Not always Black and White

“If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull!” ~ W.C. Fields

This is a second response to the photo challenge White from GC and my site Weekly Prompts.

SONY DSCA few days ago the sheep were shorn and their long shaggy coats removed revealing the bottom layer of snowy-white fleece.

Hawaii Five-O the resident bull has had a busy few days. The first lady to receive his attention was this pretty littleย heifer above andย obviously NOT white! He spent a couple of days with her never leaving her side.

The second young lady was somewhat larger, this black and white heifer.ย 

A day later and he turned his attention to the pretty brown heifer featured last week.

Yesterday I noticed the object of his affection was this lovely little white heifer

SONY DSCThis evening his attention has turned to this little black and white lady. I wonder which one will be next?

At this rate he’ll be done and dusted by the end of this week and from what I can see he doesn’t need to do any chasing either!

    “The shame of it all”….. that’s what my grandma would’ve said, and she was brought up on a farm! These pretty “cow-girls” aren’t shy, are they? Lol. You need to post a sign on the fence, ” Sue’s Bovine Baby Boomers”.

    Hawaii-Five O is quite the charmer and ladies man!! I imagine he will require some much needed rest from his…..ummmm, activities!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I can’t wait to see the fruits of their labor. Well, the heifers labor!!

    Even shorn, the sheep look so cute. Snowy white fleece indeed. How long does it take before they will need to be shorn again?

    Great post for this prompt.

    1. Oops sorry that one went before completed! Meant to say… These sheep wonโ€™t be sheared again until this time next year. The fleece will begin to grow thick again ready for winter. These girls aren’t at all shy and for a couple of days these couples seem to care, and then he moves on and she goes back to the others to tell them all about it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Lucky Hawaii Five-O!! Itโ€™s a good job each girl isnโ€™t too bothered about him turning his attentions to another, once heโ€™s wooโ€™d her & had his wicked way, Sue! I mean, the last one to receive his โ€œaffectionโ€ could be a bit miffed at being last on his list!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I do feel a bit sorry for the shorn sheep. It was lovely here the day some of them were shorn, then markedly colder the following day..not that they looked like they were shivering, mind! Lovely photos, Sue! โ˜บ๏ธ

    1. Always the same Debbie, the weather always changes the day after the sheep are shorn!

      I like to think that these girls were the winners here. They get what they want and will go on to enjoy the fruits of their ‘labour’, those beautiful calves, well, at least for a few months. Hawaii, on the other hand will have enjoyed nothing but brief encounters… until they meet again next year!

      1. You are right, Sue. It must be wonderful seeing the end result of adorable calves in the fields with their moms. The cattle all seem to be bulls, locally, & bigger calves, away from mom, once they get here. Oh well, get it while you can, Hawaii..then off you go, back to the excitement of chewing the cud!

  3. We were always a bit wary about bulls in fields while out walking but when they are ‘with cows’ they’ve got plenty of other things on their minds! Great camera work Sue. You’ve obviously got a birds eye view.

    1. I’m out there at every opportunity Selina and with a good zoom lens. I was surprised to find I could actually zoom into a neighbours garden three fields away when I took a photo from a different angle!
      My son Joss, following our family party yesterday went into the field to say hello to the bull! Yes, I agree only a mad man or a drunk would do that! I did warn him that they are actually more frightened of him than the other way around. He went anyway, and was disappointed when they all turned and ran including the bull. What was he expecting… a bullfight? Prosecco has a lot to answer to for! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Oh er. That does sound a bit daft. They can sometimes turn and are quite fast on their feet if they feel like it.

        I did snigger at the thought of you aiming your camera straight into a neighbours garden…my mum has a pair of binoculars which, I have a nasty feeling, she uses to do the same thing! Probably best I don’t know….

      2. If I ever feel the urge to spy on those three fields away I shall reach for the zoom lens it beats the binoculars hands down! ๐Ÿ™‚
