The good news!
The farm has its first official livestock.
(Unless you count the cats.)

And the bad news?
My Dad said we will be eating him at our 2013 Memorial Day Picnic.
Oh.
I am petitioning for him to be a forever pet.
I proposed we walk him and play with him and pretend he is a dog.

My Dad proposed that I be sent to a mental institution.

This is my favorite picture from last week.
Technically terrible.
I love it.
What can I say?
I am flawed.

Happy weekend good buddy.
Happy weekend.

That's the best lesson I ever had on eating a hot dog. I want one now!
I think Kaishon is a great camera holder too. :)

Christina said...

Flawed? I think not! The photo is precious...capturing real life moments that say so much...it is a gift you have. Really worth 1000 words. :)

Gigi said...

Name that calf immediately. You can't eat something that has a name! He's so cute.

Tamar SB said...

Poor cow! One of the reasons I am a life long (never had meat) vegetarians! Animals are cute and then...well... Happy weekend!

Rachel @ A Cupcake for Moose said...

I adore calves! Yet, I also enjoy a good cheeseburger. I try not to make the association or I'd cry. :)

The last photo is my favorite, too. I love the movement, the light and the sweetness of her pose. In my eyes, it's technically wonderful! :)

Ami said...

If I had to procure my own food, I would not eat meat.

And I love the last photo, too.
Actually, I love all of them. Always.

Pumpkin Delight (Kimberly) said...

Gah! That poor cute baby. They say it's best not name them. Naming them makes it harder. I agree with Ami. Wouldn't touch it if I had to meet them first. Good luck.

tiarastantrums said...

I agree - save him!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dominique@Dominique's Desk said...

Great shots.. and really poor cow.. can't it remain as a pet?

Nancy said...

That's one big hot dog! But she's got the technique down. :)

Unfortunately, farms have to pay for themselves if they are to survive... that's lesson one, my dear. :) Cute little calf, though.

Formerly known as Frau said...

I see lots of pictures of your new cow/dog in the future....love your flawed picture it's perfect! Have a wonderful weekend!

Liz said...

Great images! Thanks for visiting my blog. The cow shot is great.

Farmgirl Paints said...

technical is highly overrated. poor little cow. my mom was traumatized when her dad fed her her pet cow as a child. didn't tell her 'til after. how awful is that?!

Katherine said...

gorgeous photos as always and great lesson on how to eat a hot dog..Lol

Anita Johnson said...

That is why we don't have a farm. It would become Noah's Ark. Nice photos.

Jen Price said...

That would be hard to eat such a cute looking face!

The Artful Diva said...

Your post is hilarious. I enjoyed a good laugh!

Dina Lettre said...

Oh no! He's soooo cute. I sayb y'all have Subway foot-longs instead. :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are flawed...and in a great way. Love that photo.
Um, yes, he should be a pet. LOOK at his eyes...so sweet and sincere.
See...can't we all just live on Subway? I say yes.
xo

jlo said...

If I really thought about it...I would eat nothing! Make that calf a pet immediately!
On another note...How's Kaish doing with the friends?? I hope better!

Farm living does have its tough sides, doesn't it. But what cute photos! :) Thanks for a lovely visit.

StitchinByTheLake said...

If that picture is flawed I'd love to be flawed right along with you. :). Those are wonderful pictures and I laughed to see the little one with her Subway Sandwich. Precious! Blessings, Marlene

Deanna said...

How fun these shots eating the hot dog. Love all your images, each one so thoughtful. How could you possibly eat that sweet faced calf??

Freeze Frame said...

I love all your pictures, as usual. The Subway ones make me so hungry. :) And there is something so beautiful about the house with the candles in the windows. :) And OH MY WORD, I definitely think the cute cow should be a pet. :)

Christine said...

Oh your comment about the mental institution just cracked me up, thanks for the laugh! It would be sad but I would love to have fresh, grass fed beef to eat.

Patti said...

When I lived on the farm they had to load the cattle for slaughter when I was away at work - couldn't STAND that part of farm life!
Nice shots...

MG Atwood said...

Love the series of hot dog eating! Have a great week. that calf face is too adorable.

photowannabe said...

Love the technically "flawed" photo.
Her personality just shines through.
I guess I wouldn't make a good farmer. Animals that seem to be pets would be hard to have for dinner.
I understand it and know that's the way it is but glad I don't have to get my heart involved.

Brooke said...

AHHH - you just can't eat that sweet little guy. I mean, I know, we do it all the time. But it's hard to fathom it when he's a pet first! ;D Lovely shots!!!!!

Buckeroomama said...

You have the quirkiest posts! :)

How to eat a hotdog... indeed!

Casey said...

Great photos... cute little cow!! I think I'd have a hard time on a farm.

Ashley Sisk said...

So many gorgeous faces in this post - really like the lighting in your last shot.

Karen said...

You are soooo good at capturing faces! My favorite photo is also your last one. I guess we are all flawed. That's what makes life so interesting!

Holly from 300 Pounds Down said...

Love the pics!!! And now I want a subway sandwich!!

Ida said...

Such a sweet series. The Footlong shots are so adorable.
Oh my that little calf is a cutie. I'd rather not think about what happens after they grow up.

Sarah Halstead said...

Love them all. The first few are so adorable! Beautiful.

dailyvisualinspiration said...

Such gorgeous set! The black and white is my absolute favorite, such sensitivity in that one!

Maddy said...

Congrats on the new addition to the farm! ButI do second the motion of him becoming a forever pet :) Sounds like a fantastic idea, Sorry Mr. Leatherman!

mindy said...

I just did a photo shoot with a family who owns a gazillion animals. Their 8 year old daughter took me to meet their cow and proudly told me his name was "Burger" and they'd be eating him next year. I took a photo of Burger in rememberence :)

Ana Eugénio said...

Hi sweetie :) I would want him to be a pet too. he is so adorable. thank you for your visit on my b'day. loved the good surprise. wishing you a beautiful week. xxo

Stefanie said...

Oh goodness, that is one adorable calf! I hope your dad softens and he gets to stay a pet :)
