Here are some pictures of my farm, and some of my animals. Feel free to post opinions.
The first picture is us clearing the overgrown pastures when we moved into the farm


This is my Rocky Mountain Gelding


View from the farm


Bullet-one of my steers. Just over a year old.


Bullet & Pal (a jersey steer for a client). Pal is almost 2 i guess.


mac a bucket fed jersey steer. about 4-5 months old.


Cheese a bottle fed jersey steer. about 4 weeks older than mac we are guessing


Snowflake- one of my banty hens


Girrlie (simmental heifer) with jewel (4 month old "adopted" calf)


More of Jewel

Great pics and beautiful, healthy looking animals. My husband bought 2 yellow/orange white face heifers at the sale last week. They are probably a bit older than yours. We have another one that's about 2 now...she had a beautiful calf. It was her first and she had it with no problem at all.

Thanks for sharing the pics...love 'em!

we are done clearing pasture. THANK GOD lol. we were over run with rose bushes, and some stupid weed that grows in vermont with beautiful purple flowers but has these little prickly things on it that makes you itch like crazy. we had 3 large pastures that were compleatly over run (some you couldnt even walk through) we bulldozed everything up, spread some new top soil, fertalized and planted pasture mix, and fenced everything in. Now we are adding on to our barn so the cows dont have to use the tractor trailer truck box as shelter. I dont have pics of the finished pastures, but ill try to get some this spring. The farm we are at is about 125 acres, and wasnt used as a farm in probably 15 years and some of the pastures its been well over 20 years.

Nice pics, you have some nice scenery! You must have had to do quite a bit of work to get that pasture cleared out! Nice animals-they are all fluffy for winter like mine! I don't really care for horses but yours is nice looking!

my boyfriend hates horses lol, but he really likes mine. He is kinda like a large dog. We let him out of the pasture to graze in the spring, and i call him and he comes back. He is respectful of your place and isnt a pain in the ass like a lot of horses. He is also 100% trustworthy and not spooky. I can shoot of his back, ride around the tractors and 4wheelers, round up the cows (but he can live with them and not chase them), put a 90 year old woman on him, or go barrel racing, and i can tell you how he will react to about anything. he used to be an amish horse so i was told, but im not really sure. he isnt broke down like most of them. he really is not replacable because of his saneness. He is the reason we started the farm. I got him first and then got a cow for a companion and it all spread from that.

oh i dont even think about the rock walls, we have them everywhere around here. ill get more pics of some in the spring when they are not covered by snow.

as for the truck, lol, you guys will LOVE this one. My bf dad drives tractor trailer truck and that is how we got the trailer (250 bucks!), we brought it to the barn, but it was muddy at the time and couldnt put it in place, so about a week later when everything froze up my friend took his old ford truck and backed it under the trailer, lowered the trailer on the bed and backed it into position. he was going to junk the truck anyways, so it worked out great.

Beautiful country indeed! We visited Burlington a few years ago.. drove all over the state, and it's BEAUTIFUL! Went to Stowe.. a big skiing area, and it was incredible. Lots of dairys, which surprised me. I have to tell you, the gas stations are the nicest I've ever seen in my life! Routinely they have a huge selection of coffees (Green Mountain) and the restrooms are spotless. If you didn't get any snow there, I'd think about moving! :cowboy:

That looks and sounds like something that only happens in the South. :lol2:
