I decided to let my cattle graze around the houses as a last nice snack before fall hits. Unfortunately I was in the process of repairing my gate to the garden area and so naturally this is where I found them this morning. They were enjoying my apples and doing a touch-up job on my mowing of the lawn.
These animals are so gentle they almost seem to belong in my back-yard.
Scottie is owned by the Kindreds and will be harvested this fall for beef.
Traeger is my newest calf who will go to the butcher next fall.
Dunnis and Ernie are my bulls and are both beautiful Scottish Highlander specimens.
Taffy is the mother of all but Dunnis and Scottie and I am hoping next spring she will give me some females to help us breed them faster.
I have no plans to make the herd larger than about 10 animals. They serve to help keep the forest clean, to fertilize my soil, to provide me food, and most of all, to provide my guests entertainment and a sense of peace.
