Farm life

“Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures.”

~ Thomas De Quincey

Our niece sent photos of the newest addition to Bochsler Farm

Scratchy loves cows, in her world they are great big dogs...so our roads trips in the farm lands are laced with feverish barking at the runaway beasts in...SCRATCHY'S WORLD!!!

Hi Trux, wanna chase cows...
Love Scratchy

Beautiful quote, and I so agree. I grew up and still live in an area heavily populated by cows, and have had a few conversations with them in my life time. (They are wonderful listeners!) Gentle, with soul foul eyes, they have a special place in my heart.

When I was growing up I worked many hours on my grandparent's farm .... taking the cows to pasture and retrieving them in the early evening was my favorite thing to do!
