Photography

10 on 10 – June 2015

It’s the 10th! Time to share 10 photos with you and my photography circle group. This time I found the memory card (hooray – it was still plugged into laptop, whoops) and used the proper camera. It was a lovely sunny day on the farm but windy as. I thought I’d get up close and check out some new additions. So less talk more pictures…

10 on 10 June 2015 with You Had Us At Hello

The glam life of a Farmer’s Wife! I probably should of been helping unload all this feed but I was busy playing paparazzi to the cows.

 

See all those cute little calves? Sooo cute! There was one that born that very morning, bit shy for the camera though, fair enough, and we’ve since had some more. Think we’ve got 40 calves all up. Due to the lack of rain (do I sound like a Farmer?) the cows need to be fed everyday. So we’ll be doing rain dances before long so feed can grow and so can the precious crops just sewn.

Thanks for having a looksy into a typical day on the farm. Be sure to jump on the photo circle loop and check out my Bloggy friend Jess from A little part of the world’s beautiful photos. Give some love in the comments and follow the circle back to me. Have fun!

    JoJo…. these pictures are beautiful! I want to come and play with the cows too! The ones where the bubba calf are suckling so special and I can totally relate as I am still feeding my nearly two-year-old and I feel like that Mama cow… that look on her face…. I have it too ๐Ÿ˜‰ JT xo

      The calves are super cute and all play together. It must be weird they all have the same father – hahaha! I fed my youngest til he was 19 Months. It took me awhile to wean him off. In the end I coaxed him with Choc milk in a sipper cup. I then diluted it back to cows milk. I miss my bigger boobs. They shrunk right back to usual size. Buggar! Lol! xx

    Too cute! I grew up with cattle and calving time was such fun. I can relate to feeding out too! Nice to see you in the picture too x

      Thanks Ellen. Farm memories are the best growing up. My Kiwi Uncles have so many funny stories growing up on the farm and all the trouble they got up to. Crack up! I’m a little reluctant to get my boys into quad bikes – the wild gene has passed onto them I reckon ๐Ÿ™‚ normal bikes are enough for my heart to handle. I tried to get closer to cows for my selfie but they weren’t into. Lol! x

    Oh I love these photos! We live in the country too – but not on a farm – so it’s very cool to see these photos!!!

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 4:13 pm

      I love living in the country, don’t you Lucy? And rainy weather always makes me want to bake. It did on my families farm in NZ too. I mostly made Chocolate Caramel slice – so yummy!! I bet it’s pretty where you live x

    I’m looking at that horizon – it seems to go on forever. I’m a city gal but do appreciate the wide open space of the country. It sure looked like you had fun playing paparazzi to the cows! x

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 4:10 pm

      It was fun thanks Steph. I love getting out to that particular paddock, views for miles ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    I love the cow shots, priceless! xx

      We have total different backyards hey! But I would like a spa in mine like your one – a pet rabbit is a pretty cute addition too xx

    Love a little look into farmer’s wife life! We have heaps of rain here, shall I send some your way?! Cracking pics love! Bravo! xx

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 4:03 pm

      Oh please send it this way Sam, rain makes for a happy Farmer. I must remember to take more farmer pics. I think I need your camera to improve the shots, looking into!! X

    God I love cows. They are so photogenic. Great shots Jo, it makes me want to come and visit your farm! xxxx

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 4:00 pm

      You can come visit anytime lovely! I’ll whip up some scones in no time. In fact, I might make done now, yum! x

    Cows! I just love them and their huge, soft eyes. My great uncle sold all of his herd a few years ago, and I just hate it because I loved driving down to his house through the pasture, seeing the cows just roaming free.

    That calf is so adorable! I wonder if we can put a cow on the acre that comes with the house we’re buying…I’m betting our neighbors probably wouldn’t appreciate it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      A pet cow would be a great lawn mower Jen and manure is great for the garden, it’s a win win Jen xx

    Oh you make me want to go live on a farm!! Those cows are too cute! Only I would need to keep them all as pets forever! Great photos!!

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      Farms are fun Jacinta. I especially love this time of year with all the farm babies. We have a few pet lambs as their mothers didn’t survive birth but no baby calves. All going strong with their Mums xx

  • Reply Sasha @ From the Left Field June 10, 2015 at 8:10 pm

    Awww baby calves! How cool that your boys grow up with such a lifestyle! x

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:51 pm

      The baby calves are so cute. We haven’t named any yet as Spider-Man still gets requested for every farm baby. A few years ago we had a Chocolate and last year we had an Elsa xx won’t be long til they’re trained to be little farmers I bet!

    I loved these and I love farm animals. I’ve been known to stop on the side of a road to photograph cows on more than one occasion. Your girls are lovely and so photogenic. Lol. Good luck with the rain too!

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      Thanks Diana! I don’t blame you for stopping. They have such wonderful big eyes and faces. I remember getting pictures next to sheep on a roadside in NZ years ago, thinking how cute. Now I wake up and they’re eating grass outside my bedroom window. Haha! Wouldn’t of predicted that! No rain yet, hoping it comes soon x

  • Reply peregrinationgourmande June 10, 2015 at 10:35 pm

    your countryside seems so wide and large and huge … You made me travel! The cows are such friendly faces! You captured them well! Maybe you should try to sell your pics to some people magazine as a good paparazzi! haha xxcathy

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      Haha! Practice my paparazzi skills aye. I do enjoy all the wide open spaces on the farm, I don’t think I could settle in the city again. Everyone’s too close!! I think I like the cows better than sheep. Sheep are frustrating at times, they bring out all the swear words – ask ant farmer, I’m sure they’ll agree xx

  • Reply Tash @ Gift Grapevine June 10, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    The look on that cow’s face in the 4th photo while she is feeding her calf kinda screams “what are YOU looking at?!”. Lovely pics Jo – the sunshine and blue skies this week are just perfect xx

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:41 pm

      Thanks Tash! I was telling Shan my pics this month are boring cows, she reminded me they aren’t boring at all. Not everyone sees cows everyday! Haha! So so true. They are lovely girls. I milked a few cows with my NZ family and really enjoyed it. These are for beef dinners though I’m afraid xx yuuuuuuuum!

    Awesome shots Jo! Farming is hard but rewarding work isn’t it? (correct me if im wrong) Good luck with those rain dances ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:38 pm

      You nailed it there Erik – definitely hard work but rewarding. Farmer works sooo much. Craving a day off with, booked one off for next week ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Reply Maxabella June 11, 2015 at 10:28 am

    These are awesome, Jo. I love that you were papping the cattle instead of helping with them .That’s the blogger in you taking over the farmer!! x

    • Reply Jo June 12, 2015 at 3:36 pm

      Haha! It must be! The cows didn’t know what the hell was going on!! Hehe xx
