New Heifers and a Spaghetti Dinner to Celebrate!

18 Apr

This week we brought home several new heifers and you’ll also see some cows with their babies mixed in! What a beautiful day to be out with the cattle! They are LOVING the lush grass and sunshine!

#217’s model pose…”look into my eyes…”

Sweet momma and her baby…

“Hey Mom, what’s over there?” – Grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side! (Even if it’s really not…)

Best friends.

Don’t mind me…just chowin’ down! I like this heifer’s hairdo! Maybe Mr.Britt could give her a pink bow for that! …ha ha

After riding around with Mr.Britt checking cattle we came home ready for supper! I whipped up one of his favorites!

Karla’s Spaghetti! *Recipe below

Recognize the Longaberger placemats, Gwynn??  They are perfect with my dishes!

This is an easy comfort food in our house…enjoy!

    great photos! I love how the mamas really do look different– before having cows I hadn’t had the opportunity to look closely enough to see their individuality. some of ours have a little curliness to the fur on top of their head! sweet babies too! 🙂
