It has been an odd winter here in Wisconsin. Very little snow and very few bitter cold days. I am certainly not complaining! Today is bright and sunny so I thought I would snap a few photos to share with you all.
Our “Dry” cows are enjoying a little breakfast. A dry cow is a cow that isn’t producing milk because she is getting ready to calve.
Rumchata is a Jersey crossed with, well to be honest I’m not sure what she is crossed with, but she is pretty tiny. As you can see, the Holstein cow in the background is a lot bigger! I am patiently waiting for RumChata to have her calf. Since I bought her at an auction I have no idea when her due date is but it should be coming soon.
There’s always one kid who has to make a weird face in the class photo. This silly heifer is Nermal, she’s the daughter of Norma, the cow featured on the top of my blog.
Our garden gnome finally made it out of the snowbank and back on his feet.
Hope you are able to enjoy the weather today where ever you are reading this blog from!
