(Pictures taken [by me] at her previous owner's place.)
I got a cow!!!!
This one is not a beef cow. She's a MILK COW!!
Because she's not destined for the freezer, her name is "Ofelia" (named by previous owners).
We took her to the vet before buying her, and he gave her a clean bill of health.
She's due to calve in just two months.
So we don't have all summer to learn more about milk cows and get everything ready.
We're going to learn to milk right during cherry harvest. We don't even have a milk bucket. Or milk jars. Or a barn. Or a milking stool. Or a kerchief. If I'm going to be a milkmaid, I need a kerchief (and wooden shoes?).
