  1. My steer would take out that tree with his horns, I wish he was trained like that though.

  5. If the tree was planted in 1997, it grows slowly because it looks pretty small. Trees are wonderful gifts for memorials and remembrances.

  8. I agree with others above about liberty and the calf being tethered to the tree. Glad it had shade.

  13. An interesting gift from England. Yes, oak trees take years and years to grow big and tall.

    1. oh because he was part of the english farm. this was right outside of the english farmhouse. instead of having him fenced in he was tied to the tree so we could all pet him! i guess i should have explained that. he really has nothing to do with the tree and sign lol
