I thought I would pop here on the blog today and share with you guys our new cows here on White Cottage Farm. I’ve been sharing them on My Instagram lately so I figured I would explain why they have come to our farm. Its kind of a funny story. A while back someone came to us and asked if they could bring cows to our fields… we of course said sure because we knew they would eat our overgrown pastures down. Months passed and we never saw them so we didn’t think much about it. One Sunday afternoon after we had gone to church and eaten lunch Jose went outside & came back in a few minutes later & told me he had a surprise for me… the cows were here & had been all day & we never noticed. We are obviously not very observant. We had even had coffee looking over the field that morning and never saw them. My theory is that they were hiding behind the barn, but anyways, our farm has cows now. Cow visitors of some sort….
Layla is the black & white one & Lenny is the brown & white one. Layla is the shy one. Well, they are both shy, but she is the most shy & always hides behind Lenny. Yes, I named them. I was told that was a bad idea, but I couldn’t help it. I call them our foster cows.. they are here living their best life for a while & we are so thankful to have them bring new life to our farm. They are such beautiful creatures & truly make our farm look like a painting at times. It has also been a great learning experience to see if we want to buy cows for our farm one day. & as you can tell if you follow me on Instagram I am addicted to taking photos of them & going out to the pasture and talking to them. They are not so fond of me yet, but I’m determined.
Layla & Lenny… always together & always precious. & never safe from me & my iPhone. I just can’t get enough of them. There was also a 28 year old horse dropped off at WCF, but I’ll share more about him later. We have so much love to give that we love everything and anything that ends up on this little farm of ours no matter how long they are here for. We will be sharing more of our farm & farm life over on our farm blog [HERE], but I always want to keep you guys updated here on my main blog about the important [& super fun] farm things going on. I hope you guys enjoyed meeting Lenny & Layla today & be sure to follow me on Facebook & Instagram for more behind the scenes on the farm. Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by the blog today & for always following our journey no matter what we are doing. xx
