Honey... is home!

I found a cow. Honey, a jersey, arrived home today with her 3 week old bull calf and a Holstein calf that the farmer had purchased to put on her. (He was not interested in milking any more.) This will work out perfectly. On the days I can't milk she will have the calves to nurse. Down the road we will have beef for us and enough to sell. Honey has not been messed with for a while so it will take a few days for us to bond but even this evening she was already coming around. I will have the vet out on Tuesday to do a TB test so that gives us lots of time to get to know one another. Jasmine has been missed so much and I shed a few tears on the way to pick Honey up, but once again the homestead feels complete.

And the set of twins born last night? Both bucks! Arghhh...
