This little peanut arrived yesterday morning with temps at 7F with -10F wind chills. She was fairly chilled. She spent the day in the barn warming up. This is her this morning. Calves are tougher than one thinks.
Well the dream of growing and producing our own food is one step closer! Jake our oldest having his first glass of goat milk from our new small herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats!! Yay! So excited! #smallfarmlife
Excuse my crappy photo taking and the morning shadows in all the wrong places but I just flipping love this cow. She is super laid back and quietly waking her up for milking and having her enjoy some affection makes me feel blessed .
Another night, another baby, this time we have Sansa born to Holly at 2am. Holly took to motherhood straightaway and there were no probs with little Sansa suckling on her. Swipe along to see a pic of Holly when she was just a calf herself 2.5 yrs ago. Good news with Bobbin and Maisie too. We helped Bobbin realise suckling isn’t as bad as she thought, and saw Maisie feed on her last night. Hopefully no more dramas or needing to bottle feed. 😍😍 #microdairy#jerseycows#mountainhallfarm#jerseycalf#rawmilk#smallfarmlife
