The eye of River


Yesterday was so hot even the animals were running for the shade of the trees to get out of the heat. Late in the afternoon I usually take the Terrorist for a walk when I'm checking the fences and the water. Some of the Kahikatea trees have started to form berries on the tips of their branches to I had taken the camera down to get a couple of shots. River was right by the fence so just for fun I took a close up image of her eye. It turned out really great right down to the reflection of the trees and me taking the photo. The Terrorist though didn't like those moo things she ran away and back up to the house. Trouble is she is a moo thing too but thinks she should be with the hooman that gives her a bottle still. Weaning has been slow. Once the bull goes then the Terrorist will have to go into the paddock with those moo things she doesn't like. I'll be having lots of sleepless nights when she does...groan.

  2. Oh she's singing my favourite song. I LOVE that song! Used to sing it heaps whenever my sister and I used to take our horses down to Muriwai Beach bareback with western bridles on and go for gallop. Memories memories memories. If I did that now my horses would most likely drop dead. Too old for that. Yes the Moo things aren't popular with The Terrorist. Moo things! LOL

  6. Oh yes you're not kidding. Greedy little Terrorist doesn't want to be weaned. We'll have to send the bull off first before she goes out with the heifers.
