We are getting a cow!

A cow? Wow!

Well maybe not a cow, but a heifer who will some day be a cow.

Why a cow?

I used to have goats. I loved them, and I milked them twice a day. But after Steve got sick; it was just too much. Then after he went to Heaven, I sold them all.

Yes- I have the sheep for grass fed lamb, but I started thinking about raw dairy again and the possibility of grass fed beef.

I was going to go with a Dexter breed; but my drive to work everyday takes me past a beautiful place that raises a smallish beefy breed. So I looked them up and called them.

Today we met our new little heifer. She cannot come to live with us until December, but that gives me time to get the appropriate fencing installed.

All right, everyone let me introduce you to Sharing Life’s Abundance Farm’s Brianna Butter Bruce. We will call her Miss B, and later the sheeplings can call her Aunt B. One of my favorite TV personalities.

She is a cross between the Aberdeen black angus (the original small breed, which is a small meat breed with a sweet personality, and the White Brit which also has a nice personality but is used for both meat and milk. They are a short, beautifully marked stocky breed.

More cow fun to come!

    Just when I think you have joined the 8 to 5 crowd and settled in for a routine life you add a cow to your entourage of animals. I’m proud of you, a little lady doing gigantic things. Keep it up.
