Saturday’s Critters – Cows, Horses, and Ducks

This newborn calf is walking around the same day as it was born. On a ranch in western Oklahoma owned by my wife’s family.

And this is son Logan with kitten Lizzy. Lizzy is affectionate, but she doesn’t like to be held, unless I am holding her, and even then I get about 30 seconds before her “I’ve had enough” signals to let her go.

I went on a bike ride last week on a suburban freeway trail and saw this horse.

We got a duck pair hanging out in the afternoon in our front yard. Heather fed them once and and now they come back every day, and if we don’t feed them, they head to the garage. Ducks are such moochers. We have another pair of male ducks that also show up. We call them the gay ducks, (no offense, seriously) and they get demanding about getting fed also.

    Good morning Alan. It’s amazing isn’t it that the calf stood up and walked the same day it was born? I got to watched that impressive process once on our farm.

    The image of the horse is very nicely done. Our cocker spaniel, Lucy is a lot like Lizzy. She is a snuggler but not a cuddler. She will lay in my lap for an hour, but if I try to hold her, that will last a minute or less.
