They are rather long in the face aren't they? Nice group of pastoral shots.

Memphis MOJO said...

There are some wicked looking horns on that one guy -- wow!

Jack said...

I like the bottom two, where you come in closer. They have a hang-dog look, with the drooping ears.

Randy said...

They looking a little bored. The steer needs to rally his troops.

dans la capitale des chevaux, les vaches doivent avoir du mal a se faire une place...un seul mot "révolution" ;)

I agree with Jack. I'm glad he said it because I wouldn't have known how to phrase it. How extraordinary...

SRQ said...

You can't go wrong with cow pics. I love the droopy-eared guys -- too cute.

In the first photo, these guys match the tree line.

I think that the brahma cows are better suited for hot climates like Florida, India or Costa Rica. They are different than other cows because of their sweat glands, or lack thereof.

My what big horns (and ears) you have! Such unique cattle.

Small City Scenes said...

Very cool. I don't think I have seen one with such fierce horns.

I'll be back later to check out your other blogs I am off to deliver passengers to the airport. MB

Just chillin' in a sunny field

EG Wow said...

They are a relaxed-looking bunch. I think I could learn a lot from them. :)

Lois said...

Wow I just love this series of pictures! They sure are enjoying that sunshine.

Amin said...

Wow... wonderful photos! I liked these photos very much!

Charlotte said...

Great shots! I really got this Indian feeling. Excellent!

You're right - and this is why I keep commemorating this day every year. I think it is so important, that we never forget .....

Tiger says Purr-:)

I hope you enjoy your evening!
Best wishes ....

Jarart said...

I like these guys. Those droopy ears are the best.

Steffe said...

Moo!

Kate said...

We all seem to be fascinated with their ears. Unusual looking animals. I'm assuming that they are being raised as beef cattle. Wonder how they taste?

Halcyon said...

Did you call out "group shot"? It looks like they're getting themselves arranged... like at a wedding or a family reunion. :)

JM said...

Jacob, I just LOVE the top and bottom shots! It seems the herd has been placed there for the photo. Fantastic!

The horns are truly impressive!
This picture is nice, it has a feeling of tranquility...
God bless you!
