Dateline: The boonies, Michael and Sarah’s farm, Sunday afternoon.

A two-year-old dairy heifer.

Grazing undisturbed in bucolic country charm.

Lo, she is alerted from her pastoral ease by an odd arrival.
IMG_7531d
Hark, what mischief awaits….
IMG_7532e
….in yonder trailer?
IMG_7533f
Go forth, young heifer, and multiply!
IMG_7536g
And then, yes, then….
IMG_7537h
….the world she had known since birth vanished in the rearview window.
IMG_7538i
But her new world at Sassafras Farm could barely wait to greet her!
IMG_7540j
With sniffing….
IMG_7542k
….and circling….
IMG_7543l
….and secret conversations.
IMG_7544m
Then they all ran away together….
IMG_7553p
….to get to know each other, share their favorite colors and TV shows, and exchange ideas for baby names.
IMG_7554q
I think they like each other, they really like each other!

Or they were hazing Blossom and they just didn’t want us to see.


Just kidding! Our new Jersey-Brown Swiss dairy heifer seems to be fitting in nicely with the rest of the girls and Beau. That’s the bull–he finally has a name.

Blossom is due to calve in June. Glory Bee, Dumplin, and Moon Pie are due in April. Bring on the calves, I’m ready!

    She is so pretty! Do cows generally get along with each other? Do they eventually get some sort of pecking order, or do they all just settle in with each other?

    Uh-oh. New girl is stylin’ a rad hair color there! Lookin’ mighty fine! Mighty fine! I wouldn’t be surprised to see the other girls sporting new hair colors soon.

    She is very colorful! I love her “hairdo”! And I just want to rub those fuzzy ears. I love fuzzy ears.

    Awwww! Thank you for this. Good for them and she is as beautiful as the girls. The bull is also a cutey. Will he grow bigger? He seems manageable for a bull at that size. And he is very handsome…

    Yes, he will get bigger. He’s only a year old.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
