I'm Not Right in the Head


Due to the husband's illness or work schedule, I check and feed the cattle at the lease place. Of course, the husband will have a bazillion questions about how they look, does this one look okay or that one. My answers usually consist of..."looks fine. looks okay." things of that nature. If they are on all fours, relatively full looking and don't have snot running out their nose, I think things are good. Well you know that does not suffice the husband. So I have learned to take my camera and bring him photos of the cattle. That way he can see for himself.

We are currently in calving season. So the questions become more centered on the cows personal area. As I was taking pictures yesterday, I felt like a porn mag photographer.



Hi, I'm Daisy. I'm a Pices. I enjoy leisurely walks thru the meadow. My idea of a perfect date would be a moonlit stroll thru the hay field. I'm a little shy but if you bring feed, I'll follow you anywhere...

Maybe I'll make a magazine for the bulls, name it Rustler. But that would mean a lot of writing on my part cause, you know, they only get them for the articles!

I was taking pictures for a braiding article I was writing last summer. My friend comes in when I am taking pictures of my mares braided tail (or her bum as he thought) and he exclaims "Thats ponygraphy you know!"

Yup I hear you I have been calving cows for years and before the "20 questions " from the hubby I used to get it from my dad.(I swear they keep asking till you don't have an answer) I sometimes just say huh? I dunno right away to see if they catch on.
Cow porn ! brilliant ,I wonder what pepole think when they walk in partway through some of our cow conversations

Cher said...

Rustler...I'm laughing out loud.

My late father-in-law raised fine registered Holsteins in northern NY for years. Picturesque farm that people would stop to take photos of. One July afternoon, a very indignant elderly lady stopped, knocked on the front door of the house and then proceeded to read the riot act to Dad about the cows being "indecent" and he should cover their "bags" because the public shouldn't have to see that when it drove by, surely someone must make bras for cows. Seriously!
He was absolutely speechless, couldn't think of anything to say before she trotted to her car and drove off.

Brilliance, I tell ya.

ROFLMBUTTOFF!! Rustler! My DH is in the background bustin' up. You're a hoot girl! (I actually just accidentally typed "hott" instead of "hoot." Don't ya love it when those random things happen and you come up with weird things?

I think "hott" would be a tad strange coming from me but you are absolutely a DARlin' girl! Love your profile picture!

prairierunner said...

Why is it that they won't believe you but will believe a picture you took. I go through the same thing. I guess it's taught me to use my camera.

Kris said...

Hilarious! When you start up Rustler and need a backup photographer, let me know. I've got experience on that variety of photos illustrating the degree of almost-ready-to-calve area!

I'll comment later.
Right now, I have to clean my keyboard up.
You owe me a new one. ;-)

Around here the roles would be reversed. I'm always asking my husband questions about how the horses looked when he feeds, waters, etc. If they're not dead, they look fine to him so that answer just doesn't cut it. Pictures might shut me up...LOL Sheer brilliance on your part! (my hubby is not so wise.......)

During foaling season I have taken pics of mare's private parts for posts on my blog. I did definitely feel like I was doing porn instead of informational posts.

"Ruslter" cracks me up.
Fun post!

kdwhorses said...

ROTFL!!!!!!! Oh good Lordie that's great!

Hey wouldn't that be something RUstler magazine! LOL!

Jen said...

That is funny!!

Angelena said...

Oh I know those photo shots all too well-- we are in calving season too.

The W.O.W. factor said...

OMG Wifey! Maybe you had better change your blog to "Adult Content"..LOL!
My Cowboy, over the years learned (maybe the hard way) to trust my call or judgement...without pictures. I was never wrong..and the many times I "QUIT", taught him to trust me...if he wanted or expected my help!
Calving is a lot of work and time...but my favorite of all! Even over foaling.
Glad you appeased with a camera...good thinking!
"Rustler"...you may be on to something! ;)

Cow Pies & Mud Pies said...

That cracks me up!! Maybe I need to take my camera too...my hubby always asks those same questions...and I give the same answers as you! How funny!

Robynn's Ravings said...

There's an award for you over at my place. Come on by anytime! :)

Broken Y said...

What in the world can I say that everyone else hasn't! That is hilarious - I love the comment about the "articles"!

Jamie said...

I love your sense of humor....Rustler!

GreenRanchingMom said...

ROFL!!! I agree!! The 20 questions, are annoying. I feel like all I do this time of year is look at "hooeys". I'll have to remember the camera trick!

J and J Acres said...

Rustler!! You crack me up!!!

Andi said...

Hilarious! I just stumbled onto your blog, and find it quite entertaining! I'm sure I'll be coming back for more!
