The Giant Marshmallow

Well I think Daisy is gonna be a keeper.

We got two giant marshmellows and a round bale of hay. We have to go get the other bale soon.

I've never had a giant marshmellow, but the cows seem to like it. The goats aren't too fussy for it.

Woody is too small for freezer camp and I don't want to keep him all winter, but we found someone that will buy him. He's going to pick him up soon. We're trading him for pork.

Dave went to the dairy where we bought Daisy and Woody and asked if it was okay if Daisy didn't go to freezer camp and if it was okay if we bred her.

They said it wasn't an issue and they'd even come and artificially inseminate her when the time came!

How cool is that!

They also said she wasn't a twin, which is good and that she's either Holstein/ Black Angus or Holstein/Limousine.  I think Angus.

We put a collar on her and she wasn't too happy, but she'll survive. 

I'm on vacation for the next week so I'm going to work on leading her around.

Daisy and her new bling.

Well we are still waiting for winter to show up. It's great in a way since the water outside still hasn't frozen yet so I don't have to drag water and the chickens are laying like there's no tomorrow, but it's very muddy.

I mean here it is Christmas eve and the lawn is full of nightcrawlers.
It's also not very festive. 
I think we've had one sprinkling of snow so far and it didn't last long. 

Tomorrow for Christmas we are expecting a Nor'easter. 70-80mm of rain. Yuck.

Simonne and Emilie want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hopefully snow soon!!!

Have a Blessed Evening.


  1. Lisa, yeah, it's not Christmas weather here in Nebraska either. November brought the only snow we've had so far this year. The last few days have been misty drizzly days with the threat of snow but none so far. I'm not sure what to make of it. We still have January and February to go so there's still plenty of time to get snow and cold. It's just not really Christmas without it being snow covered. Winter drab brown is not my favorite color.

    Have a great Christmas Day.
