Post #98 – Get Set

Cowdy Howdy!

Last year we added another element to our funny farm – nurse cows.  Now our herd size is nothing compared to PW‘s, it is however big enough to keep Mr. Bum busy.

This is a picture of part of our herd. At this time we have 2 momma cows and 4 calves. Our momma cows are Holstein/Jersey crosses.  Both breeds are great milkers.  That’s about all I know.  The Holstein part is the breed that most think of when thinking milk cow.

The cow on the far left is Elsie and the right is Debbie.

See if you can guess which calf Lil’ Bum picked out last time her and Mr. Bum went to buy calves.

If you guessed the Dalmatian white cow then you were right.

Here is an up close of mom Debbie and baby.
