Baby Limousin Calf Just Born

4 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

1 Comment

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 :)

Abandoned Dog Rescued by Baby Jesus

9 Comments

This is not my typical blog material , but had to share again ,even though it happen a few years ago.  There is so much Beauty in this!!! I think we all need a Pick me up 🙂
Merry Christmas ! 
A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night, someone came across this. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night. We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus’ lap from time to time. . No one mentioned that the dog breed is a “shepherd!”

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!!

Newfoundland Puppy Mix

4 Comments

Look at this little cutie! What a joy to capture ! This is a Newfoundland puppy mix. Some fun facts about the Breed.

The Newfoundland is a working dog. Newfoundlands can be black, brown, or black and white (Landseer). They were originally bred and used as a working dog for fishermen in the Dominion of Newfoundland (which is now part of Canada). They are known for their giant size, tremendous strength, calm dispositions, and loyalty. Newfoundland dogs excel at water rescue/lifesaving because of their muscular build, thick double coat, webbed feet, and innate swimming abilities.

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.

PROTECTING OUR HEREO’S
This was captured at Jefferson Barracks Park. This little baby doe was lying on my Dad’s Grave 🙂 It made me cry, but such a great felling because my Dad Love Deer!
