Farm critters and a dog

On Thursday - a very hot day, I took Skabby out for his walk. When we got to the point where we turn around (after he has a dip in the small dam), he stopped dead in his tracks! The pond was filled with cows who were cooling down their legs and bodies as well!

 Uh-oh! The dam was filled with cows! 
 Mum, I'm nervous! And yet dying to cool off as well! 
 Skabby plodged in the shallows all the while keeping an eye on the cows...
 ...who were keeping an eye on him too! 
 Back along the farm road we came across a black cow with her newborn black calf. She, too, kept an eye on Skabby as we approached
The calf goes in for a drink

I'm a bit late - the next post shows why...

Happy Sunday to you all! 


  1. Hello, Cute shots of Skabby on the walk and the cattle. I am sure he really wanted a swim, he is well behaved. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post.Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week !

  2. I love dogs and cows and this makes me happy. so glad he doesn't chase them and that they could share the dam. Skabby looks fantastic. I have missed seeing him... I also love milk, but have developed lactose intolerance in my old age. I buy the lactaid but it cost a lot more

    1. I developed lactose intolerance in my early 40s. I can eat cheese till the cows come home (ha) with nary a problem, but woe betide me if I drink milk. I've come to the point where I don't like to drink dairy milk anymore, but I do like to use it in recipes such as pudding. I take the Lactaid pills and they help.

  3. That looks like a refreshing afternoon at the water hole. :-)

  4. And of course the cows would keep an eye on him.
