Back to the Bee-Hind


I. Love. My. Cow.

(Photos in this post by Jerry Waters.)

I have a vet making a farm call TODAY to preg check Glory Bee and let me know, for sure, if she is bred. What is more fun than watching somebody else stick their arm in your cow? Nothing, I tell you, NOTHING.

And the question must be answered.

She started bawling last week and it freaked me out. Maybe she was just in a bad mood. But. The bull was here for three months. He’s been gone for two and a half months. If she’s bred, there should be no trouble telling at this point.

I will update with the results!

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....
