Our Momma Cows

Friendly

100_3527Friendly is another one of our Herefords. She holds a special place in our hearts because she was such a fun calf. We got a German Shepard puppy about the same time Friendly was born and they would play together. It was really fun to watch and something we may never see again.

 

Bunny Hop

Bunny HopBunny Hop is our very special Missouri Select American Simmental. Although she isn’t ideal for grass finishing, I bought her because I knew Jenn would fall in love with her…and it was love at first sight. Bunny is like having an overgrown dog, she is so gentle and loving and intuitive about Jenn’s disability. Sometimes Jenn has trouble griping treats and/or letting go of them, this makes it tricky for her to feed most of the cows who knock the treats out of her hands with their tongue. However, Bunny Hop gently and patiently takes the treats with her lips, no tongue and no teeth :)

In the picture, Jenn is kissing Bunny Hop’s nose. Some of our close friends told her she couldn’t kiss a cow, so here’s the proof! Some of my farmer friends and myself like to give Jenn a hard time because Bunny is scruffy and not a good body type for grass, but she’s a favorite of all our non farming visitors.

Kasey

KaseyKasey is one of our wonderfully huge Herefords.  Her original ear tag was #9, which is how she got her name.  And her baby (in the picture) is a little girl named Kahne.  If you’re a NASCAR fan you will understand :)  I thought this was a rather unique pose for her World Wide Web debut.

Viper

ViperViper is a treat monster!  If she suspects we have the treat bucket with us, she’ll be one of the first to run over and the last to walk away.  She will also follow us around from stop to stopp if we have treats.  Viper is not our most polite eater either, she’ll slime your entire hand when you feed her.  But you just have to love her enthusiasm!

Crazier

100_1777Crazier is a black white face who comes from a long line of great cows we’ve raised.  Until recently the  cows were numbered, but when Jenn took interest in the farm all the mommas got names.  Crazier got her name simply because her mom’s name is Crazy…she has two sisters named Craziest and Loco.  She’s a sweet little girl that loves to take treats straight from our hands, which is what she’s waiting for in this picture. Crazier recently had her first baby…it’s a boy!
