Head over heels in love with the newest addition to the garden.. Holstein Cowpeas! These rare little beans are jam-packed with antioxidants and best of all, look like a miniature cow herd. Super-excited to see how they grow!
I love this photo of Dad! It totally sums up his complete dedication to his cows and the farm. This little calf was a slow starter and Dad had just managed to get it to take its first milk. One happy Mum and one relieved farmer in need of a cup of tea. .
Optimistic folk are saying winter is behind us following two days of lovely sunshine. Those people weren't calving this little heifer at a very cold 4am with a bitter east wind.
This little girl took a while to get going but by this afternoon was cheekily racing round the barn and snuggling up to any cow that would let her. Wise kid, they make excellent windbreaks.
The Beast from the East delivered beautiful scenes, a snow baby and a black eye when Jenny walked into a tree.. although we probably can't blame the Beast for that one.
Seven newborn piglets snuggled up in the sty. 🐖🐖🐖🐖🐖🐖🐖
Our lovely sow Gloria (named for the 1982 Laura Branigan classic - she's always running after somebody.. in the hope of more food) is due to have piglets any day now.
How many do you think she'll have?
