Country ART

It's no surprise that I LOVE COWS.  Growing up, I was not around cows.....never knowing that when we bought some land in the country, built our home, and then several years later brought home our very first little calf Carly , that I would fall head -over -heels IN LOVE with cows!

I mean, come on...do you see that little face? And we bottle-fed her, and she would suck MY thumb! To this day she is still my favorite! And she has an automatic ticket to live out her entire life on this farm...and then she will have a HUGE beautiful gravesite when her time comes! :(

Until recently, I thought my love was just for Miniature Herefords...then came Clover....

Clover is black angus and semmental mix, resulting in pure perfection (in my humble opinion).
She is Sierra's "baby"...and has the cutest personality! (And YES, we did a photoshoot of Sierra and her lovely 4H cow this past summer, we are lucky to be related to an awesome photographer, Amy)

Which comes to the topic of this post....I love country art...specifically, Cow Art!

I am OBSESSED with their little faces...some people are 'horse people', some are 'dog people', I guess you could call me a 'cow person'.

So if I am on anyone's Christmas List that is reading this post.....FYI, you could never go wrong with buying me some Cow Art! (haha)

Love it!! I understand. I think cows are super adorable, but I don't have any of my own yet. We live in a subdivision and the closest I've gotten is chickens. But my oh my do I love my chickens. I love their little personalities and how each one has their quirks. I've taken to collecting some chicken sculptures myself, so yes, I totally get it.

Did you ever see that cow painting Miss Mustard Seed put in her house? She loves cow art too :)

I just checked out Miss Mustard Seed...and yes, her white cow painting is gorgeous too! Thanks for "checking me out" Karianne!! I feel like I should have dressed up a bit if I knew someone famous was coming over! :)

Thanks Wendy! We also have TONS of chickens...but I'm not as attached to them! :)

This is "What I NEVER knew that I ALWAYS wanted"

A born and raised city girl, finding the country life to be the real me! Every day is an adventure, and each season brings new excitement and experiences. I am learning and loving the path of finding my true passion....making this little farm our HOME!
