Or more to the point, Adam among the cows!
Yip. We got the results back from the vet today, and all our cows are healthy with no hidden illnesses, so, Adam can do his thing, and make us (hopefully!!!!) lots of healthy little calves.
I wish I took a video of the moment he realized the gate was open and he was free to go through to all the tempting young heifers!! It was hilarious!!! He skipped – yes, actually skipped through the gate, bellowing like a maniac, and then he galloped full steam down the road to where the cows and heifers were grazing. Oh, people, you should have seen that!!!
Since I wasn’t ready with the camera to record Adam’s antics, I’ll have to use some totally unrelated pictures for something visual in my post.
On my very hectic Friday last week, I was busy clearing some scrub from around the area where the new water crib was going to go, when I noticed the prettiest little creeper. It had insinuated itself between grass stalks, and around a nasty prickly weed and up a tree trunk. What amazed me, was the daintiness of the plant. It has pretty curly leaves, beautiful bright coloured little fruits, and sweet little flowers – all on one plant!
The wind was blowing the whole afternoon, so I couldn’t use my macros setting. Some of the pictures needed that, as they are not as clear and focused as they should probably be, but I was adamant – I wanted some pictures of this delightful little veld plant.
The first thing I noticed as I was hacking away at the scrubby stuff, was this gorgeous orange fruit.
I then followed the tendrils and tentacles of the creeper, and I found the rest of the charming plant.
Well, another full and exciting day on and around the farm, and lots more to do this coming week.
Until next time, be blessed!!
