Baby Limousin Calf Just Born

5 Comments

I love cows. I especially love to see nature in action! Something being born is just Beauty!! Cindy is a friend of mine and owns a Ranch with my favorite little guys, Corgi’s … Who I am sure that help herd them to were they need to go. Corgis are also great dogs as I own 2 of them and they are for herding animals. Meet Darby who holds down the ranch 🙂 

The history of Limousin cattle may be as old as the European continent itself. Cattle found in cave drawings estimated to be 20,000 years old in the Lascaux Caves near Montignac, France have a striking resemblance to today’s Limousin.

Limousin originated in the West of the Massif Central between Central and South West France, a rather rainy region with harsh climatic conditions and poor granite soil. Consequently, the growing of field crops was very difficult at best and emphasis was placed on animal agriculture.

Limousin cattle highlight three important traits within their breed: excellent feed efficiency, adaptability and high carcass yield. The red or golden colored cattle are good foragers and in feedlots are well able to convert feed into mass. The carcass of the Limousin yields good cutability and it is commonly said that they are genetically “trimmed”. The meat is tender and fine fibered because of their low fat levels.

Thanks for the captures  Peggy Franz & Cindy Pearson @copyright

Come check out “Baby Birds” Adventure from Hatching to Flying the Coup

2 Comments

I was so lucky these last few weeks to observe and witness baby Carolina Wrens from eggs to hatching to flying the coup.They made a wonderful nest of feathers ,lichen and any other scraps they could find. The made this nest in my Beguiling Begonia hanging plant. In the summer months seems to be that every patch of woods is the rollings sound of the Carolina Wren.This shy bird is hard to see but, it delivers amazing sounds and decibel . This bird has rich cinnamon plumage,white eyebrow stripe, and a long, upward-cocked tail. Male and female Carolina Wrens build their nests together. One member of the pair may stay at the site while the other gathers material. The first nest can take a week or more to build, but later ones take shape in as few as 4 days. 

Please also visit the Bird Cam Video Link I have Provided .  Day 1 of  Discovery of eggs!

Day 1 of the capturing of the eggs. Now the waiting to begin for hatching. So Excited to witness this :)

Elk in the meadow
I captured this photo of this beautiful Elk while hiking. I had to hurry up take the picture and get the heck out of the area. It is rutting season and I wanted no part of those antlers.

Taken on my hike in a park. I was being very still and quiet in between the trees. I sat there for a long while wanting to capture a tender moment. This is as close as I got to come. They looked right at me.I just love my deer.

Hello everyone! Sorry for my absence but kinda of have been busy . I have not been out taking pictures, but I have been busy taking care of this little Miracle! She is a Chihuahua and Dachshund Mix

That is her name “MIRACLE” (Mira for short) This poor little girl was hit by a car and left in a ditch for about a week. That is what they estimated. She has a fracture pelvis . I am now her foster MOM! Trying to get her better. The Open Door Sanctuary was looking for an environment that was quiet so she could heal. She is  doing better. I see progress everyday. She is on IV Fluids almost everyday. She does not want to drink yet. She however eats like a little PIG. Have to fatten her up. She weighed 5.0 lbs when we got her. I take her back to the vet later this week. Prayers everyone for weight gain and good health to come!!

I wanted to share this story because I really think that she is a MIRACLE given to me by God. ‘ That is  right!! She saved my Life as well! When I was very down. We were suppose to meet:)Thanks to everyone who follows me!!!

If interested I can try to  post daily!!

This is when we brought her Home

Pardon my husband guys will be guys!!

THIS WAS ON TUESDAY 2/7/2011

THIS WAS TODAY 2/10/2012

She is getting a little better each day. I hope her progress continues:)

OK here  we go I was washing dishes , Yes I am  the dishwasher :) I look out my kitchen window and this is what I found.  This was no bird in my bird bath. It is my Corgi Puppy!!I had not had laughed that hard in a long time. I almost peed my self!:) Who knew? How did she get up there? She is only 20 lbs . 

She had been running with the other dogs along the fence line. When she does that she gets hot and looks for water. Well she forgot this is Missouri and the water is frozen. She was still going to lay there and cool off on the ice. This made my day and made me  smile so I hope it does for you as well!! 🙂
