When It Rains, It Bellows

May

I have to milk.


It’s raining.
It’s pouring.
It’s so annoying.

I have to milk.

Please excuse the lack of poetry in this moment.


SHE IS BELLOWING.

    So, is she a contralto, or more of an alto, or something else entirely?

    Enquiring minds need to know…

    She will get over it eventually, hopefully before it drives you insane! :dancingmonster:

    All of this rain is driving me insane….we only get like ONE day a week of sunshine here in WV this spring…AAAAAARGH!!! Can’t even get the grass cut! (I keep telling my husband that we’re going to have to get some goats!)

    Same here! About one day each week of sunshine, the rest – rain! I did a lot of moving and transplanting today, so some rain is good, but this is nuts! I have tilling to get done, but not in the mud! It’s cold too!

    I feel for you, too, Suzanne! I hate going out in the cold rain!

    She’ll do it for you!! Wear rain gear and let it rain. You won’t melt, you’re a farmer complete with fun. :snoopy:

    We’ve had rain forever it seems. When I see it on the TV weather map for here (Kentucky) and headed your way, every time I think: Oh, poor Suzanne!!

    Maybe you could post an audio of the bellowing. It has been a while since I have heard a cow or calf bellow. We might as well suffer a bit with you!! LOL :cowsleep: :sheepjump: :sheep:
    Sure wish you could send the rain to Texas. We REALLY need it. :hissyfit: Too much of the state is on fire, and we all are fearful.

    I’m guessing this weaning is as hard for you as it is for BP & Glory Bee: it must be awfully tempting to just give in & let her nurse so you won’t have to milk. Gotta be tough and pull your real farmer chore boots on. Maybe it would help if you bellow while you do it.

    Ha ha ha ha, “bellow” while she does it ehh? That would be funny to watch.

    Does the expression on these faces remind you of anyone?

    KarenAnne’s link was interesting — they weren’t bellowing however. Hopefully it gets better each day Suzanne.

    GB, you can do it! You’re a big girl now!
    I hope the weaning process goes quickly.

    That first photo from KarenAnne’s link: the second ox looks a lot like GB, and what a handsome feller he is! I thought they were both cows until I read the caption. :moo:

    Aw, poor Glory Bee…wants her momma.

    Another few days until the bellowing stops. Since you were on a day on day off schedule, it will take her longer to figure out that she’s not getting to see her ma. Our cows and calves accept it after a few days. Hang in there. :moo:

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....
