Cold Cows


The cows keep looking at me today like they want to go to the barn. I’m going to be moving them at the end of the week to keep them up close around the barn during the two-week buck season that starts next Monday, but I’m not ready to move them yet. They have hay and shelter in the field, so they’re all right even if they are complaining.

I’m also starting to think that Glory Bee is bred! She was artificially inseminated with Black Angus at the end of July. If she’s bred, she’s three and a half months along. I hope she is, that she’s starting to show, not just putting on weight! I’ll have her preg checked soon. I still need to get Dumplin AI’d. With so many workshops going on here, I haven’t had a chance to get that scheduled yet, so I’ll do it at the same time I get Glory Bee checked. As you can see, we have snow today!

    Happy Thanksgiving Suzanne! Your little bovine herd is so beautiful. I am really impressed with the depth of color in Dumplin’s red coat. She’s turned into a really gorgeous cow.

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....
