Good Fences #69

Earlier this spring, I was checking the fence lines at the creek and saw the neighbor's cattle on their side (always a good thing.) I took some cell phone shots.
 The dogs came up alongside and startled the cow and calf for a moment.


 And off they went.
Here's the link-up!

Sweet!!! It's so green! I love the perspective of these images...the fence line the cute newborn...all of it.

Hi Tex, Love the cattle, especially the calf. The little one did look spooked. Great captures. I hope you have a great day, thanks for hosting.

Mildred said...

Cute as can be. Thanks so much for hosting!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex yes it is always a good thing when they are on their own side of the fence:) Hug B

Barbed-wire fence is not too friendly in my opinion but cattles are nice. Especially the smaller one :)

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Good Morning Theresa, Wonderful shots of the cattle. Darling little one. Thanks for hosting and have a happy day.

The cattle look so serene in the pasture. The calf hanging by the mother, all is well. And they didn't break through the fence!

Lynn said...

The calf looked a little wobbly getting up! Very pretty though:@)

Gayle said...

Like the pose in #4

Crissi said...

Very nice shots!
Nice day Crissi

lovely fence for farming

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Beautiful cattle, and a simple but functional fence! Hope you can find the fence in my post.

Brk Trt said...

Nice shots, protective mom

Kate said...

The barbed wire doesn't seem to stop their playful antics.

Kathy said...

A good looking pair.

photodoug said...

Fences are good for taking sides. Thanks for sharing.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

It's always a good deal when animals stay on their side of the fence. That little one is cute.

Giga said...

Well, the dogs ran not on the pasture and were not frightened even more cows and a calf. Greetings.

Julia said...

It always amazes me at how a new born calf has self preservation built in their instinct. At the least sign of danger, they are ready to run away fast. It has happened many time when we try to bring in a new calf that was born in the field. They are very hard to catch and we have to wear them down sometimes.

Great shots. Fences are a great at keeping the neighbour's cattle on their side.
Hugs,
JB

EG CameraGirl said...

So? They stay on their on side even though, for sure, the grass is greener on your side? ;)

DJan said...

I always enjoy seeing what's come out of your camera lately. Cute little calf. :-)

Sandra said...

i wish i hd cows close enough to visit.. i do love cows

messymimi said...

It is nice when the critters are on their own side of the fence. Perhaps knowing they will meet the dogs if they get through will encourage the cows to stay where they are.

Debbie said...

i love seeing the sweet, little one!! such a small fence doing such a big job!!!

magnoliasntea said...

Great cell shots. Cute, cute cows.

Rose said...

I like a barbed wire fence with a view like this!

I did not get to join...we came to Sarah's unexpectedly and didn't get anything prepared before we left. (Nothing wrong here...Lorelei just wanted us to come spend the night.)

Andy Wilson said...

Seeing the cattle on the ground, I thought of the joke, "What do you call cattle on the ground, Ground Beef!". I tell that joke to my grandkids :)

Przyjemne kadry:) Pozdrawiam i zapraszam do mnie: origamiiptaki.blogspot.com

Nancy Chan said...

Both the farms are separated by the creek and the barb wire fence? Pretty mama and calf photo.

Mary Kirkland said...

aww cute pictures.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

The fourth picture, of the cow and calf standing, is very nice. I'm sure you enjoy watching them a lot more when they're on their side of the fence.

Montanagirl said...

Great shots, Theresa. Good fences make good neighbors! (Sorry, no fence for me this week. I really do need to get out more and see if I can spot some new ones).

ladyfi said...

What cute shots.

LV said...

Your photos are great no matter how you take them. They turn out better on your phone than my camera. Most animals try to stay away from barb wire. That is all we had back when. Surely you are not taking care of your place by yourself. Have a good weekend.

cute photos of cows and fence

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

mooooooooooo

Margaret Adamson said...

Looks like you neighbour have lovely cattle. Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

"...E...", from VA, Beth said...

i enjoy your shots. i was driving with the hubby the other day in the country and saw this group of horses and thought for sure one horse was super huge compared to the others - nope ... it was just the way i was looking at the horse. it was a wild moment. i thought maybe it was a different kind of horse. nope. just my distance. kind of like your cows there. neat-o!! ( :

Stephanie said...

Wonderful shots of the pair and the barbed wire fencing.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Wish I had a fence picture to link up, but all I ever manage to take pictures of is food! Your pictures are gorgeous!

Marit Sønstebø said...

So cute they are! Cows looks so peaceful and charming :)

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Cute little calf!

