These Critters I caught in the camera are residing in a gorgeous field on my drive to see my mare. I have always wanted to stop..and this time I did! They were close enough to get some good shots ...then the wonderful Black and White beauty came , ever so slowly over. He did
everthing very deliberate and slow....which later, I was very thankful for.
LICK!!!! That darned longhorn slimmed me..and I was so surprised that I jumped, he stood back, ever so slowly too...then decided he would go and taste something else for awhile and slowly turned to go...thank God it was slowly too....his long horns reached out , over the fence as he turned, and I almost caught in the face! It was so slow mo that I heard it touching the fence as it slid towards me.
All and all In think they are beautiful and amazing looking creatures...but I think I will stay on my side of the fence and read Rachel's accounts of his kind from my living room!
Too funny! They are big aren't they ... the cattle and the horns!ReplyDelete
Yikes. Close call with the horns. Nice captures, though.ReplyDelete
Wow how awesome !ReplyDelete
Love the photos,
Happy weekend .
My uncle used to raise prize winning longhorns when I was growing up. I loved them!ReplyDelete
I was picking up hay today at a dairy farm, with my truck parked in the center aisle. When standing alongside the truck I was just close enough to the ladies from them to reach out and lick my bum, which they did with abandon.ReplyDelete
Those horns are amazing. Funny that he came up to lick you. Sure glad he didn't catch you with one of the humongous horns!ReplyDelete
Been awhile since I've been in the Beavercreek area. Never know WHAT you'll encounter there! :-)ReplyDelete
How funny. I love your photo series of the cow. Good think you did not get impaled in slooooowwwww motion. ;)ReplyDelete
How's the canter working these days?
That is real close.ReplyDelete
Huge hons, looks so majestic.
Terrific photos of an amazing critter...ReplyDelete
However, I doubt I would have been so calm about getting so close to those horns... never again - right?
:O :O :O Those horns are HUGE!ReplyDelete
Longhorns just amaze me; your photos are gorgeous, almost 3-D with that color contrast. What a cute? steer and he liked you!ReplyDelete
Hey Kacy! Thanks for putting the link to my blog!ReplyDelete
About cows....dont scared! They aren't as terible as people think. They are very inquisitive creatures and actually pretty smart. The licking..its their way of seeing what you are. Yeah those horns are intimidating, and you must be careful of long horns, they get in the way and can hurt someone accidently. So care is given around ANY large animal, Poor cows they are really often misunderstood. I suggest anyone interested in cows, spend time observing...you learn somuch about behaivor and body language...THAT tells you what the cow is thinking and saying. Its not hard..just watching will tell so much. We often get cow-licked! LOL sometimes its out of revernce for the human they know, and sometimes that skin is just salty enough for a good lick! LOL dont be scared..but careful! You'll find they really are enjoyable creatures. I HATED cows until I was finally around them, now they have earned my respect and enjoyment every day!
LOL love the pictures and glad blogger is working better! Tomorrow DSL will be installed! FINALLY!
Very cute post!! I saw these in Texas while on a visit to the King Ranch! They are amazing and pretty too! Have a great Sunday!
You know I love me some black and white critters. And he was quite impressive with those horns....and fat, too! The longhorns we have out here are scrawnier and wiry, not chunky like that big dude. Must be that lush green pasture they've got to dine on.ReplyDelete
Great pictures, Kacykins! I'm glad you didn't get a horn in your eye. :)
WOW !! Look at the size of those horns !!ReplyDelete
They are beautiful looking creatures, though .. lovely markings..
Glad you only got slimed and not whopped by those horns..
Haha! Those pictures are so great, I thought that guy was fake! What an interesting looking critter.ReplyDelete
What a handsome cow! Those horns are a bit on the frightening side though....long and sharp!ReplyDelete
Hehehehe - what a great story. Those Longhorns ARE gorgeous!ReplyDelete
