And Then the Farmer Was Tired

She escaped. But we had to go move some sheep. And then we had to capture Glory Bee ALL OVER AGAIN.

But she’s locked up now.

I think.

I better go check–

    Poor GB, she’s not a happy girl in that photo is she? Strange when you think how us girls love necklaces… :moo:

    lol I’m sorry and I hope no children are reading this but that halter and chains look like something used in a certain adult theme.

    Hey, now you’re in business – halter and everything. So what if it took you twice. YOU DID IT! BP looks concerned, though. Did she moo her head off during the event?

    Really, she will be fine. In a few days Glory Bee will let you lead her around the farm. But…she does have Attitude now!

    I was glad to see you posted again. I really needed to know how things were when you got back to her.
    I am sorry she escaped but of the two options looking at the first photo of her with a slip knot rope on her neck it was the better of the two.
    You might want to consider, should you have another calf born, that the halter needs to be put on at about day one. Folks often wait till the little one is two big to train easily.

    BP: See, I told you to quit acting up. You’ll get over it!
    Congrats to the haltering team.

    The lady at the above blog has a fantastic relationship with her cows. You should amble on over to her place and see what she does. I have klearned a lot about cows from her and I don’t even own one!!!
    Glory Bee is so full of attitude. Cute though, very cute!

    Anyone who ever lived with a teenager can recognize that expression . . . This, too, shall pass.

    Tomorrow when you go to lead GB, hold the chain (rope?) in your left hand and hold onto her halter between her mouth and eye with your right hand, stand beside her and slowly walk with her. This works a lot better than pulling on the chain and you have more control. Hope you get a good night’s rest. I can hardly wait to see a picture of you leading a happy Glory Bee.

    Just the look on her face tells me what a time you must have had getting that halter on her. BP looks glad to have her under control.

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....
