This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Baby Buffs........................

A week or so ago I took pictures of the Buffalo. Well on our way to the thrift shop we noticed there were new babies. On our way back we stopped and I took some pictures. We also took the side road to see if we could find more. These are my pictures.

They are so cute. I sure hope that they have a nice life. They have a wonderful field, fields to roam.

These little guys will grow up in the Oleson's herd. Some will end up as meat no doubt but at least before that happens they will have some great pastures and great food. There is always huge fresh bales of hay in the fields. There are still quite a few fields as well.

I have not quite worked out who is kept where. This is a huge field that goes way over onto the side road we went on. Are they all cows? I don't quite know. The farm itself has a few close by in seperate fields so maybe those are the boys? Or destined for other things. I will have to try to find out. I will add some links to Oleson's farms

Oleson's Buffalo Farm Us old timers remember old Mr Oleson. He always worked in his store right up to the end of his life. He said hello to everyone who came in and always a smile. A local charactor, a very nice man who dedicated so much to this community. Still does even now through the NMC BBQ and many other donations and support for local causes.
I am sharing this with inspire me Monday at Create with Joy

I used to see Buffalo on a farm in Massachusetts when our daughter went to school there. They were quite far away (or my camera skill was not as good)so I never got photos are close-up as these! Thanks for sharing them.
