Friday Farm Favorites

Gloucestershire, England or the Cotswolds is such an enchanting place.  We love its history, stunning gardens, art galleries, natural beauty, and farmland.  My favorite thing is waking up to the sound of lambs baahing, roosters crowing, and wood pigeons cooing.

Every morning and evening, Farmguy and I walk around the little village where our cottage is located.  Yesterday, we happened upon a friendly and curious herd of cows.  They had the sweetest faces and the most entertaining mannerisms.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Wonderful photo. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland about 75 miles from Washington DC. This being 40 some years ago, and small profit could be made milking 50 cows. Farmers now easily have to milk 400 to 500 cows for a profit. Mostly Holstein cattle with a few Jersey to improve butter fat content. Sad it takes large investment to make it in farming today.

  2. Wonderful photos – I definitely enjoyed them. Whenever I see cows (or goats or sheep) that might be friendly I always try to pet them. My family often teases me about how I think that farm animals are pets. But having grown up on a farm, I actually do have a tendency to think that they’ll be friendly. 🙂

    • Thank you, Sheryl. I agree with you about thinking farm animals are pets. In my experience, they often enjoy human interaction. And, cows are known to be intelligent and curious. These sweeties were very interested in us. I think they thought we were going to feed them. 😊

    • Thank you, Joey. I know…I love how green everything is in England. And, it was very cool–unseasonably cool. It was in the 60s most of our visit. You would definitely find the low temperatures and humidity to your liking. We got home Sunday evening, and the Virginia heat and humidity about knocked me out. It’s been in the 90s here so far–yuck!
      Besides the nice weather, the other thing we really enjoy about England is staying in the country and all of the farm animals. I thought the cows were pretty, too. They have such sweet faces. 😊
