Herndon Heifers

A search for a pleasant spot for eating a salad that I purchased in Reston led me to Frying Pan Park in Herndon, Virginia. It turned out to be a great place for taking some barn photos.

I'm calling these young cows "heifers" but perhaps they are yearlings. Farmer friends, how do I tell?

Sharing with: The Barn Collective

This one reminds me of a deer. 


  1. Nice farm setting. Sorry, I can't help with your cow terminology. Generally I can tell a cow from a bull and that's about it. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  2. I enjoy watching them, they are so laid back

  3. very cute. could be heifers; could be young steers (castrated bulls).

  4. Well I guess you and the heifers enjoyed your meal together. They look like they are eating greens too.

  5. Every barn is better with the animals whatever they may be. Thanks for sharing this week!

  6. beautiful images Linda. I'm no expert but I would call them young calves. They don't appear to be even a year old yet....close.

    However old they are......... they are sure cute.

  7. they are soo cute and have nice colors. :)
