Where is Molly?
I brought the cows up during the thunderstorm at 3:00 in the morning. We put them in the combine shed…since we don’t have a combine. That’s where we should be milking anyway…not next to the old swing set in the back yard. Well, we SHOULD have a more formal milking location but…anyway…
I gave them access to about 2 days worth of grazing with another 3 days within easy reach. Just have to move the fence.
I had to look around a bit to find Molly.
She was hiding next to aunt Flora.
Aunt Flora wants to keep an eye on me.
Molly, as you might expect, spends much of her day eating, sleeping and growing. When she bothers to get up she frolics around, Houdinis her way out of the fence and annoys her mother. We think aunt Flora wants to be a mother. Just a few more months, Flora.
I caught Molly blinking after a nap and finally caught May with the camera. We are milking her once a day and it seems to be keeping the fat on her back. Here’s to hoping we can rebreed her soon and get her shifted to summer calving. Wonder if I can get another straw from Top Brass or if I should go with an A2A2 sire out of NZ…
