A picture a day from around the Roanoke, VA area.
My steer would take out that tree with his horns, I wish he was trained like that though.
this sweet little thing just layed there and let everyone pet him :)
Ironic that the animal is "bound" to the Liberty Tree, don't you think? :-)
actually now that you mention it, yes lol
250 years plus! Nice looking cow too.
and very well behaved :)

If the tree was planted in 1997, it grows slowly because it looks pretty small. Trees are wonderful gifts for memorials and remembrances.
rather ironic that the calf was tethered to a liberty tree. :)
Go! I find it very curious way to celebrate freedom with strings attached!
I agree with others above about liberty and the calf being tethered to the tree. Glad it had shade.
And, someone tied a cow to it! I tell you... it takes all kinds.
the cow is not fenced in but tied down so visitors can pet him :) i don't think he minded much!
Sorry we missed each other today. Will try again the next time I am headed that way. I cannot get over all the great shots you got in Staunton. Love these. I really do need to go again. Have a nice weekend. genie
The cow doesn't seem to mind being tethered to the tree!
An interesting gift from England. Yes, oak trees take years and years to grow big and tall.
I'm trying to figure out how the cow fits in! LOL! There is some irony there as others have mentioned.
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
Marvellous piece of history!
Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
