In Search Of...HIM

A few weeks ago, I left extra early for Tai Chi because I wanted to stop and take a few pix of "the girls".  These beautiful bovines belong to The Farmers Cow and, as you can see, were more than happy to pose for me.  In fact, a few of them pushed their way through the crowd to get closer to the fencing!!





Seeing all their numbered tags, I got to thinking...which usually gets me in trouble.  I wonder what ever happened to my handsome devil, # 3435?
No.  It isn't a number I pulled out of my hat!

JP with #3435


Sharing present and past with you and those at

Good Fences



If you want to see read about #3435 and I and when we first met, take a look at this link to a post dated October, 2010 What A Handsome Devil.



Hmmmm...perhaps a little research is the next step.

to be continued...
I hope...:)

They are very curious and friendly. Little 3435 is so unusual looking and pretty, I laughed when I read about him sucking on your finger. I hope he will stay as a pet and not be taken. How did I miss your toilet paper roll idea?? It is really a god idea and FREE!

There's a few dairy farms near us but I don't know anyone to invite myself for a visit. I do like the close up photos you've shared. The little guy you were patting back in 2010 likely went to market long ago. Sad to think of him ending up that way, isn't it?

I changed from vegetarian to vegan a couple of years ago when I realized what happens to the males born on a dairy farm. Recycling is good (I liked your commentary on that). The way we treat animals in large-scale dairy and beef operations, however, is not acceptable to me.

Sadly, that adorable little guy was probably butchered for veal. Male calves born on dairy farms have little use. They are put in very small pens (like the one you see here) so as not to move their muscles too much (makes the meat less tender when they are allowed to move about too freely). Then slaughtered for veal. I believe they are allowed to live for a month or so.

I can see why you were smitten. Going to read your past post.

LV said...

Loved seeing all the cows trying to figure out what you were doing looking at them through the fence.

Ida said...

Well that is a sweet little calf but yes it would be interesting to know it's whereabouts now.
Nice shots of the cows.

I think cows are special. Before we left our farm when I was 6 I remember being allowed to 'milk' one gentle old cow. I think I may have got enough milk to perhaps feed the cat.
I do hope you are able to find out what happened to 3435. Maybe he went on to be a dad. One can only hope.

I love cows. I hope #3435 has a happy ending
