A word from Emma!

Hi everyone....it's me, Emma, you know, Emma the calf! I am just laying here in the nice hay that the farmer threw out for me. I am really enjoying the sunshine! I have been keeping an eye on those three strangers that the farmer brought in awhile back. I have tried talking to them but they seem a little standoffish!


I think they will come around though....I am pretty sure they are just intimidated by my CUTENESS!

Me and the farmer's wife hope you have a happy, sunny day!!

PS...leave a comment if you stop by okay? I know that really makes the farmer's wife happy! ;)

Pin It!

So cute. My neighbor has cows that I like to pretend are mine, but this year he is keeping them in the back pasture where I can't see them. I hear them though and their "conversations" crack me up.

Hope you are having a great week.

Emma, you are so cute! I can see why you try to strike up a chat with those three standoffish strangers! They look pretty interested in you! LOL

Hi Farmchick, I love your blog! I envy you living on a farm. My family have been farmers for generations too... that is until they sent my Dad off to college. He got a business degree and moved away from the farm... which didn't go over well with my grandpa, I can say... but, somehow those generations of farm genes found their way into me, and though I can't "farm," I do garden. I follow your blog, as well as a number of other farmchicks. Also, Mary Jane has been an encouragement to many wanna-be farmchicks like me. (: http://www.maryjanesfarm.org/
I love your recipes!

Vicki--thanks for the comment. It's nice to have new people commenting..though I do love my regular commentors!!! :) My Dad and also my husband went to college and earned degrees but always knew that they had to farm...when it's in your blood you can't fight it! Since farming is in yoour blood it sure is great you can garden!! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh Emma---you just keep talking to those three little lambs. I am sure they are just a little shy and once they get to know you, you'll all be chit chattin' away in the barn!

Hey Farmchick--Adorable post! Emma is just too darn cute! So are those 3 lambs! Love your site! And thanks for always sharing those yummy recipes!

Have a great day!

Awww....Emma is so cute! I love the pictures of all of the animals.

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Sweet Blessings said...

I LOVE Emma...I so wish she was living at my house! I hope she's a keeper! I always name my heifer's hoping they'll be keepers :D So, happy the sun is shining down on you and your farm! Sweet blessings!

I love-love-love calves and your Emma is a beauty; such nice markings. I know I could never eat a calf/cow that I had named and become friends with. But I love beef. It would be so difficult.
Hope th eweather improves so you can get your garden in. We planted some of those Topsy Turvys in addition to our garden. Hope they work like advertised. So far, they are way ahead of the garden.
Also love the sandwiches you put the recipe on for. My husband thinks they are the be all- end all. Thanks for sharing.
