Jun

I am SO glad to be milking at home again now that Beulah Petunia is back from her date. Glory Bee and the chickens are glad to have her back, too.

They never miss a milking!

    I’m glad for Beulah Petunia’s safe return. I’ll bet she was glad to get home!

    I am glad BP is back home and I bet she feels the same! I see Glory bee watching mama get milked. I know she is glad! I figured the cow would wean the calf herself but then I am not a farmer with cows so I have no idea. Welcome home Beulah Petunia! :happyflower:

    I’m just curious, not being a farmer, do cows always go into labor on their own? Do you ever induce labor on a cow?

    TwistedStitcher, I really don’t know. Our experiences so far with birthing has been easy, though I do know sometimes people have to pull calves. I hope I never have to do that!

    I think GB is saying “Hey, save some for me!”

    I suppose any day GB could close enough to nurse momma would be like a birthday now. I know if my calves could they would think it is their’s. Your cows are so pretty.

    Never had chickens, but I’m beginning to think they are like cats with a “what’s in it for me” attitude. I can say this because I have a cat I dearly love. :sun:

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....
