January Favorites // 2018

January Favorites // 2018 - sheerheart.org

Is it ever too late to do a favorites post? I sure hope not, because even though we are already seven days into February, I’ve got a handful of January Favorites that are still worth sharing. The first month of the year was, for the most part, a blast. Full of family time, ranch time and lots of time with the cows. To my amazement, I haven’t accidentally wrote 2017 on any of my journal entries or work documents! How long does it normally take you to adjust to writing…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday folks! I don’t know about y’all but this week totally fried my brain. I wish I was better about drafting a ton of posts to have on hand but hey that wouldn’t be me! But not to worry, luckily I have thousands of cow pictures on my computer to share with y’all. So enjoy, and also be on the lookout next week. It’s my birthday week and I’ll be post happy! Happy Friday – moo moo moo Out of each calf crop there are sure to be a…

Photo Share: Family Vacation to the Beach 2017

Family Vacation to the Beach 2017 - sheerheart.org

Almost two weeks later, I’m back at work, no sand in sight, hair no longer blowing in the wind off the coast. But I’m here nonetheless. Our family vacation to Port Aransas was a relative success, if you don’t count the wind keeping us at the pool most of the time. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it, I didn’t tote my camera around a whole lot. I unplugged for the most part and enjoyed the sights and happenings. But I seriously wish I would have taken…

Farm Feature: Cow Pictures

farm feature: My Favorite Cow Pictures I Have Taken - sheer heart.org

Since the beginning of sheerheart.org, I’ve blogged about a couple of things more often than others, one of those being cow pictures. It should be no surprise to anyone who knows me. Growing up in the country with a herd of cattle around me most often, I have loved cows since I can remember. That love has grown only stronger. A couple of nights ago, when I was brainstorming post ideas, I realized it had been awhile since I looked through the cow picture folders on my computer. I recently had a…

Not For Sale

Not For Sale feat img

Four hundred twenty-five dollars. If handed $425 right now, what would you want to spend it on? A pair of jeans? If you have watched the news or been on Facebook of late, you will most likely know of the story I am referring to. If not check out this article. Or better yet, read the blog post from Mike Rowe, host of the television show “Dirty Jobs”. I had to laugh. As silly as it is to think of someone paying $425 for a pair of jeans that have…

March Favorites

March 2017 Favorties

Where has March gone? I couldn’t wait for March. Promises of baseball, good weather and free weekends to play with cows. For the most part, March did not let me down! Well Aggie baseball did, going 1-2, the first weekend of March in the Shriner Baseball Classic in Houston, but nonetheless, it was a great month and the Aggies shutting out lsu last night was a cherry on top. April is looking just as promising. Engagement pictures to be taken of my sister and her fiance! My cousin’s wedding! Fish Fry,…

Moo Cow Moo

Calf Club

Some days, you just need to look at cute pictures of cows to get you going. Something is in the air, my allergies are on overdrive and medicine is wearing off. Figured it was as good of a time as ever to share with y’all some pictures I took last week, with my new lens. These cows and calves sure look happy to be on a fresh pasture! And of course I had to make a stop up at Grandma and Grandpa’s to see what I could find there. Well hope…

The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

Weaning Calves June 2016 - Cows - sheerheart.org

It sure has been a busy June. Already halfway through 2016. Unbelievable. But can’t complain too much about that. Halfway through just means I have had plenty of weekends so far in 2016 to have fun and toe the line with trouble! :) Figured it has been a hot minute since I shared pictures of cows with y’all. So today is the day, you’ll get to see lots of pictures. Disclaimer: not all pictures include four-legged mammals. Some contain no mammals at all. Also there may be a picture of…

Sunburnt in October

Working Cows w Grandpa

Occasionally weekends come around and I have no extensive plans. This is becoming less and less often, but when they do come around, I welcome them with open arms and try my damnedest to make the most of it! It was only a couple of weeks ago, I shared some pictures and happenings from the Commercial Heifer Validation. That was a fun day but a bit different from the usual working cow events. Like I summarized in that post and many prior, it doesn’t matter how many years I grow…
