I have spent the last three days looking at a cow’s butt.
What we did wrong was not looking ahead when we purchased Rowdy, the Highland bull. We were excited to have him but when we put him in with our Dexter cow Marji that put the first possible due date at July 11. This is only 3 days before the Winthrop Rhythm and Blues festival which we had gone to for 12 straight years. So Tom, his son, his daughter, son-in-law, grandson and our blues friends Anne, Jeff, Pam, and Tommy all went, and I have spent the last three days looking at a cow’s butt. I did get some farm chores done but would rather be somewhere else.
The life of a farmer, I guess. Animals come first.
