Jane’s Got Mail
kay, first Jane gets seeds in the mail and now clothing. :p Cow couture has trickled down from the equine world. A long, long time ago, I had this great idea to make a fly mask for Jane’s grandma, Lee, short for Wilsonview Nick’s Cecilee. Well my muslin pattern for a cow fly mask has languished so long in my UFO (unfinished object to the quilters among us) area, I don’t know if it actually is with the quilt stuff or the milk cloth muslin…gah.
Alas, while I was putting that idea on the back burner, Kirby, a family cow aficionado on the Keeping a Family Cow proboard wasn’t languishing, she was busy making her cows comfortable.
Now Jane can be a little more comfortable this summer. I like the No-Fly from Crystal Creek, but Jane HATES it! Cows and strong essential oils are not a good mix. I wrote about applying the No-Fly in this post, but I look forward to not using it this summer on Jane’s face and putting this fly mask to good use.
Kirby has some fly masks made ahead in anticipation of the summer fly season. Jane is sporting green, but navy, salsa, red, blue, orange, yellow and beige are also available in the sizes below:
Extra large over 1200 lbs $14.50
Large 750 lbs – 1200 lbs $13.50
Mini/ Medium 350 lbs – 750 lbs $10.50
Newborn/small 40 lbs to 350 lbs $ 9.50
Newborn/ x- small under 40 lbs $9.50
You can contact Kirby by sending her a personal message on the Keeping a Family Cow proboard, her member name is 4ever.
If the feedback she has received from other members who are using these fly masks is any indication, these masks hold up very well, due to the Kirby’s workmanship .
