Big critters in the campground :)

The last two days we've have some fun animal watching in our campground.

Yesterday early evening nine cows slowly walked in front of The Palms, about a campsite up from us, and strolled through the campground and out of sight.  I love seeing cows.

Then this morning, I was walking Katie and across the field came a family of four horses, the stallion, mare, yearling and little colt.

This seems to be a good scratching tree - I remember the filly from a previous year doing the same thing.  The crook of the tree must be in a perfect place.

They are such a pretty family.

See the horse in the field behind Katie?  This is her new thing:  when she wants out of the stroller to walk, she stands up and waits for me to lift her out.

Then this afternoon I glanced out the front windshield, and the cows were walking across the street again.  So of course I grabbed my camera and went outside to get some better shots. 

One of my favorite things about Bluewater Lake State Park, other than it's size and beauty, is the possibility of seeing horses wandering around in the campgrounds.  Cows aren't as plentiful, but so far this year I've seen more in two days than I have in the last two years.

Made my day!

From me and Katie, have a great Thursday evening, everyone!  :)


  1. I love animals too!!! I think your family of horses are adorable. That Katie is so that stroller. I am thinking of getting our little Shih Tzu one but they cost so much and I'm not sure how he will react to it. I might just give it a chance anyway.

  2. Love the color on the almost white cow. But there is something so beautiful and powerful about horses - I love them. Katie is just sooo cute.

  3. It is always a good day to see animals in the wild. Little Katie has you wrapped around her cute little paw! LOL

  4. Glad you are getting to see some cows. I learned to love them when I lived in Ireland and had them in the fields all around my house. They would always come up to the fence when I came home, no matter if it was day or night, and I would talk to them. You may be seeing more of them because their normal grazing places might be too dry now.

  5. Its great that you get to see the horses. There are supposed to be wild horses in the mountains around Cody but you have to go on 4 wheel drives roads to see them.

  6. I am not sure if any of the other state parks have live stock running around in them, but I think it is kind of neat :)

  7. You are the best at finding great happenings around you! Love it!


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
