Lawn Care Country Style

These past few days "the man of the place" has been taking care of the end of the year lawn care, having the lawn mowed;
the bovine way

This is our new young Angus bull, isn't he handsome.

Now I would not reccomend this way for just anyone, you need to have a couple of well natured bovines, fenced in yard and patience, they are not fast.
And they just don't mow the yard but also fertilized at the same time.

Now I can not say that they do as well as the lawn mower, but it is environmentally friendly. I would imagine that the carbon footprint on this would be very low.

The only thing now to be done is the "the man of the place" needs to figure out how is going to spread the fertilizer around.

Till next time

Go here to check out more.


  1. Yeah, we love natural lawnmowers!! and the bull is very handsome fellow. Have a great weekend. Blessings

  2. Love your new lawnmower! Maybe rain will help spread the fertilizer.

  3. Doniene, the bull is handsome and he is just 22 months old. He is going to be a dude.
    Deb, yes they are very friendly but I have learned that no matter how friendly they are still a lot bigger then me and I give them space.
    Karen, rain would be nice but the chicken found the piles and went through looking for bugs, so that did the job.

  4. When I first read this I nearly fell outta my chair laughing. I wish my Hubby would get a few manual lawnmowers like yours, they're so quiet compared to the LOUD thing he does use. They're also so cute.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
