I have ALWAYS wanted my own calf. Seriously. But not a cow. Did you know in Haiti or Dominican Republic or someplace around there- I don't remember which country!- they have 'miniature cows'?? I think we need to buy the lot behind us from my parents and get a miniature cow for the kids, don't you??

Looks like fun! I don't think I could eat it- are you going to breed the cows and get a milk cow?

Dalene said...

There are miniature herefords here in the states. We want one, but owning livestock is contrary to our homeowners association rules.

A friend of mine had cattle as a child, and she would put mascara on their beautiful lashes. All the cow needs now is a bow and a bell. Treat it tenderly and you will have very tender steak.

You can never eat that cow! Nor the chickens. The kids love them as pets.

That last picture of Hope is absolutely beautiful!!!
Was that taken with a new camera?;)

Charissa said...

Amy and Bethany, YES, it was taken with my new camera! It is a Canon Rebel and I have lots to learn about it!

I love Dalene's comment about the tender steak. Although, you may have a hard time convincing the children that you want hamburger and steak instead of a pet.

Congrats on the camera. I have a canon, too. I really enjoy it. Still learning about mine, too.

Hi Charissa!
Nah - don't eat the chickens! Just eat the eggs! :) That's what we do!
As for the adorable cow... he won't be for much longer! It is a bit easier as the cow gets bigger and then when the "deed" is done - it takes a few weeks for the cow to come back in white paper!
I had a hard time with our piggies last year - but got over it fast after the first ham! I would never make a good vegan!
Enjoy the baby time - its great experience for the kids!
Take care!

Love the picture of Hope and the calf. I know how to kill and pluck a chicken. Tom and I learned in Goodland, Kansas. It isn't very pleasant either.

Rebecca Rovenstine said...

I hope you don't eat them! They are so cute! Over Spring break maybe me and my family will come see them!

Oh my gosh, that second picture just kills me.
And what the heck does Hope think she is doing? Growing up so fast.
