oohhhh she is so sweet! But you couldnt just have one cow, could you? wouldnt they need a companion?
When I retire, I think it might a great idea to get a milk cow. Course, that would definitely tie me down a lot more than the chickens do. And I would have to get milking lessons and figure out where to put the milk, and,,,,so maybe what I really need is a neighbor with a milk cow :)
Where I live used to be all dairy farms, not too many left now. There is one a few miles away that probably has 800 or a 1,000 cows. They are always advertising for help, I figure the young kids would rather work for less at an easy job.
THe high school here has a tradition, that on one of the last days of school, the seniors bring tractors to school - they gather at the county fairground, some have hay wagons, and the senior class on tractors (some humongous ones that take up more than a lane, down to the old farmalls and small ones - last year someone even rode a lawn tractor!. Anyway, they parade through mainstreet to the high school. Sometimes the dads are waiting at the hs because they need those tractors in the field at this time of the year.
anyway...gorgeous day. Happy chickens, happy chicks, and I get to get some of the garden planted before trying to finish up that blessed hoop coop.
