Village farmhouse and Cow stable

IMG_5565

While coming back from Kolli Hills, long before, we stopped at the foothills to have some tea and adjacent to the village tea shop, we found a farm house come cow stable and it captured our attention to take a look and click photos. The foothills of the Kolli Hills are quite lavish with pretty farm lands and plantations of areca and coconut palm.

Coming under Namakkal district, which is popular for poultry production, the landscape adopts   number of poultry farms that spread across the district taking care of the entire state poultry products and also supports the neighbouring states of Tamil Nadu. I really enjoyed the halt and the cow stable took back to my childhood days and happy moments spent at my grandfather’s village. My grandparents had also involved in milk business and reared cows and buffaloes until the year 2000, so the connectivity with cattle is irresistible always.

The cow stable has a typical hump of hay and I have memories of climbing the hay piles and experience itching after rolling and crawling along the hay in the grandparent’s village. They usually have a ladder to climb atop to bring down a bunch of hay, from the collected, to feed bulls. The stable has couple of cows and a calf and the untied goat kept wandering around. And he’s a great poser and it’s proved beneath!

I don't recognize the breed of cows that are in the photos. I do see a goat that looks familiar. It has to be fun to visit different places like this.

Such visits make us feel grounded with our environment.

That goat is a great poser indeed. I never lived in a village, want to live in one for a short time at least..
