#Cee’s B &W Challenge: Pets and Farm Animals

I posted a picture for Bushboy’s Last Day challenge. Here is the same picture cropped, framed, and unsaturated for Cee Neuner’s Black and White Challenge. I’m surprised it is a bit pixilated looking.

Tulare County, especially where we live in Elderwood, CA primarily derives income from agriculture. On my walks, I encounter a plethora of farm animals. This black and white dude is one of my favorites.

This next BIG guy has plenty to say. He’s a LOT of bull. He must be reacting to election season.

In our neighborhood we do not have walking paths, but we have roads with little traffic or houses. One of the problems we had living in the country has been loose dogs that have killed our kittens. Most dog owners keep their dogs under control. These dog owners get a thumbs up from me.

These goats live down the road from us. They romp in the slope down to Cottonwood Creek that runs behind our house about two weeks out of the year.

You can’t have a farm without at least one of these stubborn “animules.”

Let’s take one last look at our farm animals and pets from Elderwood, California.

Vince and I just listed our home and plan to move to Prescott, AZ in the near future. We hope that someone will love it here as much as we have.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is always great. This one is right up my alley, so to speak.

A factoid: Do you see how they have paved a road across the lawn?  Cows and Native American foot traffic created Highway 99 North and South .

Everyone should have a friendly bull or two in their front yard. One of the little guys got out one day, and wandered over to our yard. We had just finished sodding the yard, and it was still mushy. Hubby complained about his footprints in which we could have buried our cats without leaving a mound. By the way, these ARE the happy cows – no bulls – you read about from California .

happy cows?
Move over Bessie. I had that bin first.

 

The cows live here.  I say there’s some sex discrimination going on in this business. Cows do all the work, and have less luxurious living quarters. All the bulls have to do is play rodeo games, eat and chew the cud all day.
