Today I happened to find all my cattle in the small lot at once, giving me a chance to take a picture of them.
Jody, of course, will probably leave us, unless a miracle occurs. Those of you who believe in miracles, this is your chance to put in a good word for her. It is looking ever more promising, though, that she will be able to stick around until she presents us with a calf. We hope it will be a girl, since it's daddy is a Jersey, and I really love Jerseys.
So I have two mature cows, Babe and Bonnie. Babe gave us a girl, and we are really hoping Bonnie gives us a heifer too; it will be a whiteface calf, like Babe and Annie. Bonnie has presented us with three bull calves so far, and I think it's time for a heifer.
My herd consists of one baby steer; two baby heifers; one bull; one pregnant heifer; and two mature cows.
And I went cow-shopping? What was I thinking? I have PLENTY of cows! Besides, we just have a little over 40 acres, and only about half of them usable.
