I took some great Sunday morning barn shots BUT after uploading them to my laptop the battery died so I can only use The Gentle Giants laptop but photos are on the other. I will post them at a later date. It was amazing going out in the barn this morning. The smell of fresh hay, cow and goat noises and more. I just can't wait until I can really dig in around here. It has been warmer here as well. I am happy for that.
Any ways... Lots of new things here on the farm! As you can see from the header we took delivery of our milking cow, a Jersey. Her name is Buttermilk we think... Not to original but it sure seems to fit her well.
We have gotten about 4 gallons since she has been here, just 24 hours. Pretty good I would say with being trailered here and her first time leaving her original farm in her entire life. I know she will produce even more as we go but I am actually hoping not to much more as 4 gallons a day is A LOT. We may have to start a cow share milk program or something... At any rate we will LOVE having our own butter now and fresh creme!
Daddy also came home with this adorable boarder colllie to help round up the team... Mom was not as thrilled with the puppy but it sure is cute I would say! A pony is on the way as well. The children are thrilled. We have 2 birthday's this month to celebrate.
I am slowing down now quite a bit in these last 6-9 weeks... We are so blessed to have this opportunity to have new life again. I just can't wait!