I guess you're saying sometimes they don't stay on their side?

Michelle said...

What a cute pair!

Small City Scenes said...

Good old barbed wire. When we were kids we called it bob wire. Still do!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Great photos! The calf is so cute.

That's a good mom, keeping an out out for possible danger.

Great pics.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

You have such interesting neighbors.

Irma said...

Great photo's.
Cute little calf.
Best regards, Irma

Carola Bartz said...

I would love to have cows as neighbors. Beautiful animals and so calming. These two are lovely.

Karen S. said...

Fun indeed! They are my kind of neighbors to have too! Happy trails along the fence lines!

Jo said...

Oh, I love looking closely through the wire. And the calf and its mother. Thanks for linking me today. Greetings, Jo

don said...

I like these shots of the neighbor's cattle. I like the action of the calf gamboling near mom!

William Kendall said...

Cows can be easily startled!

Sally said...

You scared them with your camera! LOL

xoxo

Andrea Priebe said...

I have an appreciation for how hard it is to get up once you are on the ground. This little calf did herself proud ... and there is nothing like a good, none rusty, barbed wire fence. Cute captue, Theresa ...

Phil Slade said...

Look out for those mummy cows. Than be aggressive if they have calfs.

Sylvia K said...

Awwww!! Love the little ones!! Wonderful captures for the day as always!! Hope you have a great weekend, Theresa!!

Farm Girl said...

How very nice. A great looking pair.

S. J. Qualls said...

The calf looked startled in the one shot. Beautiful animals, of course, I am partial. The calf is such a gorgeous color!

Revrunner said...

Good to be alert, though. You can never tell about dogs. :-)

Frank said...

Cute calf. The creek and barbed wire should provide a deterrent to any interlopers.

Halcyon said...

A cute pair!

Tamago said...

Aw the cow and calf are so adorable! I love just watching them :-)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They are so sweet looking.....

Ida said...

I like how the cow/calf are framed between the barbed wire fencing in the first shot. - So glad that they weren't to disturbed by the dogs. Baby animals are always so cute and that little calf is no exception.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Beautiful cow and calf and nice to be on the other side of the creek and fence from Momma! Thanks for hosting!

sonia a. mascaro said...

The cow and calf are adorable!
Beautiful trees too! :)

Stephen Hayes said...

That cow and calf look wonderfully sleek and healthy.

jeannettestgermain said...

Your cell phone takes good pics:) A barbed wire fence I remember is common in Holland - a familiar sight!

Sweet momma and calf across the fence. love the pictures!
Have a great day.

Debby Ray said...

Behind the barbed wire...I love scenes like this!

Judy said...

I love seeing the mommas and babies. Once in a while we come up on a calf that had gotten out, not a good thing especially when your coming around a curve.

Our photos said...

Very nice !

Paula said...

Yes it is a good thing when they are on their side and even better when they are not out on the road.

Robin Lamb said...

T, everybody in their own space!

Barb said...

That's a husky little one!

Red said...

Sometimes cows can be easily spooked.

Cute capture of the startled calf. I haven't linked in a while and had difficulty doing so at first, because I forgot how. lol I got it though. Have a good weekend.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Cute mama and the baby!
Hope all is well.
Thanks for hosting GF!
Have a Wonderful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Randy said...

That little one is so cute.

pattisjarrett said...

Maybe the dog's presence will help keep them on their side of the fence. Nice looking cattle--and fence!

Maggid said...

amazing quality from that cell phone of yours. The apparatus might be good - but - I'm certain it's your ability that causes these pictures to come alive the way they do . . . really nice

Linda said...

Love that last shot! And I'm glad to see you're still posting.

Paul said...

Second to last picture of Mom and Calf came out real nice, both look very healthy.

Lynne said...

Is there an electric thing connected with a fence like that?
I would think that calf could slip right through . . .

Ratty said...

I always like seeing cows. I drive around here sometimes just to see the cows.

Lux G. said...

They're fun to watch. :)

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Whoa, I just had Mother and Child Reunion as one of my all-time favorites the other day.

Ms. A said...

You can see the startle in that second shot!

NatureFootstep said...

it is such a beautiful scene. Love it. And the fence.

Grantham Lynn said...

Thanks for the party. Have a good day. And, a fabulous weekend.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; The Mom cow and calf look really SWEET♡♡♡ I had two things in my mind from this post p-;) One is the way baby has the different color from Mom and the other is the big ones is not always the winner (haha, tiny me is doing my best). Silly me and thought(^^;)
Wishing you'll have a wonderful coming weekend.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
