Cows Next Door


When I was a kid, we always had cows. I showed
steers when I was a kid in 4H and when I was
six my grandparents bought a Jersey Milk cow
for me named Susie. She would have calves, and
I got to take them to the sale and the money went
into a savings account for college. The grass was so
tall next door that the guy two doors down, had his
brother bring down some cows and calves to eat the
grass.

This is Ethyl, I am pretty sure she is a shorthorn.
We raised and showed shorthorn cattle.

This is Lucy. She is the nicest. She likes to stand
at my fence and have her head scratched. I will
miss them when they go back up to the mountains
to live. I have always wished I had a Brown Swiss
milk cow. I would even settle for a Jersey.
I think I have become to citified. Maybe some goats.
I would like some sheep too. I would love to have a
whole flock of Jacob's sheep.
My husband wouldn't. :)
Have a great Tuesday!

  1. "My husband wouldn't" HAHA! Oh well. Maybe one of these days you and I can open a goat/sheep ranch together... somewhere away from your house. And Dad would only come visit if he wanted too.

  2. Wouldn't that be fun! We could be full time sheepherders. Live on the land in a tiny trailer. Think of all of the wool you could have. :)
