Til the Cows Come Home

Recently, was clearing out old photos and came across some of interest - well at least of interest to me, as it brought back lots of memories. These are the Polled Hereford cattle my father in law raised years ago. I watched many a calf being born.... and the calf in the grass is only an hour old.

The young bull in the second photo was an Ohio State Fair champion and was purchased by my family to bring new blood into the herd. He was a very energetic fellow, and he ended up hurting "his tool" while servicing the ladies and ended up with a blood clot that killed him. Too bad... he was very expensive!

Maybe I will use some of these shots for new paintings....
