Feeling His Oats

Sometimes when I'm outside, I hear a thumping noise.  I wonder what it is at first, and then I remember.

This guy lives right across the road from us.  He is a Lowline bull calf, born last year.  Lowlines, in a nutshell, are a small version of the Aberdeen Angus.  He is being grown out to see if he is bull potential, or not..... and we know where that leads.  


Hard to imagine he might grow up to look like this.

There are also two Lowline cows, one of which gave birth to this Bully, and the other one aborted.  They are bred to calve again this year.  The calves are really cute, and small, and I'll try to get pictures.

Much of the time, Bully's head looks like this.


His halter is hanging around his neck, also covered in mud


He lives on a horse farm, and used to have a pony in the field with him.  He got bigger and started acting more bullish, and it was in the pony's best interest to be put in an adjacent  field.  Now bully has a few inanimate objects for company.


As for that thumping, well just watch.
  You couldn't actually hear it in the video, only the wind.



  1. Reminds me of Yoko when she is kenneled for long hours while I am at work. I come home to DRY water buckets and chewed igloos :0(

  2. Cute video ! But he needs a herd to take care of he is bored . The large black bull photo looks like the Swiss breed those bulls are huge and built like that to . Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

  3. He looks like he can entertain himself alright! Looks warm there! :)

  4. I agree, the poor guy is bored. Good video.

  5. He needs a couple of border collies to chase around!


I love to get comments, so don't be shy!
