May (black halter) is expecting in September thanks to a straw. We held off on breeding Flora (red halter) because she was a bit younger. It struck us as a good idea to send Flora to the bull rather than bring the bull home, especially since the dairyman we bought Flora and May from didn’t mind. Further, there was a chance that the dairyman was going to get some pretty high-priced straws in time to use on Flora. She met the bull instead. Anyway, off they went just in time for us to get through kidding our goats. The cows came home again yesterday. It’s time to stop dancing.
It was nice having a month off from moving the cows. They came back fat and slick, maybe a bit spoiled. My pastures (yard) don’t compare to Steve’s pastures. Not at all. But we’re improving year after year.
