Our Cows

Back to farming after our trip.  Here is Tom moving the llama and cows to a new field with some grass:

Here is Indy.  Her udder is really filling out:

And here is Bug and Marji:

It won’t be long, and we will have another.  We are really hoping for a bull calf.

    Beautiful animals! I know you’re anxious for Indy to give birth. It’s always exciting!

    I noticed the blog marked “Cougar” above, and checked out what you had written that day. Did you ever get the cougar problem solved? And did you ever learn to shoot the gun?

    • Oh wow. I just read this too. How scary. I am grateful all we have to deal with hete are fox and raccoons!

        It is scary. Now there are wolves in the county, and they want to introduce grizzly bears too. We have never lost any sheep or goats to predators so far, but the day may come where we have to deal with that. A friend nearby lost an adult goat recently to a cougar.

      The cougar problem is never solved. But it is sad to say that our neighbor’s animals are easier prey than ours. We know they are around but have not seen any recently. One friend lost an adult goat to one not long ago. I did learn to shoot a gun though. The orphan calf we were bottle feeding is Indy who we are watching to calve.

    I can’t imagine why “they” want to introduce grizzly bears in your county! That’s ridiculous, when it’s a populated area! Bad enough to have wolves and cougars! My sister has seen cougars in her area south of Puyallup. And it’s a heavily populated area, too.

      The grizzlies would be introduced up in the National Park which is always from us. But the wolves that started there are getting closer. I am all for it but it does make me nervous.
