Dairy Day At Shelburne Farms

Last Sunday, we went to Dairy Day at Shelburne Farms.  The weather was beautiful, and so were the cows.  I'll let most of the pictures speak for themselves.

I might be mistaken but I believe Mount Mansfield is in the background.

This calf was born the day before.  It's legs were still shaky and you could see the umbilical cord.

The calves loved having their cheeks scratched, and over course, nibbling at our clothes.

Around 3:30 PM, the cows came home.

We had a great time and will surely come again next year!

  5. Beautiful pictures - you can see why so many artists (masters) were inspired to try and capture the pastoral scenes of the countryside and the rhythm of the animal life within it.
