    Oh my – why is Jane in jail???

      Drying off, it’s only at night to make sure she takes in some dry feed in addition to the grazing during the day.

        Oh, of course – my apologies, I forgot she’s drying off. My Ruby is off-cycle again this year. I hope to manage my cows’ exposure to a bull to get them all on a natural late-spring-birth cycle, but need my neighbors to cooperate :-(

          Marilyn, no apologies needed, I’m behind the 8 ball too, Jane won’t calve until July which does not fit in good with our calving schedule at all. So now I need to either get her rebred asap if possible after calving, or milk through and breed after a long lactation to get back on schedule. But every bridge needs to be crossed first, since a lot can happen with calving etc., so we’ll see how it goes. Moving a cow back on the calendar is a long term proposition but much safer than dealing with a cow cycling for months while you’re milking :( It’s never very easy. As it is, she’s getting a fairly long dry period for building condition and I hope that helps her cycle soon after calving…

    Fabulous photo of the cat. Looking like that is it any wonder they have slaves and dogs have owners?

    Red, black or golden raspberries?

    All of the animals are beautiful, but I love the pictures of Jane!

    Well done. Nearly wordless, and the pictures tell the stories well.

    LOVE IT (and the narration)!!!

    Haha! Love it. We have a little terrier helper. Always stands in the hole you’re trying to dig, checking or rodents, or helping dig … somewhere, I have a photo of husband, lying on his back working on the sink plumbing, and right next to him, the terrier, lying on his back, also peering up at the plumbing.
