Belle came to live with us on April 11, so it's been almost a week, and the only thing I regret is not getting a milk cow 10 years ago. I'm hoping I feel the same way when it's snowing and blowing outside!
Dallas and I drove over to Grinrod last Friday and picked her up and brought her home. It took her a few days to settle in but she quickly adjusted. She was raised in a dairy barn with Holsteins and the owner was getting rid of all of her Jersey cows to make room for more Holsteins, it was a pretty big operation and I'm sure Belle is missing some of her other buddies.

We're starting to get into a routine and on some days she gives me almost 6 gallons of milk. Hubby and a friend modified my battery operated goat milker to work for a bit longer and it's been a blessing, no sore hands for me!
