Bossy and Oreo


Check in with Bossy and Oreo–isn’t Oreo growing?! She’s 10 months old now, so she could start cycling at any time. But it’s best not to breed a heifer until around 12-13 months old, so she and her mama are separated to a field to themselves for now. Bossy is already bred, so she doesn’t need to see her boyfriend right now anyway. Quality mother-daughter time!

    What beautiful animals, and the names seems to suit them. They remind me of two of my baking essentials, dark cocoa and black cocoa.

    We like to wait until they are 15 months and to calve as 2-year-olds.

    They are beautiful animals and in great condition.

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....
