One Day Old
It rained constantly today. The barnyard and pasture became extremely mucky, especially after our little earth-moving project yesterday, and the cows hung out inside the loafing shed. Lariat's new calf (we still haven't settled on a name) was frisky and curious. Lariat is a good, attentive mom, but her udder is very full and uncomfortable. When I went out to do evening chores, the calf was running laps around the shed.
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
