Rural Thursday Blog Hop: This Old Cow

This Old Cow...Ah, hem...Gal
Is one of our oldest and my hubby's favorite.

About her, he says, "She's an ugly old thing, but she gives me the prettiest calves."

I hope she takes that as a compliment!

I love her, but I love all the young ones and the old ones.  The poor middle aged cows, well, for me they just need to get a little older and prove themselves more.  There's nothing better than an old cow who knows the ropes, makes pretty calves and behaves herself each year on the range.  I just want to hug 'em!

Please join us at the Rural Thursday Blog Hop and tell us a little about your rural life.


  1. Aww, I don't think she's ugly at all. She has a sweet face.

  2. She's fine looking cow and it sounds like a fine mama too. What more could be asked of a cow? Love your photo and the story you told about your cow.

  3. I'm trying to decide from your photo what breed combo Old Mama is! Love your blog title, too!

  4. A well-behaved cow is truly a treasure and if she has pretty calves, well that is just icing on the cake! :)

  5. The lesson about the "old cows" transfers quite well to humans, as well! Lol. Nothing like aging gracefully....
