I am SO excited!!! 🙂
New life arrived on the farm today. No, no new calf – yet. We’re still waiting for that happy event to take place (not patiently, I might add…)
Something equally big happened – our first bull arrived!!!! (Which is also the reason we named him Adam – first man created, father of all mankind; our Adam – first bull on our farm, hopefully forefather of many!)
I contacted a very big stud farmer a month ago, and I went to see what his farm is all about. We are interested in a certain breed of cattle, namely Huguenot, which was specifically bred for the area we live in. I saw The Bull there that day, and we went and fetched him today.
Here is a picture of Adam when I fell in love with him on the farm he was born on. He is a three year old Huguenot bull, with (we believe/hope) huge genetic potential to give us lots of gorgeous calves.
Adam was understandably a bit skittish after he arrived, and he didn’t want to pose for pictures. I tried to get a stunning picture of this beautiful creature in his new environment, but these next two photographs were all I could get out of him. Together with the bad light, I couldn’t get any good shots, but despite that, don’t you agree that he is a gorgeous animal?
Oh, and after we went back later to see if he settled in, I turned around to get back into the car, and saw this…
Once again, I’m totally disappointed in my full moon photograph, but I had to try, and the colours work, even if the moon doesn’t. ( I think…)
Until we chat again, be blessed. I know I am. 🙂
***PS. How weird and unpredictable is life…I grew up in a city, I’ve always been a total city mouse, and here I am, totally excited and thrilled about our new bull!!!
