Apparently I happened to show up just in time to catch everyone napping.
Buttercup was too quick for me though.
The blog is WAY behind, largely due to two things… lack of technology (hopefully now remedied) and BABIES!
Duchess was due with an unexpected calf (unexpected in the sense that we brought her home believing it fairly unlikely that she had been bred) on October 17th. Fortunately, she went overdue, considering our family was expecting a new little bundle of joy ourselves!
Now that new routines have been established, I’m finally able to present to you our newest farm addition.
“I give you Princess Buttercup!” (Couldn’t resist a Princess Bride reference…) Born October 28th at 75 lbs, she’s a big, spunky girl, especially for a Jersey. But now that she’s 2 1/2 months old, she’s hogging all the milk!
