I knew that was dash and that new grandbaby.
It's almost like cheating . I don't no how he keeps winning, I want his p.m.s released immediately.
Looks like he rubbed his hands in some grease to. Nice touch..... ;-)

Thank You for the Votes. This is Sophia and she turned 4mths Saturday. This angel has turned my world upside down, I never expected a grand child to have this effect. This particular day I came in from outside and she was asleep. I laid my hand on her pallet next to hers and she grabbed my finger. I was scrolling thru CT and seen the contest Info on resting category so I snapped a pic . I just wish My daughter would understand that she needs to bring her to see her Big Daddy every day.

No way in the world to compete against a beautiful baby girl. I know you gotta be proud Dash.

I was really really torn about which pic to submit.. I do love the one I entered.. Here were my runner-ups...
Mega with her first calf, the morning after
Image

2 more buddy calves enjoying the sun
Image

Same day, Roma passed out
Image

And lastly.. my cat Bobby.. He could lay behind that window in 110* weather and be perfectly happy

Congrats M-5.. it is a great pic... We were tied for a while though! ;)
Callmefence.. Loved your pic, that cow looks a LOT like my first cow

I'm sure lots of other people had trouble choosing.. show the runner ups :)

Yep, that always works. Seen too many photo contests over the years not to recognize that, but yours was different. Great subject and the focus in rough & tumble foreground subject against a pure and innocent background brought a really unique aspect to it. An all around great photo.

...and forgot to vote for putangitangi's entry too.
I did recognise it as a NZ photo, but *after* I'd decided I really liked that one and was going to vote for it, but then never got round to logging in.

I was thinking of posting a photo like the 'Roma passed out' one, but thought that would be mean... someone might have really thought it was a deadstock. Or several deadstock, some days I go past the calves and there's about five of them all flaked out in the sun.

no chance of competing against the bairn anyway, I coulda put up the one of me passed out on the cat.
