Good Morning from the Girls


 Pecan with her new baby boy...photo taken by Liz with her phone. He was sired by a Cal Clark Board Chairman son we had some years ago.



Lemmie is tall. Lemmie has a long neck. Lemmie can help herself to nice, fresh green chop that not many of the other cows can reach.

And so she does.



My cow, Asaki. Asaki is one of those cows you wish you could clone by the dozen. Calm, sensible, easy to milk and easy on the eyes. We like her.



Little bitty Scotty. Scotty is half Jersey, out of Broadway, who is half milking shorthorn and half Holstein, so she has the breeds pretty well covered. She is small, but she is a real hard worker..... pretty much the only Jersey I have ever enjoyed milking.

Here is a collage of Scotty's baby pictures.

I WANT TO PET THEM!!! I love cows. I also know that if I (a total stranger) showed up to pet them the milk production would slow. But I would love to do so...after you've milked and before they head out the doors.

Here's where my ign'ance shows: I'm surprised that Scotty's face coloring changed so dramatically! She's a calico cow!

Nita, I know just what you mean. I am spending a lot of time outdoors these days, even if it is just walking Miss Daisy.

Ed, thanks,

Rev. Paul, thanks

Linda, some of them might let you pet them. They are mostly pretty tame.

June, that is the Jersey of it. They change colors all the time, even with the seasons. Old Heather was much, much darker in winter than in summer. You would be hard pressed to recognize her.

Cathy, I like em, but I guess you knew that. lol
