I hope you like snowy cow photos because this year has been exceptional for them.
- We've had lots of snow...more than we've had in 10 years, I'd say.
- We have cows.
I've also learned that some cows know how to stay clean and others are first to find the mud.
Here's cow #1, which Greg has always described as "She's pretty but she's crazy." That also characterized G's prior 2 girlfriends before me, so I would say he knows what he's talking about.
Now, she's all gussied up in her winter coat and she couldn't be more gorgeous. But she's still crazy, so you might want to stay away.
I took this photo to show the difference between a cow with calf and without calf. Above, you see a skinny cow.
Below, you see a fat cow.
Notice the width difference. It's quite humorous, actually.
A cut little calf who somehow got mud on his face.
Getting tired in the sun.
She's awake now....waiting for food.
Just a bit disheveled.
Compare her to #1. Now do you see why Greg says she's pretty?
Wondering when I'm going to stop taking photos and feed them.
I guess they got tired of waiting and went back to the hay.
which is after all, how they stay warm in the winter.
I used the PW's tutorial on these photos to really make the cows pop in the snow. She used it with horses, but all I had to work with was cows. :)
