On to greener pastures....

He's all bull.  He loves being with his girls.
He's handsome and he's a pain in the butt.
He has given us several beautiful calves.
And several of those calves we kept as breeding stock.
So we made the decision to sell him.
Sending him to the stockyards was not an option.
And  last Thursday I came home from a program at school and he was loaded on a trailer.
It was much more upsetting than I thought it would be.
He has went to a home where he will be with lots of cows and get to have lots of babies.
Now to up the heat checking, because its all or nothing this year.

Happy trails Nuggent!
A few of his babies...

Happy Monday Everyone!

Baby M..

I love that call asking me take pictures.  It's one of those things that I LOVE!
I love helping to save a memory. 
 And I love the look on someones face when you show them the finished product.
So when I got the call and was asked to take this beautiful little girls pictures, I was excited.

Have a great Thursday!

Boat Sport and Travel Show

This is a late post.  Back in March I took our two babes and a nephew to the Boat Sport and Travel Show.
We saw a lot of things as usual.  The kids found a few toys they think they need to run around on.
They climbed the rock wall.  We saw some interesting things to hang on  your wall.
And our boy who wants to be a DNR officer when he grows up decided he wants to have a dog as part of that job after seeing them work with them.  And then talking to one of the officers. 
There was a adult bear and a baby bear and lots of brochures for trips that you can go on.

we wish! so cool to see.

that's our girl, making sure everyone has good nails!

little man liked the stuffed black wolves.

mom don't i look good in this.

Easter Pictures

Easter was a wonderful day!
We spent the day with Mr. M's family and a few friends.
We went to a fort for a wonderful brunch.
And the kids loved dressing up.

Grandma and Pappy Dawson with the four grand kids.

They are growing up fast.
And they sure do clean up great.

Mr. JD, D, T and C...

Little Man needed sunglasses.

Mr. M and Little Miss.
She loves her daddy!

It's always good to get a picture when we get dressed up.

Mr Friendly..

Once a bottle baby, always a bottle baby.
This is our little guy that we bottle fed for two weeks.
He still comes up to see if you have anything for him.

Mr. M's brother JD got some attention when we were walking through calves,

Hello human momma, do you have anything for me.

And he tested out my fingers.
Sorry little guy nothing there.

That face.  How do you not let him come up to you?
They are are so sweet and fuzzy.

Happy Monday!

Love Me Some Chickens..

What is it about chickens that is so interesting? 
 They are such a creature of habit.  Up by the light of day and in by the sunset.
  And they are just happy to have fresh water, food and some ground to scratch to get some bugs. 
They best thing is that an animal so small gives such tasty food.
We love EGGS.   

Have a great Wednesday!

This and that

A few weeks ago I needed to have a break from the house.
  And I didn't feel like starting a book, so I picked up my camera. 
 I just started walking around and snapping pictures of this or that.
And these are few that I liked.

Have a great Tuesday!

hello remember us!

Hi!  We are still here.
  We have been going through the paces of trying to get many things done in a short amount of time.
  I have been taking lots of pictures.  I went to the Hoosier Horse Fair for 2 days. 
 I took photos at an open cattle show. 
 Theres lots of running the kids to after school activities since there is only less than a month of school left.  We are preparing to start breeding the cattle for next year. 
 And all the babies are growing quickly. 
 The kids will be back to the show ring soon with county fair, Simmental junior nationals, state fair and NAILE.

I have been keeping up with your posts. 
 And hopefully in the next week i will get back to posting a few days a week. 
 Have a great week!
