Hard Day at The Farm
Today is the day for this cow. She was Momma to our twin calves last year and I have spent some time with her, but she has become aggressive towards anyone that gets near her pasture and so we made the decision that she will be the one to go to the butcher. We had a different one that we intended to send that we have not had at home and spent much time with, but changed our minds. She actually charged at the fence last week while my granddoll and husband were there to give her a few flakes of hay until the round bail could be put into her pasture.
She seems to dislike the grand doll quite a bit and has charged towards the fence a few times with her out there, so for her safety and my peace of mind "momma cow" will be dinner on the table within a few weeks. I know many people can't think of them like that but as a farm family you learn that it is a part of life.
We are under a winter storm warning for the weekend and I dread that but I am sure it will give me some beautiful pictures! I have some things to do today to prepare for the snow. I am hoping the grand doll will help me get a few things done around here.
Until we meet again, may your trail be blessed and your ride be smooth!!
