back again

I will try to post a quick note each morning, so here's the first of many (hopefully). I was looking over my past blogs, since my last post we got Herbie, he was hopefully successful in breeding our two pigs, we'll know closer to April. We took him and Rose the cow, our first milker tto the auction at Springfield about a month ago now. Rose was not able to calf anymore we think, she just couldn't get and stay breed. This winter has been quite cold, the rye won't grow, so hay has been a necessity. In saying that, we had some hay for the cows that was kept in a low spot at my wife's grandparents, bless him for giving us hay, who knew it would soak up some much water. To make a long story short the hay made the cows sick, they are all well now; however we are having to purchase hay. We have a new cow as well, another milker, her name is Sugar, she is a Jersey, first year milking, so she'll be around for a while. We have loads of milk- Got Milk? =)
