Well fans and followers, it is a great day on the farm!
The temperature is lovely, the sun is shining and we have a cow of our own in the pasture!
Ok, so she has been in the pasture for a few weeks, but she is ours now so that makes it all different.
The previous buyer for her was not able to commit so Melissa offered her to us! She is a bred Jersey (bred to a red dexter bull that throws low birth weight calves). She is due in May, has had all her vaccines and tests, has a bangs tag and has had a little time on the lead rope.
This morning I closed her in the stanchion for her morning cow cookies and hay, and locked the other girls in another pasture. She seemed to relax after a few minutes of brushing, petting and cooing. In the pasture she will come for cookies, but is still a little shy about being touched in the field.
That will pass in time. ;-)
She is very sweet and I am on cloud 9!
