She’s special. More like a pet, less like a farm animal. She already follows us everywhere, including right out of the main pasture the day we turned her out after her short period of quarantine in the barn. She now resides in a little fenced in area, closer to the house, with her new roommate Laverne, one of our Kiko doelings.
When she’s ready, I have big plans for all the milk she will provide, including some kick butt cheese curds (or what we refer to as squeaky cheese) using a mix of Lilac’s milk and hers. Oh, and I absolutely intend to milk her on our deck, right outside our back door- ya know, because I can! 😉
*Everyday this December I am striving to post a picture-a-day in the hopes of capturing the little moments that may seem ordinary at the time but, when strung together throughout this naturally hectic month, become the extraordinary ones that keep me ground until the new year. If you want to join me go here. I would love to share in your days as well.
