elk or something. :)

Gosia k said...

they look so serious and dangerous

RedPat said...

They look rather calm!

Nancy J said...

Yes, ditto to Linda at To Behold, those branches just add a little more majesty to the way he stands, very regal, and fine looking

Pantherka said...

It's very beautiful.

Bethany Carson said...

Those are some good-looking bulls! Love the little guy's horns!

The Dancing Donkey said...

That little one is a jersey bull. I put my money with him. They are, hands down, the meanest bull around. Never turn your back on a jersey bull and never go near one without a good escape route in mind.

Miss Val's Creations said...

I love those faces!

Red said...

Well, the angus has an enormous temper. Don't mess with him.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Both are handsome fellows!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

"Meeeerrggg."
"Maaaougggg."

DeniseinVA said...

Handsome fellas!

Ms. A said...

What do you mean these earrings make me look like a sissy! I dare you to come over here and say that again!

Mary Kirkland said...

Good looking animals.

Mama Zen said...

My money's on the angus, too!

Chandra Eswaran said...

Them some boys, alright. The 3rd one is uber-cute. They are all beautiful animals, serving a purpose.
Nice collection of friends around town :)

Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Rose said...

The one you think is a dwarf breed is an odd looking boy....

Our photos said...

Wow, impressive ! Makes me wonder are these fences strong enough ?

Randy said...

Nice yellow earrings!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

TROUBLEMAKER!

LV said...

They both look like they could hold their own. I definitely do not want to be near either.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I guess big Angus can get away with those hideous yellow earrings.

Michelle said...

Fine specimens!

Stephanie Faris said...

We have a bunch of cows behind fences on our street. Our friend said when he was driving to our house, one had gotten out of the fence and was just wandering along the road. I don't know how that's possible, but it's a little scary. Hitting one of those would be even worse than hitting a deer!

Pauline Woodcock said...

Yep, my money would be on the Angus, too. The other guy is just a pretender. Funny!

Kate said...

Excellent photos. Either one. . . that's a lotta bull.

Grant Blakeney said...

Those look like some happy cows.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I don't know- it looks like a close call- I think the angus is always going to be the tougher one, but the other guy has some mean looking eyes!

Gert said...

This too funny! Little guy's lucky there were fences between them...lol

Michael Manning said...

These guys mean business! Quite a different set of photos. Hope your weekend is nice.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Your photos do justice to a pair of very handsome bulls! I like Brian King's comment :)

Gwen said...

hahaha-cute commentary!

Stephanie said...

Beautiful critters! Funny on the cometary.

Marie C said...

I like the way the smaller brown bull looks. A little different.

Primitive Stars said...

Now that's a lot of bull!!! Beautiful animals, Francine.

Linda said...

Heh heh! You caught a great expression on the third picture!

S. J. Qualls said...

Beautiful animals. I like the little guy, but in a tangle - he wouldn't have a chance.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

They look like trouble! I'd "steer" clear of them if I were you!! (sorry)

Paula said...

I would bet if they were put in the same pasture they would be friends. Maybe after a confrontation.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

You said what I was thinking! My money is on the Angus, too, and that's no bull! Sorry, I couldn't resist! lol!

bj said...

That Angus, with the way the branches of those trees behind him, looks like a devil bull. :)

Rajesh said...

Nice shots. They are ready of the fight.

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Beautiful photos of the bulls!
Happy weekend!

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

Nice bulls ! The black one is superb !

Paul said...

Looks to me like the brown bull with the horns is teasing the black bull about his yellow ear rings... :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Love the big Angus too and its lovely big eyes...
Happy Sunday to you.
Hugs,
Mariette

Rita said...

Crazy matters more than size. ;)

Made by KKann said...

Tøffe gutter.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

It isn't the size of the bull in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the bull that counts!

Lynne said...

Okay guys . . . what's your beef . . .

Jeevan said...

should be interesting watching them staring each other... first i was little confused with the fence though it isn’t a Thursday. nice capture

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; I have a vague memory that my grandparents used to have a cow more than half a century ago p:-)
The yellow tags on the Angus are quite an accent making it looks so cute♡♡♡

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Helma said...

Those brown bull or I find very beautiful to see. Fortunately there is a fence between the two bulls :-)

Jeanne said...

I see steak!

bailey-road.com said...

They're both beautiful.

Lynn said...

The stare down, I wonder who blinked first:@)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Whichever one your money's on, keep your distance and hope for GOOD fences.))

Chaitali Patel said...

Nice shots!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Beautiful shots and I would not want to be between them. But the brown guy has such gentle eyes.
Hugs, CM

Karen S. said...

Hehehehe! I heard the one bull to the bull say, What's that hanging from your ears boy?

Karen S. said...

Nah, they can't be ear----rings!

Ida said...

That was fun. I think they are both fine looking bulls. I rather think the smaller one is dare I say....cute.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Just love the sweet face and eyes on that brown fella!

edenhills said...

It's all fun and games as long as there's a fence between them. MJ used to love to bellow and throw dirt with the bull across the fence before my farm was my farm.

pattisjarrett said...

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to tangle with either one of them!
