That meant LOTS of hard work and long hours.
Hours with what I consider the best animals in the world.
Even before we had the dairy, we had a milk cow.
We milked her by hand.
Twice a day.
We had calves.
We also had beef cattle.
I liked those, too....they were really yummy!
But none measured up to my beautiful Holsteins.
Isn't this one gorgeous...in a sad sort of way?
I have a collection of cows.
I have this beautiful little lady.
If you came to my house, you'd also get to hear her.
Because she moos every hour.
I <3 my awesome cow clock that my Daddy gave me!
And this one? I LOVE it!! SO adoreable!!
On SO many fronts!
I have another one similar...
Because I have no place to display my beauties.
The few I have out are in my kitchen.
I DO have a couple of stuffed little ladies.
They're gorgeous, too.
Someday I'll have a place for all of my beautiful little ladies.
And then I'll get them all out...
And share their beauty with everyone.
Because you know I won't be able to resist their adorableness!!
