Pasture

Our tiny herd keeps growing.
We are now blessed with a
Normande/Watusi cross cow, Simmental cow, Dexter cow and a Dexter/Lowline Heifer.

We sold our first cow, Miss Molly,
so we could get a breed (Normande) that
Handsome Husband has been interested in for some time.

Our Dexters are growing well. We are slowly transitioning towards the smaller stature of the Dexter. We have been very happy with our girls. The best meat I have ever tasted came from a Dexter steer who was about 22 months of age and grass fed.

Two years ago, we purchased a bottle bull. We named him Otis and quickly fell in love with his orneriness. He wasn't quite big enough yet to breed all the girls, so we borrowed a SImmental bull named, Ox. He is the most gentle giant that I have ever seen. The only time he gets excited at all is if you stop petting him. We were blessed with heifers this past year. We look forward to seeing what drops this spring.

How to graft a calf to a cow. Flytape! Candy got herself in a pickle. She kept giving me "the look" when I couldn't help but laugh and take pictures.
I love my cows (and horses, pigs, dogs, cats, kids). My cows have snuck into my heart in a way I did not expect. This evening, these two ornery cusses decided to get into my tack room and decorate with some Christmas items I had in a box near the door. They helped open the ornament storage container, storing some Garland and attempted to wear a Santa hat. Handsome Husband called out from the kitchen asking if I want to good news or bad news first. "Give me the bad news.", I said. "Your cows are in your tack room.", he replied. I march down to the tack room and attempt to get everything back into the box, meanwhile, my steer (with horns) and my bull are staring at me innocently while attempting to sneak something else out from behind my back. The door handle felt a bit slimy like someone had used their tongue to open it. Will have to check first thing in the morning. The good news was that Handsome Husband loves me.
