Curious Cows

Oscar eating grapefuit

Oscar eating grapefruit

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know Me and Nellie share our property with two cows called Oscar and Maise. In addition to a healthy diet of grass, the cows are feed extra food like apples and grapefruit when in season.  Last week daddy was out feeding the cows some grapefruit in the woolshed paddock.  The cows are very fond of grapefruit and were very disappointed then they had eaten it all up.  They wanted more, so Oscar followed daddy into his man cave woolshed looking for some more tasty treats. Maybe they are like Me and Nellie, who are also very fond of tasty treats.  So imagine daddy’s surprise when he heard a strange noise, turned around and there was a cow looking at him in the doorway.

Needless to say Oscar didn’t venture much further than the doorway in his search for more tasty treats.  Off Me and Nellie go.  It is almost time for our morning dinner and We must the there waiting for our biscuits or else mummy forgets to give Us our food.  Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in the land.

  1. I like that the cow was politely waiting for more grapefruits. Sometimes being well-behaved pays off!

    Love and licks,

    Our grapefruits just turned ripe. How do you have them at the end of summer? Grapefruit trees are too finicky for the cold here, but do well 20 miles (30km) from here because the elevation is lower and you don’t get the frost. Grapefuits seem to be cold sensitive-we grow oranges, lemons and limes but no grapefruit.

  4. Oh my that is the cutest ever! I never knew that cows eat grapefruit! Wonder if that is how they make SOUR CREAM??? BOL!

  5. Us too. We never knew cows ate grapefruit. LOL at Dakota’s comment re sour cream. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly
