Apart from the rooster of my friends there were the many cows we saw . Even on our cycle tour we had to cycle behind a herd of cows, which were taken to other fields. We also saw a herd of Dutch Land Goats which had almost become extinct, had it not been for a group of biologists who succeeded to breed them back.

This group of Canadian geese in the distance, and a cormorant were worth seeing as well.

A very handsome rooster. The Friesland cows look like the breed that over here is the US is called Holstein and is popular with large commercial dairies.

Wonderful assortment of critters. I love when someone brings back one of the almost extinct animals -- we need more of the *heirloom* varieties. (One of my soapboxes!)

Wonderful farm photos. Makes me feel like singing about "Old McDonald"'s farm!
Funny to see the cows on the bike path.

In hubby's youth, his parents used to keep a goat - I've got to ask him which kind. The cows are leaner than I remembered:)

Wonderful array of 'critters' here. My favorite is the rooster, but I love the goats and geese too.
Hugs and blessings,

Eu said...

How nice your space !
I see you love animals as well !
I live in the Netherlands for 6 years now. I started a blog to proclaim my love for the animals.
I write it in my own language at the moment, but I'll install a translator in the next days.
I live in Noord-Brabant and I hope we can de virtual friends.
You have wonderful pictures of cats here beside !!

We have been away on a mini-trip and I am catching up reading your posts. These Dutch Goats are very beautiful – do they make goat cheese from their milk? Goat cheese is a favorite of mine but I have not heard of Dutch goat cheese.
