Gingers Gotta Stick Together


Three milking shorthorns sharing the salt lick...Northstar, Rosie and Cinnamon.

This is a very cool photo. What kind of camera do you have?

Thanks, farmlady! It never fails to amuse me how the red and brown cows, the Shorthorns and Jerseys, seem to stick together. They are kind of like an elite school yard clique. lol

Very cool photo! Perfect for fb.

You are so right...our cows never really mix it up with the rancher's cows although they seem to visit with each other.

OK. That's a delightful picture :)

And that business about the cows being 'self-segregating' . . .
Now that's really interesting.

Linda, thanks. It has amazed me ever since we got the first few Jerseys. I wonder why...maybe it is that they are related closely...maybe they all smell alike or something. All our shorties are sired by one bull or they are the offspring of those that were and all our Jerseys descend from Heather, Liz's original Jersey cow.

Cathy, isn't it odd? You would think they would be sprinkled throughout the herd but they almost never are.
